I am trying to follow the directions to create an automated backup from this site for my 11.10 machine:
The DVD that I'm working with is a Memorex DVD-RW 4x 4.7GB 10min.
I have written the following script:
#/bin/bash DVD=/dev/scd0 outfile=/var/log/burn-backup.log echo > $outfile echo Formatting $DVD...|tee $outfile dvd+rw-format -force=full $DVD|tee $outfile echo Writing $DVD...|tee $outfile growisofs -dvd-compat -input-charset=ISO-8859-1 -Z $DVD -R -J -pad -graft-points "/spenser=/mnt/backup" eject
And here are my results:
thom@thom-desktop:/usr/local/bin$ sudo burn-backup.sh Formatting /dev/scd0... * BD/DVD±RW/-RAM format utility by <email@example.com>, version 7.1. :-( mounted media doesn't appear to be DVD±RW, DVD-RAM or Blu-ray Writing /dev/scd0... :-( /dev/scd0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: 0
I'm at a loss as to how to proceed...
