I want do these in terminal:

  • eject DVD-RW
  • Check DVD disc blank or not
  • Burn DVD if it blank (with any name I give)

But when I burn DVD with command sudo wodim dev=/dev/sr0 -v -data /path/to/data/ I cannot choose the disc name. I burn a DVD and open it, I saw the disc name is CD-ROM. How can I set disc name? And I don't want create ISO file because my data files is big!

  • We’re sorry, but Ask Ubuntu is not a forum, but a Question & Answer site: it works best if you ask one question, so you can receive one answer. When you ask multiple questions, you need to find one expert versed in multiple areas, which becomes unlikelier the more questions you put into, well, one question! ;-) So please, split up your question into multiple questions and drop me a comment so I can answer one of your questions. – David Foerster Feb 27 '18 at 7:10

genisoimage has a -V option that specifies a volume label for the ISO. You can use this program to create ISOs for the data you want to burn and let wodim work with the images.

-V volid
    Specifies the volume ID (volume name or  label)  to  be  written
    into  the  master  block.   There  is  space  for 32 characters.
    Equivalent to VOLI in the .genisoimagerc file.  The volume ID is
    used  as  the mount point by the Solaris volume manager and as a
    label assigned to a disc on various other platforms such as Win‐
    dows and Apple Mac OS.
