Hi.

If this is a problem for you, use different tools for the time being, and
care (/debug/advise about possible patches etc) for burncd. I see you
making a lot of "this doesn't work, it sucks" kinda statements, but that
is surely  not going to help anything at all.

There are actually some reports in GNATS regarding burncd, if you would
have cared to search around a bit first before posting your problems you
would have seen that this is the case, and you could also have seen that
some potential patches might fix the problems. It would have been much
more interesting for us (imo) if you could have confirmed that these work
or not.

Then the most interesting part in your statement "this is become a super
pressing issue forme becuase for business reasons I need to make a set of
cd's ASAP ("yesterday" ;-))" => Then fund some developer to resolve this,
if this is so important for you. Given that this is a voluntary project,
people tend to work on topics that are of interest, or are "Documented"
properly (good bug reports are more likely to be resolved then anything
else) etc. You cannot demand or state that something is important for you,
because it could not be important enough for the one doing the actual
coding.

Ofcourse there are reportedly a couple of tools that you might be able to
use: dvd+rw_tools, and cdrtools have some good reports around them (note
that burncd works for most people as well, but for some they don't work
that well, probably because of unknown or very new hardware).

Thanks,
remko
