Re: DVD Burner under kvm? Revisited



Sure! At least if you use qemu-kvm directly, and not via virt-manager. Just include
-cdrom /dev/scd0
among the command line options.
Ok, I have mounted various dvd media (dvd-rw, dvd-movie and others)
and it still does not recognize the device as a dvd burner.

I have checked the ownership of the /dev/scd0 device and it is owned
by my user and the disk group.  I am not sure how I will be able to
get the device to burn dvd media.  My wife uses a proprietary piece of
software that on runs on windows and it creates a backup of the data
she inputs, I would like to have her use that in a virtual machine and
be able to backup her data to a dvd-rw.

Any other suggestions and ideas would be appreciated.
