Re: [Xen-users] DVD-R/RW in DomU

What´s the best way to have my DVD-R/RW burner working in a DomU? Just
'phy:hdc,hdc,w' would do it? or there´s some other way?

It's not that simple; a DVD burner needs extra control codes that our virtual disk device driver does not support. The best you could do would be to give the domU control of the IDE controller itself, but as it probably has your hard drive on it's probably not the best way :-/

You'll probably want to find some compromise using other features in the system (e.g. mkisofs on a partition, then unmount that partition in the guest, mount it in dom0, then burn in dom0. You could make this work via a script which the guest could call).
