Burning Stardust.iso with cdrecord?

Post by mandoman » Wed Jul 21, 2004 11:11 pm

Not having luck burning the Stardust.iso (home version) with
Toast 6 on mac 10.3.4 that will read on my xbox (1.4 w/Samsung Drive)
using TDK 4x cd-rw media or Taiyo-Yuden CD-R media.

I figure I'll try 'cdrecord' (linux/unix command line).
Can someone please post the settings they usually use:
Ie burn speed, disc at once, burnproof on/off, etc?

Any recommendations on Media (type and brand)
I should use for a 1.4 xbox w/Samsung drive to burn this iso
that will work with either Toast 6 (mac) or cdrecord/dvdrecord (linux)?

samsung drive should be fine with any media.
I usually burn disc-at-once with burn-proof on
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

Thanks for the reply. Turns out the problem I am having is more likely
to do with the bios not loading correctly (no video), as posted in this thread:


Looks like the Stardust.iso is just a standard UDF file, easily burned to disc afterall.
But I'm still having an issue with the Stardust/Cromwell.bios :(

Another question along a similar line. Does anyone know the mkisofs options that will create
xbox readable iso's?

Yes, it does make xbox ISOs just fine. Thats how i roll Gentoox...

Code: Select all

echo "Gentoox Install CD (Stardust) ISO Maker"
echo "Making ISO..."
rm -rf /xxxxxx/ready/Stardust.iso
mkisofs -udf -r -o /xxxxxx/ready/Stardust.iso /xxxxxx/iso/
echo "Done"
As for your BIOS blues, go download the latest Gentoox loader from the doG¶ =ads section.

Thanks for the tips. I'm all set in the iso create and burn
department now!

Now I just need a simple command line perl script to rename files
to fatx format, not the bloated visual basic prog's I've seen
floating 'round... Anyone?
