Wishlist: add Sd2f image burning support

Bug #386767 reported by Mathew Hennessy

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
cdrkit (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

Toast on Mac will create .Sd2f files by default, though saving as bin/cue will work as well.

It would be nice to be able to handle everything anyone can throw at me, especially in emergency situations.

Please add Sd2f support to the wishlist.

brasero is not a burning program but a GUI for burning programs.

brasero calls either cdrdao (which seems to be dead since 4 years
as there have not been any enhancemtnes since then) or it calls

The problem on Ubuntu us that Ubuntu does not include cdrecord but
a questionable fork that gets no maintenance....

Cdrecord is well maintained but there is no documentation for this
file format. Cdrecord supports bin/cue..... you need however to replace
the fork by the official software from:

Thanks, I did attempt to use BIN/CUE with the ubuntu tool (IIRC cdrecord is a wrapper for wodim on ubuntu) with no luck.. I also tried bchunk but it would not create an iso, only a bunch of cdr or wav files.. I ended up having to bchunk out to wav and then drag those wavs into k3b (and having gone from kde to gnome, trying to get rid of my kde deps)..

sd2f is basically the roxio toast/jam audio cd image format, not sure why they don't do just pure redbook isos, but it's likely because Mac audio geeks are more likely to tweak the image or do odd things with it that need to be editable until the final iteration goes to golden master..


Probably would be handy for linux audio folks to be able to work with that format for cross-platform compatibility, and I've seen nothing in my googling regarding sd2f and linux..

I mentioned already that wodim is not the right way to go.
It is unmaintained and based on a very outdated cdrecord,
so wodim only allows you to do with bin/cue what cdrecord
could do 5 years ago....

If you like more complete bin/cue support, you of course
need recent original software.

Your URL does not contain useful information on the
file format and even if it did help to implement support,
you would first need to upgrade to recent original software
first. So why don't you first try cdrecord?
