Ok here's the problem, new to linux, used to using windows and never wrote a script to do anything. Using suse 9.1. I want to burn dvd's but I want to use a kodak disc transporter which would allow me to make 75 copies at a time, it lifts the blank drops it into the drive and removes the completed disc and loads another etc. the kodak is a scsi device and my dvd writer is a usb2 device. k3b looks nice and easy to use but it doesn't have native support for the transporter, however i understand it will operate using scripts and these could alsooperate the transporter, but i've never done this in my life and don't know where to start. can anyone help?

Could it be that none of us can think of a legitimate reason to copy 75 DVD's at a time ? Wink

The script itself is probably quite trivial. The hard part is knowing what SCSI commands to send to the disc changer. If you knew that, you wouldn't even need K3b as the script could do everything.
