Burner Command Line Options

Do any burner programs (Nero, E-Z, NTI etc.) have command line options
that would enable some scripting?

Nero comes with NeroCMD.exe. It works for me but the help is a bit lacking.

For what it's worth, here's an example I use as a sort of template.
The --write switch was key. It just did a simulation without it.

BurnCD.cmd:
"c:\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\NeroCmd.exe" --write --real --drivename
g --underrun_prot --media_type media_cdr --speed 24 --iso "Cat
Stevens" --close_session --verify c:\music\cat* "c:\music\Lady d
'Arbanville - Cat Stevens '70.mpg"

I'm not sure exactly where I put the file(s)/Folder(s) to be copied to
CD. I tried the following and a few other variations and got
incorrect param errors:

NeroCMD.exe --write --real --drivename W --underrun_prot --media_type
media_cdr --speed 48 --iso "Vid_230 --close_session

I excluded verify just to keep it simple. I'm running it from the
....\Ahead\Nero folder so I didn't include the conplete path to
NeroCMD.exe . Am I missing something. I'm burning what could be
classified as a "Data" file.

Thanks again for all your help.

You didn't close the disc name: --iso "Vid230" actually the quotes aren't
needed in this case anyway but one quote will mess it up. Otherwise it looks
OK, except for the files to be written are missing.

That is what need to know - WHERE to put the source file name that I
want to copy to CD.

Just stick it or them on the end of the command line like this...

NeroCMD.exe --write --real --drivename W --underrun_prot --media_type
media_cdr --speed 48 --iso "Vid_230" --close_session myfile.exe
anotherfile.txt thirdfile.mdb

You can use wildcards too. E.G: g:\burnfiles\*.*
