What do you get when you use cdio(1) per the OpenBSD FAQ?
I have always used
Code:
cdrecord -v -dao speed=4 dev=/dev/cd0c /path_to_file
which always worked until now.


I have tried using cdio in the past, but had difficulty figuring out the correct syntax for commands. Which is why I use cdrecord.

Step by step burning of audio or data CDs with mhkybrid(1) and cdio(1) is described in the OpenBSD FAQ here:

http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq13.html#burnCD

If you want to continue to experiment with cdrecord, use the raw device as I recommende above. Block devices are normally used only for mounting.

I came back to edit my previous post and mention again that I installed k3b as an experiment and it could not detect the drive either.

That is where I originally learned how to make isos and burned them. I am not completely inept with computers. Only mostly inept.

I shall continue to fiddle with it. It is not an emergency at the moment.

I upgraded, but ran into a problem updating packages. While downloading the upgrades for LibreOffice the connection was lost. It took several attempts before I successfully finished the upgrades. However, I could not open a GUI because the firmware could not detected. I eventually gave up and reinstalled 6.4. Now the disc drive is working again.

I am inclined to believe that I missed some small thing I was supposed to do during the last upgrade and it snowballed into a problem. The bottom line is the issue is solved in respect to the problem being gone. As for the cause, I do not want to think too much about it, because it would give me headache.

Possible, but unlikely, unless you were doing a remote installation without the RAMDISK kernel. More likely, network troubles during the rc.firsttime(8) firmware update was the culprit.

By default, /dev/cd* does not have any group/user write permissions:
Code:
$ ls -al /dev/cd0*
brw-r-----  1 root  operator    6,   0 Oct 17 19:05 /dev/cd0a
brw-r-----  1 root  operator    6,   2 Oct 17 19:05 /dev/cd0c
misc/xcdroast has a script that a root user can run to change the permissions.

From the xcdroast pkg-readme:
Quote:
If you wish to enable CD burning for
non-root users, click the "Activate Non-Root-Mode" button. You will be
presented with the list of commands that are to be executed and
have the opportunity to cancel.
I would be inclined to add the user to the operator group, and chmod 0660 /dev/cd0*
