i have not jet found any cd-recording program under linux , which support all major cd-formats like ISO9660, RockRidge, all Mac formats, packet-writing, on the fly copying of cd's and simultaneous writing on more than one recorder and being at the same time easy to use. this are the reason why this program was first released at the end of 1998 for our live!CD(t) Linux system.

from then till now there where many new features introduced and bugfixes done. new is the possibility to make TAR-backups on more then one cd ( not includet in free version. in the free version there can be only made tar-backups on hd ), using "on-fly" that is without first making image and then record it.

the first cd in the backup set is automaticaly equipped with minimal linux-system which makes it possible to boot from it and then restore the whole backup set. in version 1.1.2-76 ( or higher, not free version ) it is possible to make bootable multisession cd's. bootable and multisession cd's can be made "on-fly".new to are the possibility of recording on dvd-recorder ( tested on pioneer dvr-s101 ). dvd-recording are not possible in the free version of mystBurn.

the free version of mystBurn 1.1.2-83 can now be downloadet in german and english. it is be a frontend for cdrecord and mkisofs ( not a stand-alone version that no need this tools ). for this reason there are many features of the full version of mystBurn are not possible. this not includet features are the tar-backup function ( you can only made tar backups on harddisk ), the bootable-cd, multisession and dvd-recording. the reason for it is that this featrues are inpossible solong cdrecord and mkisofs will be used. when you need this features, you must get the full-version of mystBurn that no need any external tool ( and use our own routines for cdrecording
