What I'm trying to do is add a session to the DVD, that is not generated by Puppy's "Save" script, so it shows up in the disk's TOC with the title I want. TkDVD offers a checkbox in the Advanced Options page: "Add session to disk," but when I try to use it to add a session to my multisession DVD it says the disk is read only. I'm pretty sure this worked before, when I tried it in an earlier version of Puppy. Can anyone tell my what I need to do to add a large file as a session, to a multisession DVD?

That works, Ted, but I should have said "folder" or "directory" instead of "file." Embarassed I tried saving a folder containing several hundred mp3 files. The files were saved, but not the folder they had been in. Now I have several hundred mp3 files in the / directory of the DVD, named 01-01, 01-02, ...., instead of a folder named with the title of the book, and containing those mp3 files. Laughing

Do you know why TkDVD won't do what I want? If it's a bug I'll send the developer a bug report.

How is UDF coming along? Wouldn't UDF support make it easy to do what I want?

I tried it again, with a different folder containing 244 mp3 files and adding the -J option to growisofs. The same thing happened. Now it's a big mess with the mp3 files from 2 books mixed up. Laughing How does multisession Puppy save a session so it shows up as a folder when you mount the disk?

I hope that is a TEST DVD! You turned on MS mode naming methods with the -J option, It can self distruct any multisession in the future... AHHHHH!!!!
No really, this option caused us problems in the past.

Code:
growisofs -M /dev/dvd -D -R -new-dir-mode 0755 -graft-points NameOfDirectoryOnDVD=/mnt/PathToSourceDirectory

It's my test DVD, Ted. Very Happy Thanks for the code. I'll try it today.

Your recipe worked perfectly, Ted. Using -J in the previous try didn't ruin my test DVD so I copied all 244 of the mp3 files from the DVD to /tmp, then used /tmp as the source directory in your recipe so I had to change /mnt in your recipe to /tmp. Also, either the name of the directory-to-be-created on DVD has to be exactly the same as the name of the source directory, or you can't use spaces in the name of the directory on the DVD.

I found that I had to add -l (lower-case L) before it would work with long directory names:
Code:
growisofs -M /dev/dvd -D -R -l -new-dir-mode 0755 -graft-points Name_Of_Directory(OnDVD)=/(PathTo)/Source_Directory

Alas, no spaces or commas allowed in either the source or destination directory name. Sad
