Linux - burn DVDs on the fly

This has worked for me, having the DVD-ROM and DVD-Burner both on secondary IDE. The source DVD was mounted on /media/CDROM. DVD-Burner was on /dev/hdd

 # growisofs -Z /dev/hdd -R -J -speed=2 /media/CDROM

NOTE in 2019: at time i wrote this post, DVD-drive and burner was attached with 40 pin cable. Stay classic!
