    Burning ISO CD not DVD

    I'm working with Kali 4.19.0-kali3-686-pae.

    I decided to download the Parrot Netinstall ISO to give that a try on a new computer - it's a small file and I have extra CDs laying around. I didn't want to use any of my flash drives for this cuz I've got them partitioned/formatted with backup images and programs already. So, I started with less /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info and got returns to say I can burn CDs and DVDs (see below):

    CD-ROM information, Id: cdrom.c 3.20 2003/12/17
    drive name:             sr0
    drive speed:            24
    drive # of slots:       1
    Can close tray:         1
    Can open tray:          1
    Can lock tray:          1
    Can change speed:       1
    Can select disk:        0
    Can read multisession:  1
    Can read MCN:           1

    Can play audio:         1
    Can write CD-R:         1
    Can write CD-RW:        1
    Can read DVD:           1
    Can write DVD-R:        1
    Can write DVD-RAM:      1
    Can read MRW:           0
    Can write MRW:          0
    Can write RAM:          1
    I tried using dd if=Parrot-netinst-gtk-4.5_i386.iso of=/dev/sr0 because I thought it was still good for CDs and got
    dd: failed to open '/dev/sr0': Read-only file system.
    I tried growisofs and got
    :-( /dev/sr0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: 9
    So I started grasping. I used mkisofs (obviously deprecated), cdrecord, mkdir /media/iso, and wodim, but I couldn't get any to work because they didn't either recognize SCSI driver or something wasn't writable, etc. I eventually installed Brasero and made the ISO, but what are my options if I want to use the terminal if I only have a small file on CD and not a full ISO DVD?

    How can you say that these cdrecord, mkdir /media/iso, and wodim willl work?
