bash - enhanced burn

function net_bazzline_burn ()
  if [[ $# -lt 1 ]]; then
    echo 'No valid argument supplied.'
    echo 'Try net_bazzline_burn $isoFile [$opticalDevice]'

    exit 1

  if [[ $# -eq 1 ]]; then
    sudo wodim -v dev=/dev/cdrom "$1"
    sudo wodim -v dev=/dev/"$2" "$1"
This is available to my shell function on
