burner won't burn...


I'm trying to get some music onto cd's, but k3b resets the burnerspeed to 0x every time I try for some reason. It says that the media or the burner can't handle 16x, which is the speed of my burner. It worked a week ago when I burned the Slack 10 isos onto discs, and the discs I used today are of the same brand. I have no idea what the cause might be, but I've tried to reinstall k3b three times, both from binary and source. Any ideas on how to fix this? I don't know if this is a hardware problem or a software problem, that's why this is posted in the general forum.

One week old. If you're thinking of the fstab, then this is what the relevant part looks like:

Code:
/dev/cdrw        /mnt/cdrw        iso9660     noauto,owner,rw  0   0
And oh, when it didn't work at first I changed ro to rw.

Thx, but I've just discovered the source of the problem: DAO was broken. It worked when I tried RAW and TAO, so I guess I'll just have to reinstall DAO.
