DVD/CDRW Everything works except I can't burn to a blank disc
 
The DVD/CDRW will play DVD, audio CD, read data cds, and write a cd to a file folder. However when I try to copy from the file to a blank cd, Xcdroast tells me that I need to insert a blank cd. When I insert the cd, it doesn't recognize it.

This is on a Toshiba DVD/CDRW installed on an IBM T40 laptop. When I opened the terminal and typed cdrecord -scanbus I got the following:

I have a feeling that there is something simple that needs to be done which will resolve this. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

make an iso out of anything with mkisofs, then try cdrecord dev=0,0,0 /path/to/iso

give us the error message

Thanks for your reply. I'm still working on resolving this, however the following messages were obtained:

the problem is xcdroast is using the wrong device:
0,0,0 0) 'TOSHIBA ' 'DVD-ROM SD-R9012' '1121' Removable CD-ROM
is your drive, scsi bus 0,0,0

Calling: /usr/lib/xcdroast-0.98/bin/xcdrwrap CDRECORD dev= "1,0,0" gracetime=2 fs=4096k -v -useinfo speed=16 -dao -eject -pad -audio "/home/nick/CD_stuff/track-01.wav" ...

dev=1,0,0 it is not using the right drive. configure xcdroast, the confioguration hould let you choose a drive.

unless the removable device on 1,0,0 is the buner, but if it is then it is not being recognised as a cd-burner, is it by chance a dvd-ram? a -ram is recognised as a slow harddrive rather than a burner device.

Thanks again as I plan on working some more on resolving this within the next few days. After it is configured correctly, I'll post the fix. :study:
