unable to burn data dvd...


trying to burn a data dvd without success. using a memorex usb drive. i've tried k3b (which uses growisofs), growisofs directly, and xcdroast (which i think uses cdrecord); none work. here's the growisofs output:

Code:
root@ubuntu:/# growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=1 -Z /dev/sr0=/multimedia/Downloads/track-01.iso
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/multimedia/Downloads/track-01.iso of=/dev/sr0 obs=32k seek=0'
/dev/sr0: "Current Write Speed" is 6.1x1385KBps.

the closest thing i could find on a google search is that it may be related to scsi emulation; don't know if i can get around this using a usb drive? i'm currently running ubuntu breezy on a vanilla 2.6.12-9-386 kernel. i had success burning movies (hadn't tried data) previously; i was using mandriva 2005 with a custom kernel--2.6.14 i believe. any ideas?

Did you try making a CD or DVD with root. If it worked with root, then you need add your user account to a CD burning group or cdrom group.

The utility cdrecord is used for making CD discs and the utility growisofs is for making DVD discs.

You should not use USB to make CD or DVD disc because it will be very, very slow.

well, you can see the above command was as root. cdrecord + prodvd if i'm not mistaken is able to burn dvds. and a 2.0 usb connection is fast enough to burn a cd at 36x, and previously was able to burn a dvd at 8x.
