XcdRoast + external DVD writer Sony DRU-700A on USB - write problem
I want to use a new external Sony DRU-700A DVD writer to burn files from my HDD on DVD. It's connected on USB, and I have XCdRoast with cdrecord-ProDVD installed. The drive got detected, I can mount it on /dev/scd0, I have made /dev/sg0 and set the correct permissions.
The empty DVD medium gets detected, I select the directory to burn, and all looks well as soon as the burning process starts. There is a pause of about 10 seconds, and then it begins to burn with a displayed speed of 4x, and the progress bar goes up to about 1%. The it freezes again for a while, about 10 or 15 seconds, the speed display shoots to about 70x for a second, freezes, and it shows the following:
