Blank CD is not recognized/read/identified


I am using Mint LXDE 11. After wodim I get


wodim: Overview of accessible drives (1 found) :
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
0 dev='/dev/scd0' rwrw-- : 'LITE-ON' 'COMBO SOHC-5235K'
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Other CD with Data music or anything else works fine, except empty ones. It seems that the drive is keep on restarting/reading it and stops.

I tried to mount but it says no medium.
Code:
mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0
If I use Xfburn it says the drive is empty. Same goes to ImgBurn on wine.

You can't mount a blank CD, it has no filesystem on it. You can't mount an audio CD, same reason.
http://linux.die.net/man/8/mount

Give some more info on what you are doing, or what you are trying to do.

Some examples, use you own parameters.

Burn files to DVD.
Code:
growisofs -use-the-force-luke=tty -Z /dev/sr0 -J -r -speed=8 -dvd-compat -pad -graft-points /path/file /path/file
Make .iso ready to write.
Code:
mkisofs -R -J /path/to/files -o /path/to/output.iso
Burn .iso to DVD.
Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=8  -use-the-force-luke=tty -Z /dev/sr0=/path/name.iso
Burn .iso to CD.
Code:
wodim  speed=8 -tao dev=/dev/sr0 /path/file.iso
Burn files to CD
Code:
mkisofs -J -r -pad -graft-points /path/file /path/file | cdrecord dev=1,1,0 speed=8
Code:
genisoimage -J -r -pad -graft-points /path/file /path/file | cdrecord dev=1,1,0 speed=8
Write audio CD.
Code:
cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 speed=8 -audio -pad *.wav

I don't know what you have going on with them, never use either.

I am trying to make back up cds for some games.

What happens is when I insert a blank, nothing happens -- I can't find the blank. And when I head to Xfburn to burn a data cd, it says there is no media to burn(check attachment).

Also, I have an .BIN and .CUE files. I want to burn them into my blanks, too.


However, I tried that command and this is what I got:

What command? Post the commands that you are using.

Where does cdrecord say your drive is?
Code:
cdrecord -checkdrive
or
Code:
wodim -checkdrive
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ut-hal-936155/

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-linux-915624/

Is user in the cdrom or optical media group? Can you burn as root?
http://www.manpagez.com/man/1/groups/

If you can't use the drive then..
Drive is no good
You aren't in the optical group
wrong parameters to wodim
CD media is no good
You did not umount the last disk

Let us know what you find.

-Drive works fine with filled discs. Just not empty disc.
-I will see into that. I get this, though: name adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare
-I am pretty sure that I inserted right paramets. Doesn't hurt to try again.
-CD media are good, and of two different brands.
- Maybe(because I have two files written as Floppy(with arrow) and Floppy0)

I simply want to burn an ISO on a blank disc.

Is this a dual boot PC and if so does it work another OS?
Just to verify are you are using the correct blank media type i.e. CD-RW or CD-R?

No. It has only one OS. I am using CD-R.

A couple of thoughts
Quote:
Detected CD-R drive: /dev/cdrw
Did you try.
Code:
sudo wodim -v -tao speed=4 dev=/dev/cdrw /home/name/xubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso
Also does the drive and media support burning at 4X.
Code:
cdrecord -prcap
or
Code:
wodim -prcap
or maybe for you
Code:
wodim dev='/dev/scd0' -prcap
You may have to have a mention of the drive in your fstab file. I think that I have heard buntu users mention that.

I don't know what you have wrong. Keep looking. Google. Good luck.

It could be just my CD Driver needs cleaning, I believe. I have reconnected the IDE cables and power cables. Same thing. I believe it does not support 4x. Just 6x, but still does not work.
