Burning ISOs to playback on TV/DVD


I can't seem to get this to work on my Ubuntu (Gustsy Gibbon - 32-bit) installation for an older DVD player (they work on newer ones). I was able to do this using Windows Vista just fine. Any ideas? I am using k9copy and/or k3b and neither worked. My regionset is set to 1.

Any other info needed?

Thanks,
drisay

Have you tried right clicking on the ISO - is there a context menu to burn the image to DVD.

How are you burning it in K3b? What options did you select/go through.

Incidentally, k3b is a KDE app. Ubuntu is a GNOME based distro and thus you will have installed some KDE libraries (for k3b to run) in addition to GNOME (default). If you want KDE then perhaps Kubuntu would have been more appropriate ???

Brasero authoring software is failry adequate I use it on ubuntu and xubuntu. Its in synaptic.

If you don't mind doing it in the shell...
Code:
dvdrecord -dao --eject driveropts=burnfree dev=/dev/dvd --data /path/to/ISO/image
should work. The region of the burner shouldn't make any difference.

To be honest, I can't think of any reason that discs burned by any burning software shouldn't work if you've got an ISO image already.

I didn't modify much as far as settings go in k3b, other than the burning speed to a lower speed. The only reason I went the k3b route is because of a suggestion I saw on some forum. I tried burning it using k9copy, but had the same result.

I'll give the command line a try, I have no problem trying whatever out.

Thanks for the quick replies. I'll post how the command line goes.

Thanks,
drisay.

I tried burning with dvdrecord and no luck. I couldn't actually write to DVD with it, it kept complaining about overburn. I tried different options and no such luck. I then noticed the tip to growisofs. The burning here worked, but still no good on one dvd player. Any other clues as to where to configure this? Or is this something that linux simply does not support?

This is the line of code for growisofs:
Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/scd0=iso.file

Bit confused now.

you mention that the burn is okay,

but then go on to mention that playback on one dvd player fails.



Do you mean then that it burn okay and indeed on some players your DVD plays ?

Please can you post the output of the dvdrecord session.

Yes, sorry, maybe that wasn't clear, but in my original post I said that the burned DVDs do not work in my older player, but do in newer players. ISOs burned through Windows Vista/XP worked on all of my players.
