DVD+RW issue, as a result of linux?


Hi Everyone

I recently burnt a DVD+RW using Fedora Core 2. This was successful and it seems that this can also be read in windows. However when I try to rw information from windows onto this DVD it cannot recognise the DVD. I tried erasing the DVD and think I finally managed it with great difficulty as most programs didn't recognise the DVD.

Is this because the first OS I used to burn the DVD with was linux? I'm not very knowledgable with computers, but will this be due to the different file systems that linux and windows use.

Sorry to cross over with the two systems on here, but linux users know more about windows than windows users do about linux!

Mnay thanks

Perhaps you did not mount the DVD correctly when you were trying to read it from Linux? Bottom line is that a physical DVD+RW is not going to be affected by the OS a particular PC is running.... worst case is that you try to save something to the DVD, and it does not work. It will not however injure or otherwise have an adverse effect on the DVD itself.

I'd suggest that perhaps the main issue is that you wrote data to the DVD in a format that Linux recognized but Windows didn't.

try burning a disk with closed session, no further data can be added after burn is complete. disks with open sessions are generally not as compatible with everything as disks with closed sessions/disks. check your settings before burning. try dao mode (disk at once) or else tao (track at once)

often I could not happen to a multissession cd burnt with 2 different software under Zinblows, so what is the chance to append from one OS to the other?

UDF file system is not suported by zinblows, is it not that you need to specify joliet filesystem when burning in linux for compatibility?

FC2 really old, if new to linux, time to upgrade to FC6

Perhaps it is the way that I'm burning the DVD+RW in Linux.

I'm using "growisofs -Z /dev/cdrom -R -J /xxxx/xxxx/location" as the command to burn.
and then if I was to add to the DVD+RW I'd use "growisofs -M /dev/cdrom -R -J ....." This has definately worked in the past, and think I have managed to read the data on Winblows before.

Would love to upgrade to FC6 but this is a work computer and think there's some older software that would not function on FC6. Got FC6 on the laptop though so will try experimenting! I'll let you know.
