I can't burn data cd's or iso's with K3b!?!?!? Error code 254 WTF!?!?!?!?


Hello everyone, I downloaded the mandrake 10.0 official iso's last night and i'm trying to burn them with k3b in mandrake 10.0 community on a hp753n with a Plextor PX-708UF +-R dvd/cd burner and it won't work. Prior to this, I burned all my data (about 101 mb worth) in mandrake that I wanted to keep over to the official distro and it worked fine, even verified the data and everything was there. But when I try to burn a iso cd or data cd for each of the almost 700mb iso files, i get these errors:


Medium or burner do not support writing at 2x speed
Switching down burn speed to 0x
input/output error. not neccessarily serious
input/output error. not neccessarily serious
cdrecord returned an unknown error (Code 254)
Unknown error 254
Please send me an e-mail with the last output

Even when I try to burn at 1x speed I get the same errors with these lines also:
Probably a buffer underrun occured
Please choose a lower burning speed

That was at the lowest speed and it still didn't work. Burning in windows with Nero is flawless for me. I tried to burn the iso's as data cds so i could burn them as images in Nero on XP but K3b won't let me burn! Is there a way that I can access these iso's from winXP so I could burn them in Nero? If so, please explain. I am a newbie at linux.


Here is the debug output if it makes any sense to you.

cdrecord is your friend.

do this first:

cdrecord -scanbus

you will get a response that will be 3 #s seperated by ,

for me its 0,0,0

then once you have that its extreemly simple to bunr with cdrecord read the man for more details, but i just do this line for my burner:

Code:
cdrecord speed=2 dev=0,0,0 filename.iso
and hit the enter key. its that simple. sitback and wait.

I only have these buttons:

New Project, Open Save

And these toolbars:

File, Settings, Help

Any ideas?

I just downloaded Debian Linux and will like to burn the images

You may want to try installing the actual cdrecord, as you are using the cdrecord-clone. The clone gave me MANY issues in the past, all of which were fixed by removing it and installing the actual cdrecord.

Get it here...

http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/cooker...3mdk.i586.html

Hope that helps ya...

Good luckl...

I have cdrecord-2.0-6 installed (original RPM that came with RedHat)

However when I compiled my kernel, and started hdb as "ide-scsi" (trying to clone a CD), I received an error like this:

"Your version of CDRecord doesn't has clonning support"

Hope that works

As a matter of fact I have cdrecord-2.0-6.i386.rpm installed

I try downloading and installing it again, seems like it's excactly the same version

I installed cdrecord-2.0-11.9.1.i386.rpm as well, they all seem to be the same version

Do you see anything if you go to the Settings menu, then Configure K3b, and then click the Devices button? If not, try clicking the Add Device button and adding it manually. Also, you should check, in that same area, the Programs button. See what is says in the list for cdrecord. It should say the path is /usr/bin/cdrecord, but check the version as well and see if it's using the one you think it is. I say this because in the cdrecord message of the first post, you'll notice this (look at the last line)...

cdrecord
-----------------------
scsidev: '0,0,0'
scsibus: 0 target: 0 lun: 0
Linux sg driver version: 3.5.30
/usr/bin/cdrecord: Warning: using inofficial libscg transport code version (warly-Mandrakelinux-scsi-linux-sg '@(#)scsi-linux-sg.c 1.81 04/04/18 Copyright 1997 J. Schilling').
SCSI buffer size: 64512
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a28-dvd (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling

So, check both of those and let us know what you get. Also, post the result of

cdrecord -scanbus

Good luck...

If ppl receive error 242, don't worry

Just select "verify data after writing"

You'll see K3B outputs the following "Calculating the written data's md5sum", and you'll see the output is the same

I am burning Debian Linux right now, and it's surely working
