cdrecord errors with k3b


I'm using fedora core 1
kernel 2.4.22-1.2149.ntpl
kde3.2
k3b-0.11.7-1.xcyb
cdrecord-2.01-0.a25.4.1

why I mention kde3.2 is because before with 3.1 everything was working perfectly. Now with 3.2 I keep having this problem:

cdrecord returned an unknown error code(code 255)
unknown error 255


that and the usual stuff about not running with root privilages. I did run it as su - root and I still got the 255 errors.


Why me???

Hi. I am getting the same error as you are. I have KDE 3.2 as well but didn't have k3b with a lower version so I'm not sure if that is what causes the issue. I know I was having some trouble with xcdroast recognizing my second drive as a writer, maybe this has been dragged over to k3b too. One of my cd-rw's works (the slower one) but the other doesn't.

I will try and do a search on what that error means exactly. I'll let you know when I get a solution.

I haven't been able to find out what the error means. If anyone else has any input, that'd be great.

I updated cdrecord to the a25 version and the cdrecord-devel as well.
when I rebooted it worked. Like I mentioned on Linuxiso, that was really rediculous to have to reboot.
