Error writing blu ray data discs with k3b?


Does k3b require free hard drive space at the finalize media stage?

I'm trying to write a 17.6 GB file to 25 GB media with 18 GB free space on the hard drive.

My disc seems to write 100% then displays "Error". This is the debugging code:

It seems like you are tight on disk space for a large project like that. Have you considered simply adding another disk drive? They're cheap enough these days to get you enough space to handle anything you throw at it.

Even an external USB drive (esp. if you are using a notebook) seems like a reasonable option to ensure that disk space is not a concern.

I added a 2 TB SATA drive, formatted, mounted and changed the settings in k3b to point $tmp to the new drive.

Error still happens.

I'd move your entire project over. Or possibly even migrate /home to your new drive. Having just enough free space on your main drive isn't all that good. You could even try partitioning the new drive into two or three partitions. Make one /home, another /tmp and maybe a third as /var.

Having 2T free isn't good enough if it's not where k3b needs the space.

Question

The only lead I could find while googling was to set multi-sessions to no multi-session in my projects which I've done but get the same error. I also switched my project data files, partitions and temp files over to the gigantic free space but still get the same type of error. I'm reasonably comfortable that it's not the project because I'm picking different "source" data files on each burn and also creating new projects each time. The genisoimage lines have
Code:
/mnt/sdb1/tmp/kde-me/k3bEZ1534.tmp
as an example of their path.

It certainly seems like k3b has the space where it needs it. And what's interesting is I can eject/reinsert the media then mount it and the files look and display correctly.

Thoughts?
