k3b and cdrecord error 255


Hi everyone

Just formed Fedora Core and I also installed k3b. When I try to burn aCd with my Sony DRU 510A, I get the following error message

cdrecord returned an unknown error (code 255)unknown error 255
and it is unable to create a cd from and iso.

I googled it and found only one reference in Italian. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks in advance.

Does it work using the commandline?

Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:

Hi fancypiper.

Found the problem. I brought down one of my backups of cdrecord, this version

[root@localhost bin]# cdrecord --version

Cdrecord-ProDVD-Clone 2.0.1 (i586-pc-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jrg Schilling

And everything works fine. The Fedora version was

[root@localhost root]# cdrecord --version

Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a19 (i686-redhat-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 1995-2003 Jrg Schilling

Fedora has an experimental version, which does not work. I put out a post on the Fedora users list and hopefully they fix it fast, since cdrecord is used by a lot of apps. Just FYI, the Fedora version reported find from cdrecord -scanbus, but when I got actual command from the debug message of k3b, got the following when I was having the problem

This was pretty much the error when I ran the command

/usr/bin/cdrecord -v gracetime=2 dev=1,0,0 speed=24 -dao driveropts=burnfree -eject -data /scratch/KNOPPIX_V3.3-2003-11-03-EN.iso

Thanks again for the quick response.

I have the same problem as you and I'm wondering how to uninstall this buggy version? When I try to install version 2.0.1 program says that the newer version is allready installed. How did you install this stable version?

Hi Elmer

I had an old backup or Redhat 9. So I just copied over k3b, cdrecord, cdrdao and the other file k3b uses. Sorry, I just can't remember what the name of it is. k3b uses 3 and I am sure that if you search, you can find the third one. The uninistall doesn't work. Unfortunately I have just moved to Xandros so I think those files are now gone. Have a merry Christmas.

Jim
