k3b dvd burn error


Hi,

I've been using openSUSE 10.2 for the last couple of months, and had no problem burning CDs/DVDs with k3b.

I sat down to do some backups yesterday. The first DVD+R gave me no problems (I resumed a multi-session disk), but have not been able to burn any more disks since.

Could anyone help me with this? I have copied the error log below.

Code:

2 things I noticed.

1.) Your DVD burner (/dev/hdc) can't be identified, which can definetly crap out trying to burn stuff.

2.) You're getting an I/O error when trying to burn from k3b (if=/dev/fd/0 of=/dev/hdc). Could it be that you don't have the right permissions setup on the device? Everytime I rebuild k3b, I have to launch the k3b setup. (Settings -> K3b Setup). The setup program should correctly set the permissions for you. Sometimes you even have to add your username to the group 'burning' or something, depends on how your distribution is setup.

3.) This is an afterthought. Are you sure the DVD burner itself is physically installed correctly? Like if the jumpers for master and slave are set, and it the cable is plugged in all the way, stuff like that.

Hi fourchannel,

Thanks for the help.

1. DVD burning hasn't been a problem all these years. It's an old laptop, and I've been using it since SuSE 9.0

openSUSE 10.2 didn't have a problem either - this is just since yesterday.

2. I ran k3bsetup, with user added in the 'burning' group. Didn't solve the problem
(It doesn't seem to be a problem with k3b - just installed GNOMEBaker - and it too gave me an I/O error)

Any idea on what could be wrong?

Regards

Well, we narrowed the hardware out of the problem. So we know that the problem lies somewhere within the software.

Running programs as root is generally a bad idea, cause should the program mess up or become compromised, your whole system could be trashed.

But for this, lets see if running k3b as root gives the same problem, or if it burns correctly. Should this be the problem, then permissions is what is keeping you from burning as a normal user.

In KDE, go to the start menu, and run "Run Program...", and type this in. This command will launch k3b with root privileges.
Code:
kdesu k3b

running as root too didn't solve the problem.

now it's even stopped writing to CDs. Looks more like a hardware failure now. Will have to see if it works in windows.

According to Windoze, I have no CD drive. Think now that there must be some sort of electrical problem.

Thanks for all the help.

You're welcome. About your drive, I would check both the master/slave jumpers and the cables. Sometimes I think I have broken hardware, but usually it's simply its hookup.
