Unhappy k3b dvd video writing problem


it seems i keep on having problems with moving to linux. this time, i was trying to burn a home video dvd using k3b, and i end up with these messages:

- could not write temporary file
- error while creating iso image
- :-( write failed: Input/output error
- Fatal error at startup: Input/output error

here's a part of the debugging output:
growisofs
-----------------------
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/dev/fd/0 of=/dev/hdb obs=32k seek=0'
:-( write failed: Input/output error

growisofs comand:
-----------------------
/usr/bin/growisofs -Z /dev/hdb=/dev/fd/0 -use-the-force-luke=notray -use-the-force-luke=tty -dvd-compat -speed=8

i've tried googling these info, but it seems it's only me who's having this problem, along with some other people who posted their gripes in a language other than english, so i can't follow their solutions.

i really need to get this dvd video done. any help would be much appreciated. this is one of the issues i have that makes me hesitate to dump my windows partition altogether. thanks for your time.

Looks like a permission problem with your /tmp directory.Strict Bastille settings changes /tmp permissions/ownership and even mentions about some upgrades/program installs wont work correctly.Maybe just check the permissions and make them yours.
Mine would be;
chmod Iron:Iron /tmp

the permissions on my temp folder's already set to accommodate me as a user. but maybe i'll go try burning the dvd as a root. thanks for the tip! much appreciated.
