Making a Video DVD with K3b


I am having a problem trying to burn a DVD with k3b.

I am selecting the option 'make a new video dvd project' and dragging a mpg file to the video_ts folder shown by k3b. When I select burn it fails and shows an error code:-

:-( unable to pread64(2) primary volume descriptor: Input/output error you most likely want to use -Z option.

No idea what this means am afraid. Any help appreciated.

My system is suse 64 bit version 10.0 kde 3.4

The full error report is:-

K3b can't convert your mpg file into dvd files. IN order to make a dvd in k3b you need to have the dvd files arlready created. Try Qdvdauthor to convert your mpg file to dvd files.

Another one to look at is Varsha. I know a lot of people who have had problems with either one or the other, but at least you have an option if one doesn't work for you
