Burned a DVD (Data) with K3B on Laptop, Can't Mount it on Desktop?


Two boxes, both 14.1 64-bit (stable), burn a DVD on the laptop with K3B, read it on the laptop.

Insert on desktop (tried both drives), nuthin.

Uncommented /dev/cdrom in /etc/fstab, nuthin.

No auto mount, no manual mount, nuthin.

Thing says no media found in /dev/sr0; yeah, there is media sitting in there, dammit.

OK, what did I miss here? Did I not burn the thing right (just took all the defaults and I could read it back on the laptop). The drives (both of them) do work just fine with, say, the Slackware 14.1 DVD inserted.

Not a direct answer to your question but... I always use growisofs to burn DVDs.

Huh. Thanks for that.

So, reading the manual page, it looks like I could
Code:
growisofs -Z /dev/sr0 -R -J /home/trona/direname
and I'll have a readable DVD (that could be read on any DVD on any platform)?

Or, maybe, if I was sitting in /home/trona I could
Code:
growisofs -Z /dev/sr0 -R -J direname
This just looks too darned easy; gotta be some kind of a gotcha here... (before I waste another DVD screwing around trying to figure out what to do).

lshw reports these (on the desktop, only one of them on the laptop):

Yeah, /dev/sr1 is the burner, not /dev/sr0 on the desktop.

Thanks.

Yes. You could write:
Code:
growisofs --speed=2 -dvd-compat  -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /home/trona/direname
as growisofs is smart enough to follow the symlinks

I have to credit Pat in README.TXT for proposed additional options.

Maybe you could first run
Code:
growisofs -dry-run --speed=2 -dvd-compat  -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /home/trona/direname
to check that the command will do what you want before actually burning a DVD.

Well, after I did the previous post I figured, what the heck, give it a shot.

The shot worked (with the command growisofs -Z /dev/sr1 -R -J direname). Popped it out of one, into the other, automounted all by itself, life is good.

I will keep your last post, though, as it's probably better to tell it than to trust it... but, trusting it did work. This is good.

Thanks for your help.
