Question Can't Burn DVDs with K3b


I'm trying to burn the slackware 11 iso with k3b but I get the ff error:

Can you burn other CD/DVD isos with k3b ? Has it worked in the past ?

So you are running k3b as root, right ? And you go to Tools -> Burn DVD ISO Image ... -> select the .iso -> make sure burning device is right -> set everything to Auto (should already be Auto) -> Start Burn

A few more things to clear out of the way: The drive works otherwise right ? you can put a CD/DVD in there and it will read it right ? None of the packages that you installed were corrupt were they ? Did the drive work at some time in the past ? on some other distro or on Window$ ?

If it's not any of the above, then what filesystem do you have ?

(It is rare, but using the ext3 filesystem my DVD+-RW drive will not burn things correctly. I don't know why. I have yet to find an answer.)

Anyone have any other ideas (perhaps a simpler explanation) ... that's all I got.

EDIT: I see from another thread that you compiled your own kernel ... which kernel were you running when you tried to burn ?

Yes it worked previously on window$. No corrupted pakcages (checked the checksum before burning). And yes it can read cds on Slackware.

I use ext3 too. Awww that may be the culprit..

So which kernel were you running ? If it was a stock 2.6.x kernel, then I would say try another filesystem if you can ... if not, try another kernel.

I was using the default 2.4 kernel when I got these errors. Haven't tried on the 2.6 tho (I upgraded my kernel). Ok I'll try your suggestions. Thanks for the support man! I appreciate it

could u able 2 write cds
cdrecord --scanbus error????
did you screwed up your lilo?? means append lilo? (no need for that)

go to this link http://rkrishna.tp.googlepages.com/slackerbasics#cdtool
add simulate option to the command ie "-dummy" before writing
-dry-run for dvd

if simulation is working you can start burning cds without the -dry-run option

So does k3b use 'dd' to burn iso images? I didn't realise that. You could perhaps try using growisofs from the command line. I've never done this, but:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd --speed=1 /home/anwar/slackiso/slackware-11.0-install-dvd.iso

Also, check the symlinks. Growisofs assumes you're using /dev/dvd. You seem to be using /dev/hdc which is symlinked to /dev/cdrom. So that may be causing problems.

No, growisofs has an in-built dd. That's what you are seeing in the log.

2.4 kernels require SCSI emulation for burning to an IDE device but 2.6 kernels do not.
For 2.4 kernel check the bootloader to see if you have a kernel boot option hdc=ide-scsi
Your burner device ID will now be /dev/scd0.

not for the new 2.4 kernel series (i suppose) > 2.4.29

Hello everyone! I got same problem here.After searching via google and yahoo,I found the solution.Please read the following website:

http://lists.debian.org/cdwrite/2006/10/msg00007.html

I tried cat myiso.iso | growisofs -Z /dev/your_device=/dev/fd/0 and it works!

P.S.Using Slackware 10.2 here.I will upgrade to Slackware 11 soon.A bit lazy...
