"Data does not fit on disk", from k3b


I'm trying to burn a double layer dvd on Debian Sarge. k3b keeps popping the disk out with "Data does not fit on disk".

k3b 0.11.20
Qt: 3.3.4
KDE 3.3.2

Growisofs is version 5.21
cdrecord is 4:2.01+01a01-2

thanks!

Does KDE/K3b recognise the dual layer ability of the DVD burner?

I guess...
This is the output printed to the console, relating to /dev/hdd

k3b: Blockdevice: /dev/hdd
k3b: Generic device:
k3b: Vendor: HL-DT-ST
k3b: Description: DVDRAM GSA-4160B
k3b: Version: A301
k3b: MountDevice: /dev/hdd
k3b: Mountpoint: /media/cdrom1
k3b: Write speed: 7000
k3b: Profiles: DVD-ROM; DVD-R Sequential; DVD-RAM; DVD-RW Restricted Overwrite; DVD-RW Sequential; DVD+RW; DVD+R; DVD+R Double Layer; CD-ROM; CD-R; CD-RW
k3b: Devicetype: CD-R; CD-RW; CD-ROM; DVD-ROM; DVD-RAM; DVD-R; DVD-RW; DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD+R DL
k3b: Writing modes: SAO; TAO; RAW; SAO/R96P; SAO/R96R; RAW/R16; RAW/R96P; RAW/R96R; Restricted Overwrite
k3b: Reader aliases: /dev/hdd, /dev/dvd1, /dev/cdrom1, /dev/dvdram, /dev/dvdrw, /dev/cdrw


The only thing that comes to mind is that I'm trying with double dvd-r, instead of double dvd+r media. The problem is that I'm using the only double media available on market. Even these ones are quite rare here.

Does your physical dvd burner burn DVD-R discs, or only DVD+R?
Also, check if you have enough free space on the hard drive in the /tmp folder or mount point so that k3b can make an image, or part of one.
One more thing: 8.5 (or whatever) GB could mean only 8,500,000,000 bytes, instad of 8,589,934,592 bytes, depending on whether 1 kb=1000 bytes or 1024.

Not sure. I have to check it out.

I was trying 'on the fly'.

The source dvd was 6.X GB. That was not the case.

Thanks, bp. I have to make sure the burner is dual dvd-r compatible. When I grab info from the blank media, it says 4.4 GB available. Thats the best bet so far.

If you have latest dvd-writing software packages installed then it is quite likely a media problem. DVD burners are a pain in the ass anyway.

Yes, Im begining to believe it....

I was quite lucky to find double layer media on the market, regardless of what kind (*-r, *+r). Its gonna be troubling to find it again. In most cases, the vendors dont even know what kind they are selling...
