K3B will not Burn ISO Images


On two occasions I have had to burn Linux CD iso images using Nero on a Windows machine (the irony)! K3B simply refuses to do a proper job of burning the iso's to disk. When I insert the disks after burning, I notice a Blank CD icon on the desktop even though I know that the CD media is not blank. Any attempt to mount from the command line gives:

Quote:

cdrom: hdd: mrw address space DMA selected

cdrom: hdd: mrw address space DMA selected

attempt to access beyond end of device

hdd: rw=0, want=68, limit=4

isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=hdd, iso_blknum=16, block=16

cdrom: hdd: mrw address space DMA selected

cdrom: hdd: mrw address space DMA selected

attempt to access beyond end of device

hdd: rw=0, want=68, limit=4

isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=hdd, iso_blknum=16, block=16
Im sure I'm not the only one whos experienced such problems. Is there an option in K3B that I'm missing (under Image Type in the Burn CD Image dialog, for instance, I selected the iso9660 option instead of auto detection). In the meantime, Im off to look for a Windows machine. Oy vey!

you could try MyBashBurn as an alternative, it is a super lightweight burning software made to run in the console or xterm...

Did you check your md5 checksums before you burned your CDs using k3b? k3b will automatically check your md5 checksum for you prior to burning an iso. I've had very good luck successfully burning a variety of Linux isos using k3b. Another thing you could try is to turn down your burn rate, the lower, the better.
