error when attempting to burn an iso image to DVD


I believe this is a hardware problem, so I hope I'm in the right forum. First the truth, about a week ago a DVD wouldn't come out (un mount)and I held the open button down while I re-started to get it out. I say this, because I think this may have been what caused the problem I'm having now. When attempting to burn a video to a DVD, I get as far as the iso image beginning to burn, then I get the following error and I end up with a coaster....

Burning
Executing 'genisoimage -dvd-video /home/tvphil/dvd/ | builtin_dd of=/dev/dvd obs=32k seek=0'
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
/dev/dvd: "Current Write Speed" is 2.0x1352KBps.
:-[ WRITE@LBA=10h failed with SK=5h/ASC=21h/ACQ=02h]: Invalid argument
:-( write failed: Invalid argument
/dev/dvd: flushing cache
/dev/dvd: updating RMA
/dev/dvd: closing disc

What does this indicate? If it is a mounting problem, how do I correct it and make it normal again? I'm using Ubuntu Feisty (7.04) with the latest updates. I've tried 3 different DVD burning programs,DVDStyler, Gnome Baker in combo with DeVeDe and the default Gnome cd/DVD Creator, it happens with all 3, with the same error. Also, prior to my DVD stuck-in-the -tray episode a week ago, I had no problem burning CD's or DVD's.

Error:
Quote:
WRITE@LBA=10h failed with SK=5h/ASC=21h/ACQ=02h
... look in the big list and get a match:
Quote:
[SK]5 [ASC]21 [ACQ]02 INVALID ADDRESS FOR WRITE
... look for other contexts for the error and here
Quote:
The problem is normally seen if the media is defective or not working well with the DVD burner. It could also be a media type which is not supported by the burner.
It also comes up when the DVD writer is toast.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the DVD drive isn't toast.I use a dual boot with Winblows and it burns just fine there (unfortunately).

Presumably the media ain't bad either, in that case...

Try running the burn command with the verbosity turned up (wodim -V).

If the disc failed to unmount before rebooting could there be a lock file hanging around in /tmp or /var/tmp? That happened to me a couple times with wine and a dial-up modem.

This in response to Simon. Does it matter where wodim-V goes in the burn command? I put it at the end and it just errored out and refused to burn.

Ahh frak it! wodim -V is the burn command... I didn't spot that you were using
Quote:
Code:
builtin_dd of=/dev/dvd obs=32k seek=0'
... for some reason I just figured you were using cdrecord or wodim because you listed "Ubuntu 7.04" as your OS (in your profile and post #1).

Can anybody write here some solutions for this error
(failed with SK=5h/INVALID ADDRESS FOR WRITE) ?
Same as described above (all).
With:
-growisofs
-LG DVD-RAM drive
-BIOS [IDE] mode
-DVD media = Intenso DVD-R 16x (green)

Thanks in advance.

At the moment it seams that there is no solution in the web and software development.
growisofs development is down now for a long time.
Maybe it is only a kernel module missing.
Or it is the UDEV system that causes this error.
Any hints are wellcome to solve this miss.

Just because I am curious, in your sidepanel it says under Distribution: My own. What do you mean with that, are you actually running LFS, or a spin-off of another distro?

There are many solutions on the web. If you are not specific, nobody can help you.

I would have started a new thread, you would get a lot more hits that way. Maybe try putting the SATA controller in AHCI mode.

It doesn't matter in which mode the controller works (native IDE, SATA->AHCI) there is always the same error: You can see that the DVD is getting written 1/3 and growisofs breaks with that error long befor the DVD drive pushes out the DVD.

Maybe the growisofs version 7.1 can not handle SATA?

I don't think there should be opened always a new thread for the same problem.

It is a GNU Linux system like LFS or debian.
