k3b + asus dvd+rw 1608p3s config problems


Doesn't it work with single layer dvds?

I'm trying to write a normal 4.7gb dvd, but, besides the fact that it assumes the limit is only 4.4 gb, it says

Quote:
Found media: DVD+R sequential
Please insert an empty Double layer dvd+r in the drive
So... can I write on this dvd, or not?

Sorry if this is a newbie question. Any info will help. Thanks for reading this.

No, because there are no 4.7gb dvd's they are really 4.4gb.
It is being explained at K3B. Try creating a new data dvd and down right, where you choose the capacity of the medium it mentions "Why 4.4 instead of 4.7?"


Actually it's a sales trick..

ok, thanks, I got that.
But still, why does it ask for a dual layer dvd?
I just tried it on windoze, and it works ok (sort of...)
What am I doing wrong?

Are you really trying to write files below of total 4.4GB?
Also, did you run k3b-setup if you upgraded your drive or k3b? That also solves a lot of permission problems..

thanks, I don't know exactly what I did, but it works now. There is a slight possibility that the previous times I tried, the data size was slightly over the value it should have had.

Another, more off-topic question. The system seems to be a little slow. Is a dvd-rw and a combo (dvd drive+cd-rw) too much for a 1,8Ghz proccessor with 512Mb RAM to handle?

V of V

I run FC4 on a 1ghz pIII with 768mb and I can burn a DVD+rw and surf the web no problem. If I try to convert a avi to mpg while doing the previous two, I do notice a pretty good lag.

hmm, that's good to know.
It seems to be running ok, and if I add a bit more RAM, then everything should be perfect.
