k3b burn problem


Hi,
I get these errors whenever I try to use k3b to burn the DVD structure. I have tried to burn a couple different DVD's and they used to work before.

growisofs
-----------------------
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/dev/fd/0 of=/dev/hdb obs=32k seek=0'
:-( write failed: Input/output error

growisofs comand:
-----------------------
/usr/bin/growisofs -Z /dev/hdb=/dev/fd/0 -use-the-force-luke=notray -use-the-force-luke=tty -use-the-force-luke=dao -dvd-compat -speed=4

mkisofs
-----------------------
/usr/bin/mkisofs: Warning: -follow-links does not always work correctly; be careful.
INFO: UTF-8 character encoding detected by locale settings.

use -input-charset to override.
/usr/bin/mkisofs: IFO is not of correct size aborting.

Could someone tell me how I can fix this problem.

I have no real clue but one thing I noticed was

Executing 'builtin_dd if=/dev/fd/0 ...

shouldn't that read perhaps

Executing 'builtin_dd if=/dev/fd0 ...

What is your directory structure like?

I am not sure but isn't /dev/fd a reference to a floppy drive. If so it could be the reason it says not correct size and it appears to be sourcing the floppy for it's input. Just a guess. Good luck.

That's a valid point. I assumed you had mounted your DVD under /dev/fd0 (unusual but possible). What device is your DVD drive?

Well, dd is a program to low-level reading data (from block devices, man dd). It wants to read from the device "if=/dev/fd/0" and to write to "of=/dev/hdb".

Does /dev/fd/0 even exist? Whatever, use the setup of K3b to straighten the paths and/or make sure that you copy files from devices that do exist. Also, make sure of sensible burning parameters...

linux:/home/root/.Azureus/downloads/RAY_DVDR_SWESUB_NTSC/VIDEO_TS # ls -l /dev/fd/0
lrwx------ 1 root root 64 2005-03-22 11:51 /dev/fd/0 -> /dev/pts/1

Apparently it does exist. Is there any way I can reset everything to default? I looked at the paths in the k3b setup and they all seem to be okay. Thanks for the help.

Um, oh, that is a (symbolic) link. I seem to remember that /dev/pts has something to do with the mouse / serial port(s)?!? That doesn't seem to be a valid devide to read data from . This path won't work, you have to change it but I dunno how, not enough data on K3b .

What you are saying makes sense. I dont remember making any changes to the configuration files. I also tried to burn as root, doesnt work. It was working fine last week. Anyways, do you know where I can find instructions to burn video dvd through commandline? Also, would removing k3b and reinstalling it help?

Thanks

<long shot mode on>

Search for a .K3b directory (probably in your /home/<your-user-name>) and delete or better rename it (This is DOTK3b!). This should reset K3b. Else I'm out of my depths here...

Turns out that the .IFO file in the VIDEO_TS that I downloaded off the net was corrupted. It was corrupted for 2 movies and I thought there was a problem with K3B. I used ifoedit (using wine) to correct the IFO's and it works fine now. Thanks everyone who replied.

ksgill, I have the exact same problem, down to the very same error message. If you don't mind, would you tell me how you used ifoedit to fix the problem? I dled the program off the internet and installed using wine. But what do I do next?

Thanks.
