k3b fails at 435mb DVD iso (previoously worked fine)
I have burnt many a DVD iso with k3b no worries at all. Now i have made 3 coasters trying to (the firt DVD-R coasters i have made since buying this DVD-RW unit over a year ago)

I have this in the output

Why is there a I/O error at 435mb (thats what it got up to when it ceased) ??

I have tried a few different images and all the same. These same images burn fine in Windows XP and Nero.

I hope its something obvious.

Thanx for reading.

As always the question is "What did you change on
the box recently?".
Kernel upgrade? New version of grow-isofs? New
IDE controller?

Yeah i dont believe i have changed a thing.

Been business doing Uni assignments lately so havent really played around with much.

May of updated kernel to 2.6.3-16.mdk though since it was working last.

So from that i may try booting into the older kernel and see if that makes a difference.
Gotta find my DVD-RW though, can't keep making these damn coasters.


PS what would have the biggest effect on burning besides the kernel ??

A motherboard with flaky DMA, broken firmware
on the burner ... turned off DMA using hdparm.

Just to name a few.
