DVD-Burner not working


Using k3b, when I try to burn, I get error 255. I know the files aren't too big. It tells me to load media, and I already did, but still - nothing is burned.

Just a possibility, I have had no name dvd's in the past that k3b kept asking me to load media after inserting disks. Acted as though they were disks that were already burned and closed. I had two full spindles that I had to return due to only about one out of every eight being usable (on the spindles of no name dvd's I had). Is it brand name dvd's you are using?

Do you have both dvd+rw-tools and k3b-dvd installed, not just k3b?
