mandrake 9.1 and burning DVD with Pioneer A05


I'm wondering if it is possible to burn DVD in mandrake 9.1.

I have a DVD A05 DVD-RW and CD-RW drive and all my attempts to burn a CD or DVD have failed. Gnome toaster does not recognize my DVD burner.

Do you have any suggestions?

thank you,
Louis-Charles Dumais

this is the basic dvd recording support, you will need:
those plus READ the directions, trust me you can cause trouble if you don't.

then also you may want to use a gui (I use this gui to make iso's but then commandline to record)
this program has dvd burnign support using the above program:
it also has directions on how to make it work, a packaged version might not work right and it does nto have the dvd-support builting read the directions.

Lightbulb use k3b from cvs

I very happily used k3b for all my cd burning under Mandrake for quite a while. The dev version from CVS supports DVD burning which I happily use with my Pioneer DVD burner. It supports both standards using the dvd+rw-tools- package that ships with Mandrake.

Follow these instructions to check out the source using a nifty script (k3b news section item from 22.08.03)

There have been some problems reported about the compilation failing, unless you have

a. an athlon system and use at least -march=athlon
b. use at least optimization O3 -> -O3

to do so (if you have an athlon system that is...) do this before compilation:

export CFLAGS="-O3 -march=athlon"

If you don't have an athlon system, try it the normal way and see if they have fixed the problem. There are packages for redhat and is push comes to shove you can try those as well.
