DVD burning issues
 
Ok, i've been avoiding these errors because i had 2 dvd burners.. one doesn't like burning DVDs, but burns CDs at '>4x', while the other burns DVDs at 4x max, and refuses to burn CDs... (messy...)

But now i'm temporarely stuck with my laptop's DVD writer, and i think its about time to find the problem.

EDIT I'm on kernel 2.6.11.7, udev 054, k3b 0.11.23, cdrdao 1.1.9, cdrtools 2.01, dvd+rw-tools 5.21.4.10.8. My dvd drive is /dev/hdc (/dev/cdrom).

CDs:
If i burn at 4x or less, it works, but if any faster speed, it fixates then crashes.

DVDs:
data dvd is terrebly slow (3x), while video dvd refuses to work..

An example error
k3b:
mkiso returned an unknown error (code 255)
Unknown error 255
Fatal error at startup: Input/output error

Debug output:
Code:

On a side note, incase this will help solve the problem, the second dvd burner is a USB2 one, so i have scsi emu enabled in the kernel. It's assigned to /dev/sr0 (/dev/dvd)
CD: refuses to burn CDs at all.. gives an error before even trying
DVD: doesn't burn dual layer anymore. Single layer is ok, but terrebly slow.

At one point i had one of these enabled in lilo.conf
#append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
#append="hdc=ide-cd"
But not anymore (i was recommended not to)

I'm stuck.. i don't know where to start.. heh

Some more info...
Code:

root@xushitop:/dev# dmesg | grep hdc
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0x4c48-0x4c4f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:pio
hdc: SONY DVD+RW DW-P50A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdc: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 8192kB Cache, UDMA(33)

EDIT: Hmm, i'm not sure if this might be an issue or not, but when running k3bsetup, under 'External Programs', it only shows cdrdao, and cdrecord. Should it also show dvd+rw-tools?

Also, in the debug output, it has a line
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/dev/fd/0 ...............
Does this have any relation to my floppy drive?! Coz this laptop doesn't have one..

I would suggest enable append="hdc=ide-cd" in lilo.conf, I burns dvd and cd with
this setting with no problem.

On my system the floppy is /dev/floppy/0 and /dev/fd/0 is a symlink pointing to
/dev/pts/1

K3b should show in 'external programs' growisofs, dvd+rw-tools and other like sox,
normalize...if you have them

I'm getting slightly better results with that enabled.

Internal DVD:
data dvd: avarage: It burns, i guess i should be grateful :)
video dvd: bad: Still same error.
cd: good: Atleast CD burning works properly now :)

Haven't checked the external burner yet, i'm more interested in the internal one now.

I do have them all, but I'm not sure why its not showing any of them on mine. Can i somehow manually set it up? Maby this might be the (a?) cause.

Thanks

For k3b, go to external programs menus and try the 3rd tab, click search or something similar
also make sure that it lists good search program paths (/usr/bin...)

Ah, sorry for the confusion. I was refering to k3bsetup's external programs part. If i go to k3b's external program tab, i see
cdrdao, cdrecord, dvd+rw-format, growisofs, mkisofs, normalize, and many more. But, the issues are still here.

EDIT:
Could it be that i might be missing any important configs in the kernel ?

EDIT 2:
Ok, i think this might not have to do with my DVD burner.. I just tried "Only create ISO image", to check, and it still gives me the same error

Edit 3:
Bah, screw this. i'll restart with another dvd later. Maby the transcoding screwed up the vob files for this one.
