Debian Multimedia :: K3b Burned Cdr Is Empty After Successful Burn?
Feb 14, 2011
I tried four cdrs and I can't get my dvd rom or dvd-rw to list the contents even though k3b says it was successful. If I open k3b it see the cdr and say sessions 1 appendable yes. I burned the cdr as multisession. I can only view the contents of the cdr by doing a continue multisession while in k3b. I'm using squeeze and kde.
I've just installed Xubuntu last night on a spare drive because I really wanted to try it out. Install and initial setup (upgrades, extras and so on) worked like a charm, then I got to burn an audio cd with Brasero starting from some mp3s floating around my external media drive. The burn process itself went good and the CD is fully readable, but I notice that CD-text is missing.
So, when I added files to the main window of Brasero id3 tags were there (I've seen them, plus I set each and every of them via Easytag before putting the files in my external media drive so I'm sure of that), but once the CD was finished there was no CD-text at all. Maybe I just have to download some additional packages which aren't included in Brasero or have missed some menu item about CD-text?
Why can't I burn image with k3b After I' ve tried to burn it it says: "Completed succesfully". But when I then check my DVD, there's absolutely NOTHING on it... and there it says:"0 Objects"It seems like it has only got a new label.And burning an image should else be one of the most easy things in life...And it SEEMS very easy when reading a tutorial.
I've installed krdc in Debian 7 amd64 desktop (with KDE), but I cannot connect to anything with it:
"Connect to" combobox is empty. Entering "rdp://Username@192.168.1.2" shows messagebox "The entered address cannot be handled". "Plugins" list is empty. "apt-cache search krdc" does not suggest any kind of "-plugn"'s that I could install. Deleting "~/.kde/share/config/krdcrc" does not work.
If launched inside terminal, it outputs this:
Code: Select allkrdc(30434)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType "KRDC/Plugin" not found krdc(30434)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "remote_desktop_dockwidget" with KXMLGUIFactory!
Occasionally I get on lenny an empty system tray when logging in KDE, no right click menu, no icons. The previous session had been closed regularly. Is there a way to properly shutdown in the circumstances and to fix the problem?
(I don't know whether this has something to do with this but, in the past, on typing by mistake the print screen key, I got multiple instances of ksnapshot launched automatically and had to delete the directory under 'home' ~/.kde/share/config/session and the file ~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc to prevent this from repeating itself at every KDE login. The empty tray issue, however did not arise immediately after this, so it might be unrelated.)
I burn a dvd with k3b or braseo and it says it completed the burn w/o error but when I go to put it back in to read it just keeps the read light on on the drive and wont read. I have tried to read the DVD on windows 7 as well and get the same result. I had this issue with Kubuntu 10.04 as well and wrote it off as a quirk of Kubuntu. Before that I had Gentoo installed for many years w/o issue. So I have a hard time believing that suddenly when I switch from Gentoo that I am having this problem with my drive.
The following is the dmesg |Tail from inserting a dvd burnt w/ k3b:
I'm trying to burn a DVD using k3b, and would like to access files from a shared network drive from a Windows machine. I can see the files in Nautilus from "Network Servers" and drilling down to the right directory, I can open the files no problem, but I can't get k3b to recognise them.
Firstly I can't navigate to the network drive from the file tree on the left in K3b.
If I drag and drop the files from Nautilus into k3b, it says "Problems while adding files to the project: No non-local files supported".
If I use Project -> Add Files I can then get to the network drives, but when I select and add the files it says "Remote files not accepted - You can only select local files".
In the end I had to copy all the files using Nautilus from the network share onto a USB stick, burn the DVD and then delete the files again. (I used the USB stick just to see if that counted as more "local" than a network share). Was there an easier / more efficient way to do this that I missed?
May be out in left field here so bear with me . If i have two iso movie burns whose total gb data is 4.7 or under can both be burned to a single disk using K3b ? Not clear on whether to burn iso image in devede as two separate burns or combine as one iso image . If burned separately in devede don't see how to put both on same dvd when using K3b > video project . New to this so maybe "can't get there from here " .
I have an odd problem with a copied DVD. I started with a commercial DVD and created an ISO file. The ISO file plays perfectly with VLC. I take the ISO file and burn it to a DVD+RDL without error. The burned DVD will not properly play on my computer or DVD player. It loads, but the menu is jerky and full of video block artifacts. The menu does not function properly. I tried this more than once with different software, including going directly to the DVD. I am using a drive that worked before, with the same stack of DVD+Rs that I used before.
Here is where it gets interesting: I can take the non-working burned DVD and copy it to a new ISO file. The new ISO file works fine with VLC. Obviously the data is getting properly copied from the source DVD, and it must be good on the burned DVD, but it won't play properly.
I set up a data project to burn a bunch of files onto a CD. I want to backup the files. I went to edit > plugins and selected "File Checksum" and set it to SHA1. Will Brasero now automatically (as part of the burning process) calculate and then compare the SHA1 for the file on the HDD with the file that is burned to the CD? If the two SHA1 comparisons do not match then Brasero will kick up a dialog window alerting me? Do I understand how this works correctly? as long as the plugin is enabled this is all automatic? Is the "Image Checksum" plugin only in use when I am burning an ISO?
I have been looking for a sound card for stereo classical music. The search has been frustrating. The best-known maker is well known for games and DVDs -- special effects in other words. One card works only on 32-bit distros, not 64-bit. Other cards used to work well with Linux, but stopped several years ago, and all interested parties consider it low priority. Others are priced outside my budget.
From specs and price, the best card for me would be the M-Audio Audiophile 2496, a stereo-only card with reportedly great musical performance. But it is one of those cards that stopped working around 2007, in Ubuntu and several other distros. In the forums it appears to be caused by an incompatibility between ALSA and Pulse Audio, and involves the initialization for the ICE1712 sound chip. So several other M-Audio cards, and cards from other makers, are affected as well. Comments in the Ubuntu forum trail off inconclusively. Some partial solutions have been found that work for some people, but not for all. Some reports say that a return to ALSA or even OSS works. This is discouraging, and I will not spend $100 knowing that a failure is likely.
But the best discussion appears in the Red Hat - Fedora forum for bug 499435. The authors of the ALSA and Pulse systems get into the discussion, and in the resulting ferment, one correspondent develops a workaround consisting of a large change to a conf file, and a couple of little changes elsewhere. The description of the change is followed by several messages reporting success with the card, finally. But please note that this was NOT for Ubuntu. You may find this discussion and the fix via Google by searching "m-audio 2496 red hat". It's right at the top.
The file requiring the big change is /usr/share/alsa/cards/ICE1712.conf
Looking into the same file in Ubuntu, I found that it contains most (not all) of the revision in Fedora. Perhaps the differences between the distros require the modification to be different. The change log for libasound2 (the package containing this file) has no discernable reference to this change, so I am left wondering about its source and validity.
Still, I am not about to spend $100 without some assurance that the money is not thrown away. So now, the question for which this entry was written: Is anyone out there successfully using an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound card with the current release of Ubuntu (10.04 or 9.10), using Pulse, ALSA, or OSS? Everybody posts tales of woe. I'm hoping to hear a few tales of success.
I burned a live c.d of debian 6 today, it works really great but there is no option to install it. I've done lots of installs off c.ds where it says " install" right at boot up, as on option. is there a way to install this?
I upgraded one of my Squeeze installations to Wheezy, but after selecting it in grub, nothing is displayed on screen: no CLI and no GUI. I tried Ctrl + Alt + F[1-7] and I got nothing. My laptop is Acer Aspire 7715Z. I am attributing this to module as there seems to be disk activity, but without a screen, I cannot be certain.
I'm running Debian Sid amd64 on a Vostro 1320. Both hibernate and suspend works fine using the kernel hooks, but after the system resumes from hibernation, it starts to get really sluggish. Iceweasel hits 100% CPU use, and I have to close it and open it again to get it working, and generally the system is just must slower than before the hibernation. I have to reboot to get performance back, and even doing swapoff and swapon does not solve the problem.
System is hanging during boot after a successful fresh install via netinstall disk. Never makes it to any GUI or prompt. However, it does still respond to CTRL-ALT-DEL (not completely frozen).Default debian installation with one exception - KDE checkbox was checked for installation. Everything else was default, with "use full disk with GRUB" option chosen.The boot process appears to hang during the service starts. It appears that the start job for "Create Static De..." is not actually ever completing. I don't know how to troubleshoot that any further than I have.
This is running on hardware, it is not a virtual machine. 480GB SSD, i7, 16GB of RAM, AMD R9 390 (I dunno if this is the problem, but it seems a likely culprit).There are no other disks attached. I have verified successful memtest completions (0 failures) and hard disk is intact and working fine (I have swapped for another disk, and the same thing happens as well).
My skill level with Linux is relatively low. I have proficiency using it and programming for it, but not much in the way of troubleshooting/ installation/ drivers.
Here is an album of "screenshots" (phone photos) of the boot sequence in debug: URL....I tried booting straight to console by removing "quiet" from boot options and changing to "text", but it does not alter the outcome in any discernible way.
I installed Debian Jessie (netinst, daily snapshot) on my Acer Aspire V5-123 laptop in the UEFI mode with the secure boot turned off. everything (network, hardware, partitioning, ...) went smoothly to the last step, but after removing the boot media (USB stick) and rebooting, the firmware could not find the boot device ! The only thing I can think of, is that the EFI boot is not set up properly by Debian installer, but I don't know how to fix it.
I installed Debian Squeeze-testing weekly build today, with CD1 alone. It took 1 Hour 38 minutes to install and configure on my Pentium 4 2.7 Ghz , 1GB ram HP machine. I have some trouble with the installation. Sometimes the desktop just freezes while moving Icons, or opening Xterm. I cannot use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, OR Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys. I have to physically reboot. Why doesn't Ctrl-Alt-Backspace work on GNOME? Is there a IRC chat for Debian Help and what applications does one use on GNOME for IRC chat?
I am running Debian Lenny and just upgraded via "apt-get upgrade" yesterday and all appears to be fine, except I noticed that when I ping something from a terminal window, it only displays successful pings and does not show the failed ones. When the pings fail, I have to "Ctrl-C" to see the results and cannot see them in real-time. It's not a huge problem, but I'd still like to be able to see immediate results even when pings fail.
Example is below:

i just installed 10.10 on my girls laptop (Acer Aspire 5735z) hoping it would fix the old problem i had with playing real dvd's. it didnt. it keeps saying "Could not read from Resource". when i try with VLC is say "Could not read from file". but if i put in a burned movie, it plays fine. i checked and it has libdvdcss2, libdvdnav4, and libdvdread4 installed. i get the same problems with my laptop (toshiba portege m400 tablet) which runs fedora 13.
Debian and debian based distros issue has a issue that has come to make it self aware to me when I was trying to burn a video on my hard drive with braseo and it won't let me burn more than 4.4 gigs to a dvd with 4.7 gigs of free space even a file that is over the 4.4 gig limit by a megabyte with windows i didn't have this problem. One more thing I have 16 gig flash drive and on debian and debian based distros i can only use 13.1 gigs of it but on fedora I can use all 16 gigs.
I'M trying to copy or rip a cd to a .iso file using Nero linux 4 and it just stops at 88%.I have also used brasero and the same thing happens when i right click in nautilus it only rips so far then stop's.Looking on Nero's websites the only dependencies that i don't have is Glibc 2.3.6.I have libglibc 2.24.1. and i can't find 2.3.6 to download.Does anyone know why i can't rip or copy the cd anyway i try to.Maybe it's a dependencies problem but i don't the what dependencies need to be installed.
I have not been able to write to DVDs since the install except for once when luck seemed to play more a part than anything else. Does anyone have a fix for this?Well, after letting it sit and sit and sit, it looks like it does write the data. But, it's writing about 1/2 of a DVD for just 2 500K files.
I installed K3B 2 today on opensuse 11.2, hoping that something may have been done to make it burn disks, I've had these problems since opensuse 11.0.
When I try to burn a cdrw disk it usually fails with the error that the cd drive doesn't like the disk, if I try and expensive disk I sometimes get the same error, but if it does burn successfully and I put the disk back in the drive all I've got is a blank disk which won't take a 2nd burn.
I've tried DVDRWs and as soon as I click burn K3B decides the blank disk needs formatting and this then fails and keeps failing nomatter what I do. If I choose the ignore option for the speed when formatting it seems to format the disk then it takes between 1 & 3 attempts to burn the dissk.
