As the title says, I am currently unable to watch DVDs or listen to audio CDs on my system - they simply do not load. Same goes for burning.
The system can load data CD-Rom's but even this is sluggish.
All of these functions have worked fine for me in the past and I'm not sure what changed between then and now. I'm pretty sure that my CD/DVD drive itself is fine, and that it's a system problem somewhere within Ubuntu.
Here is my problem using K3B when writing Multi-session Project:
"Writing CD-R Using Wodim 1.1.10. Starting TAO to writing at 48x speed performing Optimum Power calibratpo;;p;9;n starting disk write mkisofs crashed cdrecord has no permission to open the device You may use K3bsetup to solve this problem"
I have the same problem with the other cd-burner programs, such as: Brasero Disk Burner, Gnome Baker CD/DVD Writer, xfBurn, and CD/DVD Creator. Why all the programs are malfunctioning since yesterday? I un-installed some of them, re-started the pc, but the problem continues...
I'm using Brasero to burn DVDs and I'm burning at 4x speed (the DVDs and the DVD burner both support 16x max). The problem is that while burning, the speed is too low and it jumps around between 1.5x and 2.4x. This seems weird to me.shouldn't the burn process fail if it drops below 4x or if the speed is as unsteady as it is? But the DVDs seem to turn out fine anyway.
Since updating to Lucid I have not been able to properly burn DVDs and CDs. I have looked everywhere for a solution to this and have been able to get some functionality but not full functionality. I am using Brasero as I find it nice and easy to use. I read somewhere to get libburn4. Since I did that, I managed to Burn an Audio CD, and today I have managed to Burn an ISO of Ubuntu 10.04, so that is at least some function back.
I cannot burn Data CDs or DVDs. I have a few .avi files I wanted to burn on a Data Disc as burning as a movie to DVD means that I would have to waste loads of discs. I can't seem to burn any Data DVDs. To check that this wasn't just a dodgey blank disk I have tried burning data CDs using lots of albums on the CD. Still no luck. What seems to happen is that it generates a checksum then the box with estimated time remaining, write speed and progress comes up. It hangs for a minute then spits the disk out.
I'm sick of screwing around trying to script a clean solution to burn multiple files and folders to CDs and DVDs with wodim, growisofs and genisoimage.I'm looking for a high level command line program that uses sensible defaults and takes arguments something like this:[program-name] [cd|dvd] /path/to/dir1/ /path/to/dir2/ /path/to/file ...It should then do all the low level copying and ISO generation transparently and just burn the damn disk!Does anyone have any suggestions? I've looked at several programs but it seems there are too many choices to trawl through and not enough information about them online.
Applied the Lucid Lynx 10.04 over the weekend. Since then - I am unable to burn DVDs, although I can successfully read DVD's. Everything worked fine before the upgrade. Under Lucid Lynx I am able to burn CD's (both data files and .ISO) so it isn't the hardware.
I have tried Brasero and k3b as burners - they issue messages that the burner doesn't like the medium, which is standard DVD-R. Bear in mind that I could burn similar DVDs *before* the upgrade...
Any help or suggestions on how to fix this please?
I never had this problem with mint 8 but now I run Ubuntu 9.10 and I have installed all the non-free codecs and non-restricted packages I could find, but still can't play them, I am no expert in the command line, but have been using linux distros for a few years
Back in the DOS days (yes I am dating myself) there was a backup command that would back the selected files across a series of floppy disks. Is there such a command in Karmic to backup across multiple DVDs?
I would like to do some backups of my data and other important files but I have more than 4 GB of information. I have seen posts on ways to write a compressed file but that still stores it on the HDD and I would like the files on DVDs in case the HDD crashes.
Is there anything like burning rom from nero or roxio cd/dvd copier. Do you know of any dvd copying program? like without making the image and then burning with just one process just copy the disc sorta program like roxio dvd copier? I wanted to make copies of movies I made a dvd of but aside from image burn which is a hassle to make the image first. is there something for burning on the fly or dvd/cd copying? infrarecorder and cdburnerxp do not work for me at all.
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 am helping a friend switch to Ubuntu Linux 10.10. She used Windows Vista to copy her own DVD's using DVD43 [URL] to remove copy protection and 1Click DVD Copy to burn them. She would like to do the same on Ubuntu. Can some one recommend alternative software for Linux that can do the same thing as what she did on Windows?
Previously I have Centos 5.3 installed. Eventually I upgraded the systems to Centos 5.4 Now is it possible to generate an ISO and burn into a DVD to make a new copy of Centos 5.4 installation disk? This is far better than downloading.
What I want to do is force my DVD burner to use full writing power on the entire surface of a DVD. This should be able to invisibly damage the contained data, and should work on CDs, DVDs and BRDs too (in theory). I don't want to write data over it, so it's not a matter of having a RW disc or a R one. The result I want to obtain is simply an unreadable disc that does not look damaged. Do you know if there's a program able to ignore a disc being already full and perform this task?
i am looking for a linux program to burn some avi files i have to be able to watch them through my dvd player onto my t.v. i have tried devede and it works but the files i used were iso files and i am not sure it would work with a avi filese?
I downloaded the Fedora Live USB creator and the program consistently fails to load properly onto the flash drive. I have also downloaded the DVD iso program from this site and get only errors when trying to boot with an ISO burner? I am attempting to load the program on Sun Virtual Box, which is like VMare's Workstation, and the prompt consistently reads error when attempting to install. Also the progress bar on the Live USB loader never stops even after it the cmd prompt says it is complete.
Old habits die hard...I wanted to run a DOS program and the most expedient way was to copy it to a bootable floppy. Problem one, floppy isn't mounted by default. Ok, so I mounted it, then attempted the copy. The copy failed almost immediately with an error message. I rebooted into ubuntu, did the same thing, and it worked.
