OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Blank CDROM And DVDs No Longer Recognized

Mar 19, 2010

11.2, KDE4, 2.6.31.5-0.1-desktopx86_64 GNU/Linux, latest updates

Weird, but suddenly just recently my system stopped 'seeing' any blank media. I have burned all sorts till now without problems, from K3B, Lemonrip, Handbrake, growisoft on the CLI, etc. Some errant update, perhaps?

I have done some digging ... added my user to cdrom, added an entry in fstab (K3B didn't like it so I deleted it), wodim -scanbus tell me I have '1,0,0 100) 'Optiarc ' 'BD ROM BC-5500S ' '1.03' Removable CD-ROM' ...

It can, however, read written Cds and DVDs without problems.

Debian Multimedia :: Encrypted DVDs Are Not Recognized Upon Insertion

Jun 21, 2015

I have Debian Jessie installed. When I insert a non-encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, a pop-up menu appears asking me what I want to do (e.g. "Open with vlc media player, etc.).

When I insert an encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, no pop-up menu appears.

I am able to play the encrypted movie DVD in vlc, and libdvdcss2 is installed. So my question is not about playing the DVD but rather about the failure to automatically detect it.

This behaviour happens in Gnome, Mate, and XFCE. (KDE has a Plasma Device Notifier Widget that is able to detect the encrypted DVD).

My other computer with Debian Wheezy is able to automatically recognize the encrypted DVD.

Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the encrypted DVD:

Code: Select allJun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208964] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE
Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208972] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0]

Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208986] Info fld=0x400

[Code] ....

Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the non-encrypted DVD:

Code: Select allJun 21 14:55:39 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2226.518955] UDF-fs: INFO Mounting volume 'Check Please', timestamp 2009/06/02 17:43 (1e5c)

Whan I run the mount command after inserting the non-encrypted DVD the following line appears in the output:

Code: Select all/dev/sr0 on /media/daniel/Check Please type udf (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=77,iocharset=utf8,uhelper=udisks2)

Granted, this issue is not a major problem as I can start vlc and play the DVD. However, it might be useful to some new users to Linux to have the pop-up menu appear. Additionally, it would be interesting to learn why it works in Debian Wheezy and not in Debian Jessie.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod No Longer Recognized By RhythmBox

Jul 14, 2011

I've made some progress (at first, the ipod wasn't seen by the system at all). I've removed what appeared to be conflicting usb mounting packages and that has allowed the ipod to be recognized by the computer (i.e. the name of the ipod show up on the desktop with an ipod icon and i can manipulate files with nautilus. however, before i upgraded to lucid, rhythmbox would start automatically and I was able to manage the music through rhythmbox. now, since the upgrade, rhythmbox does not detect the presence of the ipod.

Software :: CDROM-drive Is Not Recognized By Ubuntu?

Apr 26, 2011

I recently did a fresh Maverick install on my old Medion laptop (MD 42200), and a problem occurred.

The problem is that the CDROM-drive is not recognized by Ubuntu. There is no icon on the desktop when I insert a disc, and I can̈́'t find it in either /media, /cdrom or /dev.

I can see it in the standard Disc Tool program, where it is listed as being located in /dev/sr0, and it is visible in a downloaded Device Manager.

What can I do to access my CDs?

Ubuntu :: Self-produced DVDs Not Recognized?

Feb 23, 2010

I am a fan of films that record with a DVD recorder with HD model Samsung.Wanting to pass on what I recorded on pc I had to burn movies on dvd rewritable, as the Samsung does not make me move movies on USB stick.Then I finalize the DVD with the DVD recorder that ever so I created a 4.7GB VIDEO_TS folder and G with related vob files inside.This dvd if you put them on the PC with Windows start and I can see the actual content of the file in Windows Explorer and then copy them to develop.If the computer starts with Ubuntu 9.04 I can only see them through mplayer, I have to say to open the DVD, but I can not get to see the content.Tells me that it is impossible to mount the dvd (permission problems), sees them empty to format, in short, with Ubuntu I can not have files for them to process.All this happens only with DVDs burned on my dvd recorder from the table.

Fedora :: CDs No Longer Mounting, But DVDs OK?

Jul 31, 2011

I tried mounting a new CD, but nothing happened. I tried again, with a CD I'd used before with the same results. I tried a DVD in the same drive and it mounted OK, so it's not hardware. (I haven't had time until now to report this.) The box is running F 14 and is fully updated. Below is the results from /var/log/messages saved from June 28:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Play DVDs - Multimedia RPMs Are Installed

Aug 9, 2011

Normally I find everything I need either in the documentation or forum, but it's been months, and this time I'm stumped. I'm posting the results of my latest tests, so I'm really sorry about the length of this post.

I can't play DVDs unless they've been burned by myself or a friend. I had no problems until around the beginning of April. I was running 11.2 on both my laptop and desktop. I think an update changed something. This was before 11.2 was officially retired a week or so later. I wanted to upgrade to 11.4 anyway, so I began with my laptop. During installation I wiped everything from my hard disk by creating new partitions and formatting them. After installation I installed the multimedia packages using one-click (opensuse-guide.org, not opensuse-community.org, although I did read what they said). I know one-click is not ideal, but I was curious. The result was that I still couldn't play DVDs.

I did a fresh installation, just to be on the safe side. This time I installed the packages according to Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide by caf4926. But I still couldn't play DVDs, so I went through the thread Check your multimedia problem in ten steps. Then I ran mmcheck (v2.35). I tried a few times, experimented, and in the end did another fresh install.

In the meantime, on my desktop, which still has 11.2 on it, I found the file which had been changed and changed it back, so I could play DVDs on it again. It was in /etc/udev/rules.d/, 70-persistent-cd.rules. This does not appear to be the problem in 11.4 on my laptop.

I have again installed the packages according to the multimedia installation guide, and done the ten-step check and run mmcheck and these are the results as they stand:

I couldn't find a package called mplayerplug-in. I used zypper to look for it.

I tried installing the totem packages in a previous installation, but they didn't make a difference, so I left them out this time.

I deinstalled my jdk, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference, except that I get an error notification everytime I want to use LibreOffice. And I need it, so I'm putting it back soon.

So, these are my packages:

And this is what happens when I try to play a DVD using Kaffeine (since I don't an error message except from Kaffeine, and I've forgotten where my logs are):

And then comes Read error from: Error reading from DVD over the GUI.

And nothing else happens... I get no feedback from smplayer whatsoever. It opens, trys to read the DVD, and sits there. Even on the console.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting To CDROM Makes Blank Screen?

Jan 19, 2011

When I start my system on the Ubuntu 10.10 CDROM I get a tiny icon at the bottom, then the screen shuts off due to no signal. So I cannot run the Live CDROM. Relevant here is that Debian CDROM runs just fine. (Lenny installs and runs good, but squeeze does not) Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu) gets me a pretty graphical welcome screen, then the monitor shuts off just like Ubuntu and Kubuntu.WinXP installed and runs without a hitch.

My system: Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G with 4Gb ram, 750 Gb SATA HDD, Nvidia Quadro video card.I have gone through the BIOS settings looking for clues:SATA AHCI mode is set to IDE (versus AHCI)SATA port 0-3 native mode set to enabled (versus disabled which would be legacy IDE mode)Azalia codec set to auto (verus disabled)

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Not Recognizing Blank DVDs

Aug 18, 2011

I'm trying burn an ISO to a DVD+R. but I cannot seem to get it recognized. The drive will read a CD-R that I have, but not the DVD. I have found quite a few threads about this, but none had any working solutions. Does anyone know what I could do? Could it be because the bottom of the disc is blue rather than silver?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Kaffeine And KsCD Won't Play CDs Or DVDs

Nov 26, 2009

I have recently installed 11.2. I am having some sound woes. Vlc plays CDs and DVDs but Kaffeine won't. KsCD won't play CDs. When I try to use Kaffeine to play a CD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]
Opening kaffeine in the terminal gives:
user@linux-kxg1:~> kaffeine
user@linux-kxg1:~> CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found
CDROMREADTOCHDR: No medium found

When I try to use Kaffeine to play a DVD I get:

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]

Do I have to add anything to /etc/fstab? /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd are pointing to /dev/sr0, but these apps are not seeing the device.

General :: Splitting Large Directory Over Multiple Blank DVDs?

May 19, 2010

I am currently trying to copy a directory of roughly 400GBs to dvd, have gotten myself stuck. I tried to tar and then split; however, I don't have enough room on my hard-drive to make a compressed tar and split it up and then burn to disk, so I need a way to tar the and compress the directory, split it, and burn to disk every 4.3GBs.

I went ahead and installed DAR as an alternative, as I hear it is designed for this type of task, but I can't figure out which way is heads or tails.

my OS is the newest version of ubuntu 10.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: SLED11 - Restricted Format Message For DVDs

Jun 27, 2009

I have my original test version of sled11 which I installed when it was first released. I managed to install the required files for multimedia formats and everything works fine. The system has updated as updates have been released via the evaluation update code quite happily. I liked it and decided to get a sled11 license and install on my main workstation. About a month has passed since the test install and my fresh licensed install and I accepted all the updates on install. When I install the multimedia apps, only kaffeine will read multimedia dvds. Nautilus, brasero and totem say it is a restricted format and refuse to read it. What to look for?

Debian :: Scanner No Longer Recognized After Update

Nov 30, 2015

I am running Wheezy 7.9 32 bit, with the kernel Linux 3.2.0-4-686-pae, and Gnome 3.4.2 on an Intel Pentium CPU G3420 @ 3.2 GHz. I installed a new printer in August, an HP Officejet 7612 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier, and it worked perfectly as both a printer and a scanner first time, despite not being listed on the supported list in SANE. Two weeks ago, I got a general software update notification, and did the update. Now the scanner is not recognised. The printer still works fine as a printer, but when using Simple-scan, I get the error message "No scanners detected. Please check your scanner is connected and powered on". I have had a look round on Google, and all the suggestions made do not work.

I tried the suggestion to add myself to the scanner users list on my PC which made no difference (even though the scanner previously worked without my being added to the scanner users list).

I have deleted the printer and re-installed it using CUPS, but that still has no effect. I tried re-installing HPLIP also to no avail, and I have now lost the toolbox on the drop down menu under <Applications> <Accessories> <HP Toolbox>, as when I click on it, nothing happens.

It would seem that something in the update has messed up Simple-scan. Looking at the dpkg log (is this the right thing to look at?) for the date of the update, I cannot find anything which directly involved SANE, so I think that it might be something else which has affected SANE. How I can find out which update did the damage? I don't normally do anything except accept recommended updates, so I am a bit lost as to what to do.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: CD/DVD Player Not Recognized?

May 1, 2010

I've been trying to play audio CDs in the CD/DVD drive on my machine but I can't get ANY CD Player software to recognize the drive. However, data CDs are read just fine. If I want to play a CD, I have to use the burner drive which is readily seen by all the audio CD software (KsCD, Kaffeine, etc.). I've added myself to the audio, video and cdrom groups but to no avail (I kinda knew it was fruitless to begin with but tried it anyway). I'm running 11.2, 64-bit mode and aside from this minor (but maddening) glitch, I've been very impressed with the distro. I don't want to use the burner for spinnin' platters.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Monitor Not Recognized - Wrong Resolution

Jun 15, 2010

I have problem with resolution (@gnom desktop). In Yast --> videocard & monitor is all right. There is correct resolution 1366x768 (WXGA). Also the videocard ( I don't have really one, only chipset "Intel Mobile GM45" ) is correct recognized. But Monitor isn't recognized, and I don't know which one I have (It's notebook from acer).

Nevertheless if I go direct in monitor preferences (at the bottom the monitor with a ruler symbol) the resolution is set to 800x600 and I can only change to 640x480. The monitor is as 15" recognized (I have 15.4", even a bit more broadly - 1366x768) and now I don't know what to do. All symbols, all programs, everything is huge! How is it possible to configure the correct one resolution?

Slackware :: Eth0 No Longer Recognized After Upgrade And ASUS Mobo Replace In -current

Jan 27, 2010

My office has a box which is, by necessity, dual-boot WinXP/Slack. The Slackware I'm running there is -current, all great and fine. Until now... It turned out that my mobo, an ASUS P5KPL-CM, died after a power surge. Since the XP needs software activation, we replaced it for an exact copy of the mobo. After the change the box worked fine in XP, and I was able to connect to the network via the Ethernet interface. BTW, the Slackware version is Slackware-current, updated as of the Jan 9 update (after that I was no longer able to connect to the Net with Slack). However, in Slackware there was a problem: eth0 was no longer recognized. Using /sbin/ifconfig only listed the lo (loopback) interface. The lspci output is:

Code:

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller (rev b0)
