OpenSUSE :: Burn DVDs But Cannot Mount Them?

Feb 9, 2010

I am able to burn DVDs with either Brasero or k3b, but opensuse then cannot mount them .

Those DVDs do contain the burned data since I can see it and read it on a Mac...

On openSUSE, I get the following error when inserting the DVD :

I added my user to 'disk' and 'cdrom' groups, but to no avail.

Here's the output from dmesg :

[275598.245976] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0
[275598.246011] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 1

Ubuntu :: Can't Load - Burn CDs And DVDs / Fix It?

Aug 11, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Suddenly PC Cannot Burn CDs Or DVDs

Mar 27, 2011

Here is my problem using K3B when writing Multi-session Project:

Ubuntu :: DVDs Burn At Lower Speed Than Specified With Brasero

Jan 12, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Properly Burn CDs And DVDs After Lucid Update

Jun 1, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid System Upgrade : Now Unable To Burn DVDs / Enable It?

May 3, 2010

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?

Debian :: Debian Squeeze - How To Burn CD/DVDs

Mar 23, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Last Few Burned DVDs Won't Mount?

Jul 30, 2010

I've been backing up some data recently because I'm planning to upgrade to 10.04. It had been going well until today. I burned a couple DVDs, tested them, and they were fine. I burned another one, tested it, and it wouldn't mount. Got the following: "Unable to mount media. There is probably no media in the drive." (Was using K3b).

I tried the same one again, this time using GnomeBaker. Seemed to burn alright, but once again would not mount when I tested it. So, I thought maybe it's just this one particular folder. I tried to burn a DVD with completely different data. Same thing, seemed to burn OK, but again it will not mount.

I went back and re-tested the DVDs that worked OK earlier today, and these ones are still mounting. Any ideas? Did my burner suddenly go bad? Or does someone know of any other possibilities that hopefully could be fixed? -using Verbatim 16x DVD-Rs (burned on 8x)-Lite-On SHW-160P6S

-Ubuntu 8.10
-755 MB RAM
-Intel Xeon CPU 1.70GHz
-used no multisession (or finalized in Gnomebaker)
-used linux+windows filesystem

-I was burning mostly video files (.avi, a couple of .wmv, couple of text files, subfolders with other .avi, etc.)--basically the same type of data whether they could mount or not.

Hardware :: Some CDs / DVDs Do Not Automatically Mount

Jun 5, 2010

I have checked out 'similar threads' to no avail. I am using Mandriva 2010 on /dev/sda6. I have two Pioneer CD/DVD drives. Some data CDs/DVDs automatically mount. Some do not show up in Dolphin's 'Places'. I tested many. Age of disk, brand name and whether pen parked gave no significant correlation. Using PCLinuxOS 2010 (live disk) created the same problem - not altogether surprising. But using Ubuntu 9.04 (live disk) created no problem.

Booting with slightly different kernel versions solved nothing. Using Windows XP or Mandriva 2009.1, both on other partitions, created no problem but when I tried Ubuntu 10.04 (live disk) I had 'no signal'. I have just put in a new Radeon (later than HD 2000) video card (fglrx) so I wondered if Ubuntu does not like it but this issue is unimportant - if Mandriva 2010 can be tamed. What did correlate was that both drives either recognised or both ignored any particular disk. Manual mounting as root works okay but my wife is not comfortable with the CLI.

The fstab file is below:
# Entry for /dev/sda6 :
UUID=14353eb6-82ff-45cc-ae64-8eed13800b46 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/sr1 /media/cdrom1 auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
# Entry for /dev/sda5 :
UUID=07e9f3ee-d92e-4696-b762-03a07ed102d2 swap swap defaults 0 0

I checked but could not positively identify this issue as a known bug in Mandriva 2010.

Ubuntu :: Randomly: No Audio - Can't Mount USB Flash/DVDs - Can't Shutdown

May 10, 2010

I have just installed Lucid i386 on an intel Core2Duo. Everything seems to be OK but about a third of the times I boot the system the following happen:

1) aplay -l reports no soundcards found and therefore I have no sound whatsoever

2) I cannot mount any USB Flash drives or DVD discs and I keep getting "Not authorized" error messages plugging them in.

3) The system won't reboot/shutdown by the gnome applet. Instead, it will drop back to the login screen asking my login. Furthermore, it won't even shutdown from there! Only a poweroff or reboot from command line can work.

4) The gnome applet "Indicator applet session" only shows "Log out, Restart, Shutdown". Suspend and Hibernate options are missing.

Furthermore, it seems that I am the only one who has these issues. My sound card is an onboard HDA Intel although this seems to be that something else dies taking some major subsystems down with it. Any ideas?

/proc/asound/cards shows:

0 [NVidia ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
HDA NVidia at 0xfe028000 irq 23
but: aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

OpenSUSE Install :: Where Are Installation CDs (not DVDs) For 11.3

Dec 15, 2010

I've been a SuSE user since 6.3 days. I just built 2 more old PCs to learn DRBD, and they only have CD drives (not DVDs). To my chagrin I just found out that there are no 11.3 install CDs? These old computers can't boot from USB either so I can't stick the DVD on a USB drive. Or am I just missing the installation CDs somewhere? I did some searching on the download site and in these forums but came up empty.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Automount UDF-Based DVDs In 11.3?

Sep 8, 2010

Once I insert a UDF-based DVD, such as a movie or Windows 7 OS install DVD, the disc will not automount in the GNOME desktop. As a result, Nautilus and other gnome programs like Brasero, cannot read the disk.

However, KDE-based apps like k3b and k9copy are perfectly able to detect a DVD with the UDF filesystem for burning or extracting data. The disc drive is a Plextor PX-716SA SATA-based model. The problem seems to be endemic to openSUSE 11.3, as UDF-based DVDs automount perfectly fine in Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows Vista on the same computer. In fact, these DVDs had no problems automounting in openSUSE 11.2 prior to performing a clean install of 11.3. Manually mounting such a DVD does work, using a command such as:

sudo mount -t udf /dev/sr0 /mnt -o ro,session=0,lastblock=1 The DVD movie can be accessed from VLC media player and mplayer, but nevertheless, gnome apps like brasero cannot be used. Why is this happening?

I searched for solutions on these and other forums and I came across these posts here, and here. The solutions proposed therein did not work, including modifying auto.misc and fstab. In another thread on these forums, modifying fstab for removable media was discouraged in versions 11.2 and 11.3.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Data CD/DVDs Do Not Automount?

Feb 6, 2011

Running 11.3, KDE 4.4.Have searched all over hell on the Internet, no solution found.When I insert a data CD or data DVD created with K3B sometime in the past, the Device Notifier pops up with NO description of the device plugged in. After it goes away, I can hover over it and it will say the name of the device which is the volume label of the backup CD or DVD.However, when I go to Konqueror, there is nothing showing under /media.If I run Dolphin and view the Places menu, the CD shows up there, I can double click on it and open it.

In Device Notifier Settings, under Removable Devices, I have Enable Automatic Mounting of Removable Media checked, as well as Only Automatically Mount Removable Media That Has Been Manually Mounted Before, and Automatically Mount Removable Media When Attached.The CD inserted does appear in the Attached Devices list in the Removable Devices.If I put a CD in and check Konqueror, it does not show under /Media. If I then load Dolphin, it shows in the Places menu and under /Media. THEN if I go back to Konqueror, without doing anything else, it will THEN show up in /Media.If I then close Dolphin and eject the CD/DVD, it disappears from /Media as expected. If I then reinsert the DVD into the drive, without opening Dolphin, it will re-appear in Konqueror under /Media as it should.Why isn't this working properly in Konqueror? It's a massive annoyance.There is zero documentation for Device Notifier available and especially for setting up Device Settings.At one point, I thought that "Only Automatically Mount Removable Media That Has Been Manually Mounted Before" might be the problem, so I unchecked it. But it does appear to be the problem.

I don't know why KDE 4.4 can't do what KDE 3.5 did - just automatically mount CDs/DVDs and USB devices without a lot of rigmarole and undocumented settings and with a simple selection of what you want to do with the mounted device (which I usually just ignore, select nothing, and go look at the inserted device with Konqueror). This was simple and worked. Now it's a nightmare and I see from browsing the forums that a lot of people have had problems with automounting.

OpenSUSE Install :: French And DVDs Without Using Minimally Internet?

Mar 3, 2010

I practice a little linux but I am just beginning. I have at work an old Dell PowerEdge 1750 on which there is no DVD player but only one CD. I would like to install opensuse 11.2 on it. I want at any price for the facility, minimize the use of the Internet in order not to overload the bandwidth of the job which is intended primarily for other things. The bios of the server does not boot from USB ports (the solution of a key or a USB bootable disk is not possible). - I could install from the live CD and then via internet download software that I miss. I did the first part of this but I find myself with opensuse in English, which is not the intention. I then tried to Frenchify but I can not do it properly. - I told myself then that I might start trying from a net install cd of opensuse, but I can not indicate which parameter to tell him to pick up the DVD iso image on a opensuse USB hard drive. - I might be as always from the net install tell it to fetch the files on a local or network drive on a local network resource, but I do not know how.

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

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Burn CD-RW In K3b?

Dec 14, 2008

I'm unable to burn CD-RW in K3b (error message "cdrecord has no permission to open the device"). Apparently, this is a wide-spread problem and there are a lot of posts on the internet that deal with it, but none of the advice I've found has worked so far.

I've tried the following:

(1) Updated K3b to the most recent version.

(2) Checked the device name of my CD burner (= sr0), and made sure I have access to it (sr0 is assigned to the group "drive", and I've added myself to this group, and also to "cdrom", just to be sure).

(3) Checked whether I have access to the applications /usr/bin/cdrecord, /usr/bin/wodim, and /usr/bin/cdrdao. Set the permissions to 775 (rwxrwxrx) and the ownership/group ownership to root/disk.

OpenSUSE :: Burn A Data DVD With K3b?

Apr 19, 2010

When I try to burn a data DVD with k3b it errors out telling me...

Unable to find the following files: /home/ion/.kde4/share/apps/RecentDocuments/Mon oncle d'Am+�rique (Resnais, 1980).srt.desktop

...but when I invoke (as root)...

# ls -al home/ion/.kde4/share/apps/RecentDocuments retruns...

ls: cannot access home/ion/.kde4/share/apps/RecentDocuments: No such file or directory

So is k3b lying or ls?

Before you ask, fsck gave no errors. But Find files/Folders from the Application Launcher menu finds and lists it in the RecentDocuments directory as above, then tells me it is "Inaccessible". Delete does not work from GUI or CLI.

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?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Blank CDROM And DVDs No Longer Recognized

Mar 19, 2010

11.2, KDE4, 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.

OpenSUSE :: K3B Audio CD Burn Fails

Jan 7, 2009

I recently installed OpenSuse 11.1 (i586) on a new laptop (HP 6710b) all has been going well, until I tried to burn audio CDs with K3B using .wav files in a directory in the format 01.wav 02.wav 03.wav etc. To burn the audio CDs I have been running K3B as root to avoid any potential permission issues. I now have a stack of cd 'coasters' with only one lucky success using the command line, which when the exact command was repeated failed again. I have successfully burnt 2 data DVDs using K3B, one as root the second as user, both without problem - so maybe it is not a permissions problem?

I am using K3b 1.0.5 in KDE 4.1.3. (it runs under KDE3) I have not been able to run k3bsetup � it is not part of the installation. However permissions appear correctly set-up � I also added the appropriate users to the group �disk�.

/dev/cdrom lrw-rw----root disk (just points to /dev/sr0)
/dev/sr0 -rw-rw---- root disk
/usr/bin/cdrecord lrwxr-xr-x root root (just points to /usr/bin/wodim)
/usr/bin/wodim-rwxr-xr-xroot root

K3b uses the executables in /usr/bin/x11/ which are just the same. I have not put suid on anything. I tried running cdrecord as a user, however the burn failed.I checked the .wav files and they play fine in kaffeine. I am using the same brand of blank CDs as the DVDs.I have not had the occasion to try a data CD � I've run out of blank disks for the moment.

K3b detects my DVD/CD burner as:

The system device is /dev/sr0
interfaceGeneric SCSI
Vendor HL-DT-ST
DescriptionDVDRAM GSA-T40L

I tried burning audio CDs in both TAO and DAO mode, neither with success.

Here is an example shortened K3b output:

scsidev: '/dev/sr0'
devname: '/dev/sr0'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
