Software :: Burning DVD+RW With K3b On Slackware 13
Apr 19, 2010
I'm confronted with a problem to which I cannot seem to find an answer. I'm trying to burn a DVD+RW and it continuously fails, whatever options I use. I've tried to burn an iso image, extracted the files from the image and tried burning to a 'new' k3b project, but all with the same result. Regular CD and DVD (not RW) works like a charm. This is the first try using DVD+RW. Below is the log from k3b session.
I've got following problem: need to burn files which are spread through several directories, have names longer that 32 chars, and the chars like " " (space) nad other strange are allowed in the names of files. The file sizes are about 300 MB up to 1.5 GB (perhaps more). I want to burn .iso images (not on fly). I'm not using any graphical interface, so programs like k3b are not allowed.
I don't have support for burning MP3's in K3b on Fedora 13. K3b is, for me the one and only best burn in tool and I use it exclusively for backuups to CD's, DVD's, saving music, etc. Various blogs say to go to Livna and install k3b-extras-nonfree but when I tried that, k3b-extras-nonfree was not found.
I am a Fedora user and have been using tovid to burn dvds. I would like to try other options. K3B has always been a handy tool for DVD related tasks.I have a bunch of mpg files. I opened a new video DVD project and copied the mpg files into the video_ts folder. When I burn, I got a message "the project does not contain all the necessary DVD files".Is this the right way to go about burning a DVD with K3B? Does K3B look after the DVD structure (ie. AUDIO_TS & VIDEO_TS) or do I need to create the DVD structure first?
My first post and am very new to Linux OS. I already have Win7. Now i want to try Ubuntu. So, i downloaded "ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso.torrent" from the Ubuntu site. When i tried to write the ISO file to the CD using Win7 burner first CD and also using Nero in the second CD.. Both the CD are not working.. It throwed some error while writing.. Am doing something wrong.. i am downloading the Ubuntu again using the torrent.
I have tried burning media files as data into a DVD (-R). Failed every time. It simulates the burn, and when it starts burning it sometimes ejects the media and at other times just says that it cannot eject the DVD and that it has to be done manually. After the DVD is ejected it errors out.Attaching the log file.
Today I want to install Ubuntu on a friends laptop. I finally convinced him to leave Windows and move on to Ubuntu. Ironically this has brought me into problems. I have downloaded the ubuntu-10.10-dvd-i386.iso and ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso to make a bootable cd/dvd to install Ubuntu. Now both K3b and Brasero give me problems burning one of the .iso files. I already waste some CDr and DVDr. I will share some logfiles for your info;
It started when I woke up to find that the Unity dock was misbehaving -- none of the icons were appearing, though there was something at the top that looked like a couple of the "flattened" icons that are usually at the bottom. I can't remember what I did in the terminal or gnome-system-monitor to try and fix this, but I think it was unity --reset. (Should've been --replace, I know that now. Unless I was barking up the wrong tree altogether) The result was that the dock disappeared altogether along with the tops of all windows, much as has happened in the past when metacity crashed. But now alt-f2 wasn't working, and while I had a terminal open (and in front of all the other windows), I couldn't type anything into it. (I could, however, right-click and start a new terminal, which didn't work either.)
So then I switched to tty1-6. Unfortunately, I don't know how to use those to start things in tty7, only kill processes. I did some Googling and tried sudo service gdm restart. This, according to ps, ended most of the processes I had open, and now tty7 is stuck on a text screen that says "Ubuntu 11.04" at the top and "* Checking battery state... [ OK ]" at the bottom and has a blinking cursor at the bottom right. Ctrl-Alt-F8 opens a GUI login screen that lists me as "Currently logged in."I'm completely lost here. Is there anything I can do to fix tty7? Is there even anything I should bother doing now but rebooting?
I've tried writing music files such as .mp3, .wma, and .wav and play them in my car, but none of them work, and when I put the CD in my computer again, none of the music files are there!I've used Brasero and K3B to burn them, as well as the default program that just opens up the cd folder, asks you to copy the files and then gives an option to burn them, and I've looked at past threads but none of them seem to have the same problem as me (or else the suggestions don't help at all).
Here is my stupid question of the week. I downloaded an ISO image from SuseStudio and it came as a tar.gz and untarred it is a image.raw. How can I create an ISO image with from that format. SoRAW ----> ISO ---> to cdrom or DVD
I have tried brasero, nero-linux and k3b to burn (and encode) mp3 files onto a cdrom. Every program burns the cd, but the files are converted to wav format instead of cda. I can only assume that I am missing a lib file or some codec. I am using ubuntu 10.10 and I have enabled everything I can think of, including adding the repositories for "super-os" and every restricted extra I can come up with. I can play cd's, dvd's etc. I can burn dvd's, but audio cd's are a no-go.
I was burning a disc with K3b and it was from an ISO; Burn and verify. Everything went successful, but when I put in my 2nd DVD to burn, K3b doesn't recognize it. On top of that when I right click on the icon of a Blank DVD on my desktop, it doesn't have the Eject Volume option there anymore. Does anybody know what could be going on here? why would my Fedora (11) stop burning and ejecting discs all of a sudden?
also, I tried this with multiple DVDs/drives to see if they were bad DVDs/drives and it's all the same result. Also, since I didn't have the eject option on my desktop I had to eject it with K3b from within the program. There's still a problem though.
edit: Some reason K3b is recognising discs again and is burning again. I guess the restart did it and I don't know why it was acting funny.
I'm trying to burn an ISO file with Brasero. It always fails when finalizing.The ISO checksum is ok. The same ISO file is successfully burned in WinXP with CDBurnerXP on the same hardware. So the problem is neither the ISO file nor the hardware.What is wrong with my setup?
I'M using F14 x86_64 and my problem is suspending. When I closed my laptop lid its going black screen and my hdd led is lighting I think my hdd is working hard and I think my cpu is working hard too so fan is working fast and my notebok is going hot.Any key is working on black screen. I must shut down hard .y computer has i5 and ati 5650. WHen I was using Mint 10, it has going sleep well
K3B burning data and ISO files. Disc Media:Datawrite DVD & CD Discs
Old Box OS: WinXP Pro SP3 32bit Burning Software:Nero 220.127.116.11 Mobo:Asrock P4V88+ Processor:AMD AthlonXP 2800+ Single Core CPU Memory:2GB DDR Optical Drive:NEC DVD RW ND-4550A (2x, 4x & 8x write speeds) [Code].....
My Current / Old box (WinXP)can burn 2.9GB of data over a LAN from a mapped drive using Nero in 7 minutes and maintain file & directory names as they are complete with upper and lower characters, spaces between words and special characters without shortening file / directory names out of the box. My new box (SuSE 11.2) was initially incapable of burning anything, ?Access Denied? I added the user to the cdrom group this allowed the burning of data but the process changed file and directory names. It changed all letters to capitols, replaced blank spaces and special characters with underscores. I still can?t burn ISO files, ?Access Denied?. The time it took to burn the 2.9GB of data on the hard drive of the SuSE install was sort of acceptable but a full 5 to 6 minutes longer and I was forced to shorten file names too.
I changed a setting to allow the full ascii character set hoping this would preserve file and directory names as they are during the burn process. I changed a setting to allow long file names too. I now have another problem, on starting the burn process and after a minute'sh K3B displayed the fact that it was going to take over 1 ? hours to finish! Yikes. After an hour it was going to take a further 2hrs and 10mins. This didn't include read varify. I aborted the burn process, this can?t be correct. I placed the LG drive in my old box, burn process took a second or two less than 7mins to complete using the same data over the same LAN. I've tested the drive for hardware errors, the drive is perfect. Am i missing something, failing to do something or doing things wrong. Is the optical drive or some other component incompatible in some way.
I'll be burning many gigabytes of data on a daily basis and i'm hoping to be able to burn a full DVD disc of mixed data types in less than 10mins whilst preserving the full ascii character set, file & directory names inc special characters and blank spaces. I still need to resolve my "access denied" problem when trying to burn ISO files too.
I was able to burn a DVD-RW with K3B (after changing "sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/wodim") but when I try to burn to a CD-R it fails after the opc check. I tried changing the write-speed to 8X (since that's the max for this CD-R) but it still fails.
i've decided that i wanna learn a bit of linux, and so i tried to install suse... i've come to have a lot of problems:i downloaded both the KDE Live CD and the DVD (4++ gb), both 64 bit.i dunno about the software there, but should i get the 32 bit version becouse is more likely they works or the 64 bit is fine?
what i'd like to do is overwrite my windows 7 (basically get rid of it, only way for me to use linux).i tried installing from Live CD (burned) but it does not seems to work, tried the USB thing but still something is wrong, is like is not recognized... i can't burn 4++ gb so i was wondering if there is a way to use the ISO w/o burning it... ofc i tried but in the boot menu it asks for a CD so nothing to do.
Today i tried to burn a dvd but i failed. When i was adding the folders, brasero poped up a message saying that it need to rename some files to make them windows compatible,i accepted the change and proceed. Everything was looking good, but qhen it tried to burn, brasero said it cannot burn the image and failed. Asked if i want to save the log file and i did it, but it has no info!
I tried diferent combinations to burn the dvd (removing the files that need to be renamed, even i tried to burn the files to a iso image) and alwas fail exactly with te same error in the same step.I instaled the gstreamer packages from packman and all looks good.Any idea whats going on? Also, if someone has the same problem, maybe it's a bug in brasero that needs to be reported: if so, how can i get usefull info to report it?
