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.

Fedora Installation :: 10 Install - Burned Dvds Would Not Boot

Jan 30, 2009

I'm trying to install fedora 10 via dvd without a lot of success. i'm doing this on an old hp 8765c computer. it has a sansung sd-612 dvd-rom player. the dvd's i burned would not boot. so, i checked the dvd. sha1sum. check verify dvd when burned. check boot on system where the dvd burned. check dvd verify when bootedc check ok, lets check the dvd player. From i can see on the web, this player had issues about not playing dvds. some relate to driver issue when upgrading me to xp. and, some refer to updating firmware. lots of post about the dvd player not playing dvds. None with a succinct solution.

Well, if anyone has a solution for updating the firmware for a samsung sd-623 dvd player, it would be helpful. For now, installing from the internal dvd player isn't going to work for hardware reasons. Plan B lets try installing from the dvd using a network attached dvd server. sing the net install cd. use linux askmethod, use url to point to the dvd. the image in retreived, select all the defautl options, format the drive, does the package selection, does the package dependencies, but errors on the retriving packages. puts up the download retry message. then show message about not being able to retreive the authcong-gkt... rpm. just let the net install go. i get to the nic configuration, it errors out. probably network manager issue about trying to set a static ip address.........

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 :

Code:

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...

Ubuntu Installation :: Burned DVD Of Version 9 Not Recognized

Jul 11, 2010

I've been trying for days now to install Ubuntu on a Dell Dimension 5100 desktop. It's got a 2ghz processor, ATI graphics card and 512 ram. It has a DVD drive that it boots from. Here's the problem. I have Ubuntu 10 burned on a regular CD and I have Ubuntu 9.1 burned on a DVD. I can boot this Dell up using the CD. It goes through the regular install, gets to 23% then tells me that it can't recognize the CD/DVD device or the hard drive. I've re-seated cables, I know the hardware is all good, this is my media computer that Ive had attached to my TV now for a year. It was running fine 3 days ago before I got the great idea to convert it to Linux.

Now...once that fails I try to put in the burned DVD of version 9. Again the computer boots, I tell it to boot from the DVD...but this time the computer acts as if that drive doesn't even exist. It simply can't find the DVD drive anymore once I put a DVD into it. Is this a problem with the basic reading?? It'll read a CD but not a DVD. If I let it boot all the way to the live Ubuntu CD, the DVD drive is recognized just fine, reads DVDs, etc. Is there another solution, something I should be trying? I need this comp on Ubuntu. I've already converted all other systems in my house and this POS is the only abomination still using windows.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVD ISO Plays, But Burned DVD Is Jerky?

Oct 15, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Checking Md5sum Of A Burned CD?

Dec 26, 2010

I checked the md5sum of the iso using winMd5Sum utility, it is OK.

To check the CD, right clicked the md5sum file in it, send to winmd5sum, and then copied the corresponding hash from the ubuntuhashes page into the bottom text box, and compared. The message box says md5 sums are different. Now the question is, have I done it correctly, I mean, is this the way to check a burned CD, OR, is there another way to check md5sum of a burned CD?

Hardware :: Burned DVD-R Cannot Be Mounted

Feb 10, 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.Never had any problems reading other DVDs. This is the first time I burn my own DVDs. So is there something particular that I should do when burning in order to make them readable on Linux? What shall I check for? The error message mentions a 'wrong fs type'. I didn't format the DVDs before burning them - just used them as purchased - can that be a problem?

Hardware :: Can't Boot From CD If It Was Burned?

Mar 3, 2010

So I picked up a new (too me) laptop Dell Laditude C640, Tried to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it, won't boot, all bios setting correct. Couldn't figure it out. Went through my stack of distro CD's Oddly I found It WOULD boot FC12, and a Debian Lenny Netinst CD (But not the full install one). Even weirder. Assumed bad CD, re burnt with new;t DL'd iso, Nothing. Tried on different media, Nothing. Burned it on my GF's laptop (Win7) WORKED! WTF kind of crap is that? what can it be doing that K3b / Brasero isn't.

Ubuntu :: Ownership & Permissions Change When Files Burned To DVD+RW?

Jan 18, 2010

After burning files to DVD+RW, the owner is changed to root, and all permissions are read only. I want to periodically open these files, update them, and save to the DVD again, but I no longer have permission and cannot change the permissions since I am no longer the owner. I tried sudo commands, but get responses "Read only file system". I have erased and reformatted the DVD and started over but get the same results.
I have Ubuntu 9.04, and have tried Brasero and Nautilus and get the same problem. Am I using the wrong kind of DVD/CD?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Desktop Edition - Burned Disk Not Readable

Apr 30, 2010

So I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition and burned it to a disk. Shut off my computer and restarted it, booting from the CD Drive. It couldn't find it. So I thought maybe there was an unrecorded write error so I burned it to a second disc. Well after burning it I noticed I can't even see the disc anymore. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all. That explains why it didn't boot from CD.

But what I want to know is why on earth is it basically going invisible and not working? I've never had a problem with burning discs, especially Ubuntu stuff... So why...? Well I just booted up the CD on a different computer and it seems to be working fine. So it appears that my computer simply has ceased to see bootable discs or maybe its just non-empty discs.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Data Verified Automatically After Being Burned To CD With Brasero?

Jul 31, 2011

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?

Fedora Installation :: Evaluate The Checksum - Burned A CD With The Disc1.iso

Apr 1, 2010

I've downloaded the

Fedora-12-x86_64-disc1.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc2.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc3.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc4.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc5.iso

files. I then downloaded "Fedora-12-x86_64-CHECKSUM" and ran sha1sum.exe on my iso files and compared the results. They were wrong for all 5 iso files. Figuring there was a problem with the way I was trying to evaluate the checksum I burned a CD with the disc1.iso. I received a "INSERT A BOOT DISK" error from my machine. I then tried downloading the disc1.iso again and ran checksum on my newly downloaded file and get the same checksum on both the old and new disc1.iso files.

When I run:

I get the response:

It seems to me the checksum value should be:

What am I doing wrong? I've installed many different distros in the past and am pretty sure I burned the iso file not just copied it to the CD.
