Ubuntu :: Lengthy Error While Burning Data Disk With Brasero
Jul 24, 2010
I'm having trouble burning a data disk. When I burn it ejects the DVD, then saves a log. Here's the last few lines of its contents:

Quite a bit of stuff. You can download its full contents. I have no idea what this means and I really would like to make this disk.
I want to have brasero or k3b do a data check after burning a backup cd. I know that in Nero for Windows you just click on the box that says "verify after burning". For brasero I see that you need an md5 file but it will be to tedious to use an md5 utility to make a checksum for every file and then put in in a txt.
I see there are a lot of other threads on this subject, but I don't find any solution in the other threads. I have been trying to burn cd's directly in Ubuntu, using Brasero, which was already installed. Why does it not work? It says that an "unknown error occurred" or something like that. I don't remember the exact error message right now. I am now burning cd's in "Gnomebaker" which I found in the applications list. This works fine, but only at the speed of 4x, no faster. I hope to get the brasero application to work, as this is the easiest, fastest way, just dragging files to the cd.
I was trying to burn a dvd to an image file today, and the first one worked no problem, I tried to burn another and I keep getting this error: Data could not be written (Input/output error) Here's my log:
I'm trying to burn an audio CD with Brasero. Every time I try this, it fails, but it works when writing to an image file. Brasero quits with the following messages in log:
Code: Checking session consistency (brasero_burn_check_session_consistency brasero-burn.c:1744) Unsupported type of task operation Session error : An internal error occurred (brasero_burn_record brasero-burn.c:2862) Do you know what could be causing this?
I don't know what the difference is between DVD+R and DVD-R or if it matters, lol.
I was trying to burn 2.0 GB of data to a 4.7-GB DVD+R and after it finished burning, I got "There was an error writing to the disk."
When I opened the directory of the disk, it appeared that all of the files were there, but when I tried to open any of them, I got "Could not read from the resource" errors.
I tried burning it again to a fresh disk and it was the same except when I tried to open the files it said variations of "error interpreting file".
I checked the log files and mostly it was unhelpfully generic errors, except for this line: "BraseroLibburn Asynchronous SCSI error on CLOSE TRACK SESSION: [3 73 04] Program memory area update failure"
That part was the same for both attempts. What could be causing this?
So I popped in a blank CD, opened up brasero, told it to create a new video project, added my files.... It told me to install vcdimager, so I did that and restarted brasero. I then told it to burn the video files to the disk as an (S)VCD. It began converting the files before the burn. After the conversion was complete, it gave the message "ejecting medium" and then it ejected the disk. After that, it said it encountered and error and wouldn't do anything from there. I tried a different CD, I tried just closing the disk drive. It just gives me the same error.
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.
I want to burn an iso file to my DVD-r, i use brasero and yesterday have upgraded to 10.10 NBR (UBUNTU RULES- I HAVE HAD IT FOR 2 YRS!) when i click on the 'burn image' tab on the brasero menu all is well but then when i click the properties and click on 2.0x speed (my friends drive can't read anything set any higher than 2.0x) it does not save that property and it goes and burns at much higher speeds like 3.4X. p.s does anyone know how to get rid of the deleted items icon on the 10.10 NBR menu
I'm having trouble burning a DVD via command line or Brasero. The DVD Burner is the only IDE Device in the system. Although Disk Utility seems to display it as SCISI. Originally Ubuntu would only see the drive but do nothing when a DVD is inserted it. atleast recognizes the DVD now.

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?
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?
I download the live 64 and burned it to a disk after it burns to the disk Brasero checks and says "error some files could be corrupted." I burn it slowest burn same thing happen. I downloaded thinking I had a corrupted download. Same thing happen. I never had a problem burning iso until now. What am I doing wrong?
I have tried to burn dvd's using Brasero, after making the dvd etc I choose to burn as a video, but it gets to around 95% of converting the file to MPEG2 or 4 (Tried both) and just sits there doing nothing!I even left it over night to see if that helped but no joy.
I was trying to make a copy of a DVD recently. I started with Brasero, and when that didn't work, I installed k3b. Both came back w/similar symptoms. Neither burned the DVD and seemed to hang up. When either program stopped/hung, I checked on the file that was being captured from the original DVD and discovered that both programs produced a max file of 1.5 GB (source was 6+ GB). I checked the size of the partition where the file was being temporarilty stored and there is 18 GB of space.
I've encountered a problem when trying to burn a video file to DVD using Brasero Disc Burner. I put the DVD and then open up Brasero and click on "video protect" then I chose the video file I want to burn, I click the "burn" button and choose the settings I want then when press the "burn" button once more. I then get this screen... It then ejects the DVD and I get this...
I tried the above using an existing multisession CD where data files were previously burned in a different pc using K3b. However, when the burning was completed successfully, the CD could not be read at all. I repeated the process with a blank CD choosing to leave it open in order to add more data later. All went well and the CD was readable but when I tried to add data to the same CD I got the message
Appending new files to a multisession disc is not advised.
Already burnt files will be invisible (though still readable). Do you want to continue anyway?
I opted not to continue despite the temptation to see how invisible files can be read.
To sum it up, I find this turn of events absolutely appalling given that Brasero is the default software for CD burning in my system (Xubuntu 9.10). Can anyone tell me how to resolve this glaring shortcoming of Brasero so as to keep all my data files easily accessible in multisession CDs?
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?
I am using an embedded platform in which I have connected an external harddisk (/dev/sda). The SCSI driver is present and I am using the SG_IO interface for performing the SMART commands with the Hard Disk. (Unfortunately not all the HDIO ioclts are present. So I opted for the SG_IO ioctl). But the data transfer (reading/write data from/to sector) is not working with the SG_IO ioctls. So I searched for some other options. Later in one of the places, I found that we can actually mount the /dev/sda to some mount point in /mnt and then make a XFS file system (mkfs.xfs) of this.
And then we can create the directories and do file operations on this mounted directory. Here the simple read/write systems calls can be used for this. I was thinking about this implementation. But I am confused how I can map the actual LBA (Logical Block Address) to the device file offset. I mean if I want to write to the sector 5, there will be a LBA for it. So I can do lseek on my device and then write the data there. So how the mapping between LBA and device file offset can be calculated.
I am using Brasero 2.30.2 on Ubuntu 10.04. The problem is that whenever I use Brasero to burn any CD/DVD, it burns it but refuses to eject, although I always select the option to eject disk after burning. Instead, it displays a message saying something like "Please eject the disk manually to finish the burning process".
K3B burning data and ISO files. Disc Media:Datawrite DVD & CD Discs
Old Box OS: WinXP Pro SP3 32bit Burning Software:Nero 126.96.36.199 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.
Forgetting bad past experience (in debian i386 and amd64), I have newly lost a new DVD in trying to create a data disk with brasero with debian i386. After successful simulation at the lowest speed, burning failed and I expect that the disk is no more good (this occurred in the past). In the past I complained with debian, getting no answer.
In contrast, I tried k3b with full success. However, as a gnome user, installation of k3b brought in so much of kde that proper use of gnome was prevented. Can anyone tell of an installation of k3b that does not hinder gnome? In particular not the startx procedure (as I normally work without calling the x server).
I'm running Lucid RC with all updates and Brasero 2.30.0. I can't do a disk copy with this program. It gives me an error that not all libraries are installed. It first gave an error that cdda2wav was not installed but that is not true and now I get this general error. I'm installing K3B as we speak but I prefer to keep a straight Gnome installation.
I know it might sound silly but is there any special Windows compatibility mode when burning a data DVD (containing photos) on linux? It's not the first time that I've burned some photos on a DVD and my Windows friends can't open them. Either the dvd doesn't open at all or it shows that the DVD is full but doesn't display any files whatsoever. When I try the DVD back in Linux (both my desktop and laptop) everything is fine. I've got a relatively new burner and my friends don't have old ones either. I usually use xfburn (sometimes k3b) Is it me doing something wrong? I didn't burn it at the slowest speed, but it wasn't the maximum speed either.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.1 to try to make a disk image of my Windows operating system that I'd like to save to an external hard drive. Currently, I'm just running Ubuntu off the cd. Having checked the "Ubuntu Software Centre" on my computer, I notice that it has Brasero installed, and I was wondering:
1) First off, where can I find it? (Is there a search function in Ubuntu like Windows?)
2) Is Brasero a good choice to create a disk image?
