Here is my problem using K3B when writing Multi-session Project:
Using Wodim 1.1.10.
Starting TAO to writing at 48x speed
performing Optimum Power calibratpo;;p;9;n
starting disk write
cdrecord has no permission to open the device
You may use K3bsetup to solve this problem"
I have the same problem with the other cd-burner programs, such as:
Brasero Disk Burner, Gnome Baker CD/DVD Writer, xfBurn, and CD/DVD Creator.
Why all the programs are malfunctioning since yesterday? I un-installed some of them, re-started the pc, but the problem continues...
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
alright well in the past week since ive installed linux ive installed every plugin codec known to man. i had a problem with my skins dvd to i cant remember what i found to get that working. now my avenged sevenfold dvd isnt working saying it needs plugins.
don't direct me to the same old terminal command to install totems plugins. ive already installed them this dvd isnt working. and for some reason on ubuntu when i try to update things say movie player to find the codecs by itself i get an error message.
I have still not succeeded in getting my Region 2 DVDs to play in Ubuntu 10.04. I used something called Regionset to reset the player from zero to 2 for playback in the UK but although it is now set to Region 2 it will only play Region 0 DVDs. I have tried all sorts of tricks with codecs and installing VLC and (of course) Ubuntu Restricted Extras but no joy.
I have used my PC for watching videos for some time. Normalmente with VLC under Ubuntu 10.4. Recently though I have two videos I brought from the States (I am in Argentina) and neither will work. They are ok on my DVD player, but not on the PC. In VLC the control pannel opens, but the video window opens a second and closes. In the Mplayer it says it could not read from source.
Back in the DOS days (yes I am dating myself) there was a backup command that would back the selected files across a series of floppy disks. Is there such a command in Karmic to backup across multiple DVDs?
I would like to do some backups of my data and other important files but I have more than 4 GB of information. I have seen posts on ways to write a compressed file but that still stores it on the HDD and I would like the files on DVDs in case the HDD crashes.
I'm trying to back up one of my dvds to my hdd. My usual method is to copy the video_ts folder onto my hdd and convert it from there. I popped this dvd into my computer and nautilus is saying that there is 71.8gb of data on this disk. If I run df -h, here's what I see:
There are actually 65 of these 1gb files. why this is happening or how to get this backed up?
My newly installed (but not new) DVD drive seems to play some movies some days, but others all the time. I'm pretty sure it's just a little picky about scratches. I can hear it in the drive; when I insert the disk, I can tell when it isn't spinning. When it does start spinning, that's when the Media options window pops up asking me what I want to do with the disk.
I've got a project which requires me to go through a bunch of dvds and take little clips out of them. I do not want to have to rip the entire dvd and then transcode it and then take the clip out of the one I've saved on my drive as I have lots and lots of dvds to get though I've tried loads of things and none of them seem to be able to do this, dvdrip, cinelarra, kedenlive, live, kino and others that I can't remember the names of.
I just upgraded to Karmic, I had not previously tried to play dvds but i cant seem to get it to work. I downloaded VLC to see if thta would fix it but to no avail. Any ideas?? I also downloaded a restricted date allowance package but nothing works. It doenst say it cant play it, it just wont start at all.
For windows computers, you make an "autorun" file and point it to the icon.ico file, and when the disk is inserted, you get the icon of your choice displayed. However, how do I make a similar set up for Linux?
I need to rip my DVDs, an operation which is heavy on the CPU, on my laptop. This makes the temperature rise very quickly, even if the process has very high nice value, and my laptop was already shut off automatically once. Probably there is some bug, since the temperature if often hotter than optimal, but this is really too much (plus these days my room is hot too).
I don't want to ruin anything, so I'd like to put some kind of limit on the CPU usage. Say I don't want any of the two CPUs to go over 70% (a moment ago they were both at 100%, I have paused the process). Is there a way ti d0 this?
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.
When I put a DVD in either of my two drives, the movie will not play using either VLC or Movie Player.
When I go to 'Open Disc' in VLC, next to 'Disc Device' it lists a string of two very odd characters, ��, as the only option. The drop-down arrow doesn't work. When I click on 'Browse' and navigate to the name of the movie (which I assume is the drive) in the 'Places' menu, nothing happens.
In Movie Player, when I go to Movie > Play Disc "(Insert Movie Name Here)", I get the following error message: "Could not read from resource"
The same thing happens with either drive, with either of two DVDs.
Whenever I put a few files into a blank CD or DVD, wether it's pictures, music, documents, whatever, and then I use it another day and try to put a few more files into it, Ubuntu won't let me. I used to be able to continue adding files to my CDs in XP, so I'm not sure if there's any way to do that with Ubuntu? It just shows the DVD as (for example) 1.4 GB used, 0 GB free.
I just installed 10.10 coming from 10.04. I was using Wine and DVDShrink to back up my DVDs, make iso's of the etc. It was working fine in that when I placed a dvd in the drive, wine/DVDShrink saw it immediately, with the name of the mount in the media folder attached to drive D: Now on a fresh install, the DVD mounts in the media folder, but wine/DVDShrink doesn't see it. I have to manually specify the full path to the mount point /media/DVD_name_US_16x9_whatever as drive D: using winecfg. I know I had a lot more stuff installed before configuring wine under 10.04 like fuseiso and such but I don't know which may have done what, or maybe something changed in Maverick?I don't want to have to winecfg for every DVD I put in the drive...
