OpenSUSE Hardware :: DVD Drive Will Not Read Burned Dual Layer Discs?

Feb 22, 2010

seen this or have suggestions on how to fix this. I can read the original disks but I cannot read the backup. The backup disc was burned on Window$ using Nero.I am trying to read the disc using both VLC and Totem but you can see in /var/log/messages there is an issue with reading the disc. This disc is readable in the Window$ box and on all DVD stand alone players.

Slackware :: Read And Write Data Dvds But Cannot Play A Regular Dvd?

Jun 29, 2011

I can read and write data dvds, but cannot play a regular dvd now. I have libdvdcss installed. I am running Slackware 64 13.37 (just installed).

MPlayer 20101218-4.5.1 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team
Playing dvd://.
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading


It can see the drive is there and /dev/sr0 is linked to /dev/dvd and I tried running as root to check if it was a permissions problem but got the same thing.

I have tried lots of different DVDs in the drive, same issue. I even switched out my DVD drive to another old DVD-ROM I had laying around, same thing.

Installation :: 8GB Flash Drive Because My D Drive Doesn't Read DVDs?

Jun 20, 2010

I bought an 8GB flash drive because my D drive doesn't read DVDs. Anyway, my goal is to install Linux ubuntu and have it be my OS (replacing Windows XP). Last night I went to the Ubuntu homepage and downloaded the Ubuntu desktop edition 32-bit and put it on my flash drive. I followed the instructions on how to open and run it, but I was never asked about whether I want Linux to run side by side with Windows or if I want it to replace Windows. It downloaded the whole program, my computer restarted and then (on a black screen) it asked if I wanted to use Windows XP Home Edition or Linux Ubuntu. It's really frustrating because it took a while to download and install it in the first place AND to top that off, when I tried to use Ubuntu it went to a black screen and at the top said that there was an error. So I uninstalled all the ubuntu program and software and now I have a clean slate and want to try this again. I am a complete n00b. Could someone please walk me through how I can go about downloading (w/ links plz), installing and making ubuntu my ONLY OS on my computer via a flash drive? I'm desperate and I don't want to go through all of that and make the same mistake again!

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Make Floppy Drive Read Disc Automatically

Oct 24, 2010

Not sure if anyone uses floppy drives anymore much. I know that most machines don't come with them anymore unless you ask for one.One of my machines [Machine # 2] has a floppy and I have never had the occaision to use it under linux [opensuse 11.2 currently]. Until now that is! I have about 30 floppies that I need to transfer the data from. I am able to mount the floppy drive and take data off the currently inserted floppy, but if I want to insert another floppy and remove the data from it, I must unmount and remount the floppy everytime. There is an entry in fstab:

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user 0 0

and a mount point in media [/media/floppy] Is there something else I need to have in the fstab line for the floppy so that it will read automatically everytime I insert a disk?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: SATA Disc SMART Data Shows New Drive Faulty Centos5.4?

Nov 26, 2009

I have a new system using an Intel DG451D main board. I have been trying to get a RAID 1 mirror set working as the main drive in this system and for some reason, my SATA drives - three of them all new have had their SMART data changed to show the drives as failing and in need of replacement. Eventually the drive reports failure to the degree that the BIOS no longer recognises it. When loading the Centos os I was getting differing results because of this issue. I am not sure if this is a hardware issue even - I know that the drives were all very much OK and brand new - no good now! Just putting a feeler out to see if anyone has had a similar issue or to see if anyone knows of any possible known causes for this?

Failing any explanation, can anyone suggest a good desktop style Main Board that supports RAID well for Centos 5.4? I plan to sue this as a small server system so graphics etc are not important here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Won't Read Most Discs?

Dec 9, 2010

I have several old poweredge 2450 servers I bought recently, used. I have made several Ubuntu 8.04 or 8.04.4 server cds. They all hang on the packages.gz file trying to install. I used the check disc function on the 2450s and it can't read the file, it thinks it is corrupt, though it works fine on a more modern computer.have tried several similar computers. I have burned to CD-R and CD-RW. I have burned at 8x (slowest on my drive).I have checked the MD5. I just don't understand why these computers won't read this disc properly. Or several other discs, like SMS server or tiny core. Won't read them either. Oh, but it reads Ubuntu 10.10 server just fine, installs ok, well slowly, but it works.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Read DVDs, Able To Read CDs?

Mar 15, 2011

The titles says about everything. CD's are perfectly automounted.WhenI insert a DVD however (I tried various DVDs), absolutely nothing happens, as if I would have inserted nothing or a blank DVD.I already read lots of threads and nothing o help... Here are the outputs of a few commands that might or might not be useful.A line I added myself in fstab which appears completely useless:

/dev/sr0 /media/dvd auto utf8,user,noauto,exec 0 0

Ubuntu :: DVD Drive Won't Mount Or Load Discs?

Mar 6, 2010

unable to mount cdrom0 mount: special device /dev/scd0 does not exist

I know the drive is hooked up via SATA.

It has worked before, and I have no idea why it isn;t working now. And I have made no BIOS changes since it worked once. The only change is I installed the newest kernal, that I can think of.

I ran accross someone asking someone with a similar problem to run:

ls /dev | grep cd

so I did and I get: andrew@andrew-desktop:~$ ls /dev | grep cd pktcdvd

Hardware :: DVD-RW Drive Not Reading Discs?

Apr 22, 2011

Installed Ubuntu 10.10 this morning from CD, downloaded all the latest updates. But when I put a CD or DVD in the drive, I can't access any of the data. Disk utility recognises that the drive is there, but it says "No medium detected".

Disk utility recognises it at /dev/sr0 so I added a line to fstab

/dev/sr0 /mnt/dvd udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0

but made no difference

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Read Win 7 Disc

Jul 25, 2010

I've had some problems with my ubuntu lately (>.<) and would like to use my Windows 7 disc to install windows side by side with ubuntu (for compatibility reasons). The problem is, my computer won't boot the disc on startup, won't read it at all, and thus I can't install it. How can I make Ubuntu read the Windows 7 disc? All other discs work fine.

Its not just my disc- I've used this disc on other computers no problem, and my Ubuntu reads other discs without any problems.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Recording TV Audio / Video With DVDs?

Oct 4, 2010

First up, let me say this post has almost nothing to do with Ubuntu, so you may ask: Then why am I here? I am here because I didn't know where else to turn.

My main problem here is that I would like to be able to record myself playing a video game on my TV, and be able to toss the file onto my computer to edit/upload. I've heard of 'Dazzle' those TV recorder things, but I'm looking for more of a home quickfix.

What I was thinking of doing was hooking up a DVD player to a tv. Then hooking up my wii to the DVD player, to the TV. This way the game would be displayed on channel three. If I were to do this, would I be able to put a blank DVD in the drive, and set it to record channel three? Since channel three will be my game, would it record the video game? I'm sure if it would, it wouldn't be the best quality.

Programming :: Data Directory In Automake - Data Is Always Read-only ?

May 9, 2010

I have some data files that should be distributed with my program. Using dist_pkgdata_DATA in Makefile.am, I get these files installed to /usr/local/data/share/package-name. The problem is that data is read-only, and my program needs to modify it. Playing with dist_sharedstate_DATA, dist_localstate_DATA, dist-data_DATA varibles, I got different installation directories, like /usr/local/com, usr/local/var, but data is always read-only.

How can I distribute modifiable data files with my package? I need some common directory for all users, or maybe local data in a user directory.

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 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.

Fedora :: Copying CDs / DVDs (Video And Data) In Raw Mode

Dec 10, 2009

I'm trying to find out which application will copy DVD discs (video and data) in raw mode. Something that works for DVDs like cdrdao works for CDs. I tried using cdrdao but it errors out because the DVD disc is too big for it. I tried looking at Brasero but I can't tell if it offers a raw option. I see that Brasero lets you copy a DVD to a RAW image, then burn the RAW image back to a DVD-R. If Brasero uses RAW mode to do a direct copy, this would essentially do the same thing, but I can't tell if that is what it does. But, I think this will work.

Applications :: Finding A Program To Destroy Data On DVDs

Feb 7, 2011

What I want to do is force my DVD burner to use full writing power on the entire surface of a DVD. This should be able to invisibly damage the contained data, and should work on CDs, DVDs and BRDs too (in theory). I don't want to write data over it, so it's not a matter of having a RW disc or a R one. The result I want to obtain is simply an unreadable disc that does not look damaged. Do you know if there's a program able to ignore a disc being already full and perform this task?
