Ubuntu :: Trying To Burn/rip DVD's Using Brasero The Laptop Kept Shutting Down For No Reason?
Apr 20, 2010
My son is using 9.10 as his only OS on a Advent 5431 laptop, with a Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor T3200, 1024MB of RAM, 160 GB HD and a Integrated Graphics Card. The problem is this,e was trying to burn/rip DVD's using Brasero the laptop kept shutting down for no reason that he could see, now when trying to do anything again it keeps shutting down when using Oos or just browsing/facebook/myspace/MSN. Has anyone any ideas why this could be happening?
running lucid and whatever updates are current.Im attempting to burn a avi to dvd format with brasero, but when i hit "burn" brasero sais "ejecting disc" and says that an internal error has occurred. the saved log is blank.any thoughts? i have dvd author and the error message doesnt appear until the disc has ejected. but really it should not be ejecting if it is going to perform a burn.
I need to burn tracks that total to 80-82 minutes on 80min CDs. However, Brasero stops the burning process right at the start complaining there is not enough space on the CD. I tried having Brasero create an image and burn it with k3b. However, Brasero creates a .cue and a .bin file, but when loading the .cue file, k3b says that it does not seem to be a valid image, even when selecting ".cue/.bin image" or "audio cue file" as the image type. k3b itself refuses to burn .mp3 files without manual conversion. what should I do to achieve my goal?
Both my cd/dvd drives work fine out of xp so they're connected properly.
I tried to use Brasero to burn an iso to a cd; Brasero responds with the message "Please replace the disc with a supported CD or DVD." But my Sony and Maxell discs should be supported, so what could be causing this message?
Is the bash command cdrecord an alternative to Bresaro? If so then what is the command syntax to burn file.iso to a cd in a cd/dvd drive?
I sometimes get downloads, usually of linux OS's where the file is too large for a cd and has to be formated as a dvd. When I try to burn it to a disk, I keep getting something that says I need to insert a blank dvd.
Problem is, I have a blank dvd in the tray all ready to go. The unit I'm using is a Sony external dvd burner hooked up by a usb. Bresero wouldn't touch it, so I installed k3b (this is in Ubuntu10.04) k3b could read that I had a blank dvd in the drive, but when I pointed to what file I intended to burn, I kept getting the "insert blank dvd", and it wouldn't start, even though the screen in the background could see that the dvd was loaded and ready. No problem for cd's, they'll burn like an oil slick on the Gulf of Mexico.
I created a system backup ISO with remastersys that's about 3.4 GB, and I've repeatedly had failure and about 4 coasters now with both K3b and Brasero trying to burn it. I even ditched the original ISO and made another- same problem.I have always had problems burning discs in both programs, and of all the times I've tried to burn anything with either, I've gotten errors near the end of the data check stage, in verifying the data burned. I'm really tired of this, and I need this ISO perfect to reinstall my OS on a new laptop harddrive.This time it's K3b. It burned successfully, but I get errors in the data verification stage. Here's what I got:
I used to burn CDs/DVDs with Brasero on my old Dell PC running various Ubuntu distros, till it started producing faulty discs. There were other problems with the old machine, so I started burning discs on my Toshiba laptop (Ubuntu 10.04) using Brasero - no problems at all. Now I've got a new Dell (Ubuntu 11.04) and, strangely, when I tried to burn some CDs with Brasero, it took 5 attempts to get 2 good discs - not a good success rate. Tried again with Open CD/DVD Creator on the Dell - no problem. 100% success. So is it Brasero? Is it Dell? Is it newer Ubuntus? The discs haven't changed, they're Verbatim.
I am burning an ISO of Ubuntu 9.10 amd 64 desktop edition. I am using the same operating system but need to burn the ISO to do a clean install.
My Specs: Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic) AMD Turion(tm) II Ultra Dual-Core Mobile L2 Cache 1024 4 GIG Ram Cd-drive: Hp DVDRAM GT20L

I created a few 'images' with Brasero a few days ago to burn at a future point in time, today. The first thing I noticed while copying the 'images' is that there were two files, one sans extension and one .toc, not the single .iso I'm used to dealing with.Unfortunately I did not have internet access while copying so I was unable to obtain clarification or how to proceed. So now I have around 50 of these pairs I would like nvert to music CDs.After much Googling I have yet to obtain any relevant info on how to proceed.
I am having problems burning audio CDs with Brasero 2.30.0 after my upgrade to 10.04. I was trying to burn a .wav file to CD but Brasero ejects the media without burning anything after transcoding the wav file and creating an image. I'm attaching the error log to aid in debugging.I can burn data CDs fine. My burner, a Samsung SM-308B, can't burn DVDs so I don't know about burning them.
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.
I have been trying to burn an ISO to a blank DVD with Brasero Disc Burner, but every time I try, it gets at around 93% done, then gives me:
"The disc could not be ejected, though it needs to be removed for the current operation to continue"
I have attached a screenshot of the error. And this is not my error screenshot, I have a different DVD Drive. I just attached this one because I didn't want to wait for it to give me an error again so I could take my own screenshot.
Does anybody know why this happens? Or a way to fix it? Or a different software to burn ISO to DVD that is as simple as this one.
When I change the "When laptop lid is closed" option in Gnome Power Manager to either "Blank Screen" or "Do Nothing" (by manually using gconf-editor), the screen itself doesn't turn off when the lid is closed. Obviously not a huge deal, as I could just change the "idle before sleep" on certain occasions, but I liked that setting it to "Do Nothing" previously would actually turn off the screen when the lid was closed.
This happens every time I try to burn an audio CD burning data CD seems to work fine.I open Brasero, click Audio project, drag a couple of FLAC files into it and try to burn, or in this particular case, create an image.A dialogue pops up where I am supposed to tell it where to put the image. I click Desktop but I don't change the file name (something like brasero.cue or whatever).Then it starts doing things but after a short while I get an error message and I am asked to save the log file, which I did and here it is:
Code: Checking session consistency (brasero_burn_check_session_consistency brasero-burn.c:1741) BraseroNormalize called brasero_job_get_action
im trying to burn an audio cd with brasero,when i select the audio files to add to the project i get an error message saying :"Track 1.wav" could not be opened." and :"Track 1.wav" is not suitable for audio or video media."i also tried the "copy cd" option,the program recognizes the audio cd in my drive but when i press the copy button the window disappears and nothing happen.i had a similar problem lately see thread - cant burn dvd,but this time i want to try and use brasero instead of k3b
I've just installed Xubuntu last night on a spare drive because I really wanted to try it out. Install and initial setup (upgrades, extras and so on) worked like a charm, then I got to burn an audio cd with Brasero starting from some mp3s floating around my external media drive. The burn process itself went good and the CD is fully readable, but I notice that CD-text is missing.
So, when I added files to the main window of Brasero id3 tags were there (I've seen them, plus I set each and every of them via Easytag before putting the files in my external media drive so I'm sure of that), but once the CD was finished there was no CD-text at all. Maybe I just have to download some additional packages which aren't included in Brasero or have missed some menu item about CD-text?
I am not able to burn audio CDs with Brasero 2.30.1, which uses cdrdao 1.2.3 However, Opensuse 11.3 comes with cdrdao 1.2.2 I don't feel comfortable replacing the version myself. Is there any plans to update cdrdao for Opensuse any time soon? PS: I am running Gnome in Opensuse 11.3
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 recently switched distributions, I let a guy talk me into switching from Ubuntu 8.04 to Mint 9. Since the switch, I have had a lot of issues that I have mainly worked out myself. I have posted all of it on the Mint forum, but there hasn't been much help available there. I have been told that Mint 9 is based on the newest release of Ubuntu (Lucid Lynx), so I thought I would post over here to see if anyone could help me. The only thing that's still giving me fits are the 3 software programs above. Using k9copy and trying to burn directly to disc, I am getting the error that I took the screenshot of. I then burned it as an iso image and saved it, then tried to use k3b and brasero to burn it that way and got errors with both of those programs.
I have a Dell Inspiron mini 10'1". When I close it and reopen it, it almost always freezes. I can't do anything, ctrl alt delete doesn't work, pushing the button doesn't activate it either (I mean Turn on/off button). I have to hold shut down button so it would turn off, I lose everything I was working with, and simply have to start it again. I'm using Windows XP SP3 home edition.
Last week I installed Zoneminder so I can have some webcam security and I let it run on Mocord (motion detection record) for 24 hours just to see how it worked and run some tests. After that 24 hours I changed it to Monitor so that it wouldn't record anything and wouldn't fill up my 320 gig drive but even after I did that the webcam LED stayed on. Not sure if this is normal, I guess it is since it is still using the webcam, just not recording. I don't think. 2 nights ago I was using it to watch videos online and it was a little slow but was still good enough.
This morning I unplugged it and brought it downstairs to use it but when I opened the lid the hard drive LED was constant and the mouse was all jumpy. Anything I clicked on took a minute to register and the disk utility that I tried loading 2 days earlier looked like it was still loading. I couldn't click anything because the hard drive was running like crazy. Or processor or whatever that light is. So I held the power button, rebooted and nothing on the menu bar was loaded and the hard drive was going crazy again, still couldn't click on anything.
So I rebooted again and this time it gave me a popup before the desktop loaded: There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/conf-sanity-check-2 extend with status 256)
So I click Close and it boots to a black background with huge icons and there are obviously no drivers loaded. There's now a new error message: GConf error: Faield to contact configuration server: the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus daemon. See [URL] for information. (Details - 1: GetIOR faield: GDBus.Error: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildSignaled: Process /usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconfd-2 received signal 6)
All further errors shown only on terminal. And then it does nothing, all the menus say KDE. Webcam LED is still on though since Zoneminder runs as a service on Apache. It's a dual core Dell Studio 15 laptop with all the newest updates and I have 3 separate partitions on my install: /, /home, SWAP. My / partition has 2 gigs free according to KDE and my /home partition has 124 gigs free.
Since I installed Ubuntu 11.04 I noticed that my laptop heats up for no reason and the battery life has become shorter, then when I searched for this problem I've found that it's a bug and most probably it's in the Linux kernel itself, so is there any patches, updates or any news about this problem, do they out there even know it exists or what?
I am on an Aspire 5315 and i have Backtrack 5,32bit,Gnome (ubuntu)installed with Vista as a dual boot on hdd.I am currently having problem with my laptop overheating and shutting down. In Vista the software Epower controls the fan but in linux I have to install acer_fancontrol and I have installed it as per instructions. It works fine till i reboot and then i get a frozen screen with the BT5 background and in terminal i get 1gear and goes on till 3rdgear without me being able to use BT5.
Ever since I installed ubuntu 10.10, my laptop is shutting down due to high temperature within 15-20 mins. It makes my laptop literally unusable. Had posted the issue, got some advise but the issue didn't get resolved, hence posting again.
Below is previous post. [url]
Is there any tool or way by which I can check if it's a hardware issue.
I recently tried to burn an ISO image to a DVD. Everything seemed to be going fine except Brasero froze at "Finalizing". It stayed there for about 10 minutes before I gave up. When I hit cancel nothing happened. When I tried to eject the drive nothing happened. Not until I shut the computer down and restarted was I able to open my DVD drive. Upon trying to read the disc no computer shows that it has anything on it.
