Thread: k3b troubles

  1. #1

    Default k3b troubles

    I'm recently having problems with k3b, had some with suse 12.2 too.. I don't burn DVDs too frequently but recently, I burned a DVD with about 1.5 GB of data with verify on and format for windows+linux. The burning finishes, doesn't reports any errors and the verification doesn't reports any errors either. But when closing k3d to check the DVD, Suse doesn't recognizes it as if no media was inserted.

    Suse does detects CD/DVDs and reads them.

    I had no problem recently burning the 12.3 iso image which I used to install the current version I'm using.

    Is it k3b ? any alternatives ?

    sounds like drive(hardware) issue to me. Try Brasero.

    I have no trouble with k3b

    Lets be clear... are you making Data DVD's?
    Only you made it sound like you were doing md5sum check, so perhaps you are burning .iso?

    Can you read the burned DVD in any other device (if available)?

    Optical media quality is important and optical drives go flaky regularly.

    You probably used a format (file system type) that is unknown to Windows.

    nope, I always select 'Windows + Linux' in the file format, which is the default selection.

    That is what is so nice in these GUI interfaces. You never know exactly what it means.
    I would like to know wat the fs type is. You can see that when you have that DVD in use on openSUSE (and thus it is mounted) using
    Code:
    mount
    and some intelligent guessing amongst the entries you see there.

    Try burning at the lowest speed and see if that helps. Some drives
    (older drives in particular) seem to have problems with higher speed
    burns, and that can lead to the symptoms you see.

    I'll check it out since I have to burn those files, just wanted to see if there were any reporting by other users before wasting more DVDs.

    On the speed, k3d checks for it and always goes for 17x.

    I'll try a fs just for windows and the lowest settings.

    Burning software will always try to go for the max speed it thinks it can
    do, but that's not a guarantee that the disc can be read by any drive
    other than the one it was burned in (and sometimes, even that's not a
    given).
