    Default Burn Failures Copying CD with K3B

    I am running a brand new install of openSUSE 13.1 (KDE). I have run the 1-click update script that adds the packman repository, and updates and codecs for K3B. I am attempting to copy a commercial CD (that I own) using K3B. So far, I have made multiple attempts that have all failed during during the operation of writing to the blank target disc. In each instance, the first several tracks are written, then a failure occurs. The K3B on-screen error display referred to a problem with permissions to write to the device. I've tweaked the configuration to use the "burning" group, added my user identity to that group, but it still failed. I re-attempted the operation logged in as root so as to test the validity of the permissions error. The operation failed again, at about the same point, though the error reported on the display was different - it suggested that trying TAO instead of DAO might resolve the problem. In a subsequent try, it didn't.

    I am using disc media from a supply that has worked fine in this (internal) writer for a long time (under different OS's on this same system).

    Any advice for other configuration or update steps I can apply to enable smooth K3B operation copying commercial CD's would be appreciated. I intend to create copies of CD's and DVD's that I own to create primary use media, and to preserve my original purchased discs.

    Thank you,

    John

    In order to find out if that commercial CD is related to the problem,
    you should try to create a plain CD.

    I see no evidence of permission error :-?


    You could try to use "cdrtools" instead of "wodim". It is available on
    the "multimedia:apps" repo.

    If that fails, then perhaps your burner is out of commission. They fail
    silently, eventually.

    Have you tried setting the burn speed to a lower value (eg 4x, 8x)? That can make a substantial difference with some media.

    I don't know if this helps, but I use growisofs for burning DVDs. You may need to install it first, I'm not sure.

    growisofs is actually a frontend. It uses mkisofs and cdrtools; the
    later is often replaced with wodim (in openSUSE, the current default is
    "wodim").

    I the past, when I burned a dual layer video DVD, wodim burned all of one layer and part of the other layer. When played in my stand-alone DVD player, it took over 1 minute to load the disc. Then I tried growisofs, and it split the layers evenly, and that disc only took 10 seconds to load. I've always set K3B to use growisofs for burning video DVDs since then. No idea if this is still an issue with wodim.

    All those tools use wodim to do the actual writing. What changes are the
    options used.

    You can check for yourself when you burn something with "growisofs": do
    a full process listing, with "ps afxu", for instance, and you should see
    what it uses for the writing.

    This is what I get for K3B:

    I see nothing there referring to wodim. For genisoimage it says "<defunct>".... this is burning a previously created ISO image of a concert DVD, so I'm not sure what genisoimage is for. I thought that only generated the ISO image. Am I right about that? Either way, it works for me, that's all that really matters.

    I just realized the OP is trying to burn CDs, not DVDs - my bad... growisofs only does DVDs, so I withdraw my suggestion.

    I have used growisofs in the past to burn both CDs and DVDs, IIRC.

    For some reason I don't remember groisofs stopped working on my
    computer, and I switched to wodim. Then I also have a note that wodim
    failed with rewriteable media...

    Thus my suggestion to replace wodim with cdrecord.
