    Default Can't burn DVD/Can't ugrade

    G'day Lady's and Lads


    I try solve problem and my got stuck you are my lest resort. I wont record a .iso of latest and greatest openSUSE but when blank DVD in to drive, drive spins for couple minutes and stops. The blank DVD doesn't show up in file system so in consequence I can not upgrade. Of course first thing is use usb but my hardware is to old to boot from usb. System currently I'm using is running openSUSE 12.3 gnome edition 32bit and file hardware info from yast is under this link:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3K...it?usp=sharing

    The key thing is blank DVD is not mounting in file system, so to confirm it what I have to log, pull or dump to show what is go on.It will be very nice if some tell what to do. I be grateful for further questions to specify any necessary information. Thank you for your help and time


    Sincerely
    Kris

    Need to know:

    1. Version of openSUSE you are running;
    2. Desktop you are using (KDE, Gnome?);
    3. What disk-burning program(s) you have installed; and
    4. Which ISO are you using (Full install DVD?).

    A blank disk can not mount since it has no file system to mount.

    You should get a notification if you are running the notification applet and that should give several option

    In any case you should be able to start what ever burning software you use and burn the iso as an iso image to the DVD

    Blank DVDs do not show in the file system precisely because they are
    blank. You have to BURN them with something before you can read that
    something. And you can do that only once, with special software for
    "burning" optical media.

    In Gnome you have "brasero", which is Spanish for a coal stove you put
    under the table. Burning, you know.

    I KDE you have K3B.

    So you fire up one of those, and find the option to "burn an iso image",
    and use it to burn the image to the blank DVD.

    Put a blank DVD in the DVD drive
    Right click the downloaded .iso and select open with Brasero
    The rest should be self explanatory

    My suggestion is to try PLOP boot manager (google to find it). See if that will allow you to boot a USB.

    It's either that, or replace your DVD drive.

    I'm using PLOP on an older computer without BIOS support for USB booting. It works reasonably well, though booting a USB is slow (because it is done in a slow emulation mode). My CD/DVD has failed, and it did not seem worth the cost of replacing for that old a machine.

    Please, use susepaste.org, and better resolution, I can not read
    anything there. And you can force brasero to run in English by using:

    Code:
    LANG=C brasero
    in a terminal.

    If brasero does not work, you can use k3b instead. You may have to
    install it.

    Please understand that a blank dvd will NEVER show up in any filemanager.

    Does the optical drive work with Movie DVD's or Data DVD's/CD's?

    Optical drives often just die
