dvd burning error

When trying to burn dvd’s with k3b and brasero (iso and video_ts) the burn ends with an error. I installed opensuse 11.0 on july 1st and was able to burn a couple dvd’s but now nothing will burn. I have performed system software updates. I am able to read from dvd’s. any help is appreciated.

Have you tried a different DVD disk, also do you have the latest firmware for your drive?

I don’t have other dvd’s to try. I can burn cd’s with k3b and I was able to burn a dvd with imgburn under wine. Maybe an update will fix the problem eventually.

I really enjoy opensuse and I don’t want to leave it, so as long as imgburn is working I should be ok but I would prefer k3b to work.

I looked at updating the firmware and I’m not sure how to go about. I don’t have a windows partition to easily install the firmware. I don’t think that is the problem though.


I have made coasters when I allowed k3b to choose the speed automatically and it burnt the DVD at too high a speed. The blank is supposed to be capable of 16x but apparently the burner isn’t up to even 8x despite what the specs say. When I limited the speed in k3b to 4x or 2x, I had no more problems.

This is also where firmware updates of the burner might help. I didn’t bother though, I’ll just leave well enough alone.

i was just wanting to know if this error has been updated yet. because i just installed opensuse 11 gnome, and i cannot burn any DVD/CD either. brasero shows me the same input/output error.

my laptop used to burn discs fine with Fedora 9. but this is the only hitch i have after my move from F 9 to Opensuse 11. otherwise, i love it.

i know this post is old, but please reply to confirm.

thanks a lot.

Hi all,

I have been having burn issues over the past month, but for me I have managed to find the answer.

I have two sets of new blank DVD’s. One is Tesco DVD-R and the other is Kodak DVD-R.

I decided to try and search on Google to find out something about disc quality and found a revealing site at

digitalFAQ.com | Blank DVD Media Quality Guide

give it a read.

I found that both my set of disc’s were in the third catagory and were only fit for landfill. I purchased some “Taiyo Yudew” disc’s on line and they all burn 100%.

It may not be a program, but more the fault of really bad blanks.

Best regards Keith

I am using Sony DVD-R. it was in the first category. so it is really not a problem with the discs. thanks for the link, though. I had read the same link before from ubuntuforums.

Thanks,but is there no other solution?

i hope it gets resolved in 11.1 though. it seems that this is a problem not just with opensuse 11, but a lot of the newer versions of other distros. especially the application brasero.
