I've been trying to burn a video DVD, backed up to my HD, do Verbatim
DL DVD+R media.

K3B failed four times (leaving me with coasters), but worked fine when
I've burned (a different DVD) into a regular single layer (Taiyo Yuden
DVD+R) media.

      Code:

I've tried in two different devices (listed in the log file), both
giving errors. The main screen showed a message saying that the user
had no permission to write on the device, but the user is in the CDROM
group, and I've even gave (temporarily) RWX permissions to all, and it
still failed.

On the other hand, the command
      Code:

growisofs -speed=4 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr1 -dvd-video .

from within the directory containing VIDEO_TS worked flawlessly.

Any ideas? Is this a bug that should be reported?

Thanks,

Luis

I burn movies pretty regularly from my HD with K3b on Memorex DL DVD+R
and have not had any problems using the default settings which includes
the permissions settings. I just did another burn to check since K3b was
just updated(2.0.2) All OK so I don't think it is a bug. Yeah, I've had a lot of coasters over the years!

Thanks redsid for thre reply!

My settings are also default and I don't think it is hardware or media, as I could use growisofs without any problems... It leaves me wondering what could be the problem... (I'm still using 2.0.1, though.)

If anyone has any other ideas about what I could do to find what is wrong, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks again redsid and best to all,

Luis

It's possible your media could be at fault. Why not try a different brand of DL media?

Thanks for the reply! I actually tried DVDs from two different batches (of same brand), as I ran out of one and had to order another. I used the same brand because it *seems* to be the best (as far as my little research told me). And I've burned three DVDs of the new batch without problems with the growisofs...

Thanks again,

Luis

I even had a problem like this with plain DVD's and when I changed brand they work flawlessly. Some drives don't work too well with some brands of media, so it's more of experimentation

Dual layer media is even more hit n miss
