K3B and large files?

Mon Mar 15, 2010 2:46 pm
Hello there,

I just ruined two double layer DVDs when I tried
to copy my "7 Samarai full HD" 5.7 GB AVI to DVD.

Both times, burning went "OK", but then k3b
couldnt finalize the disc.

Is there anythign special I need to do for
a) double layer discs (burned some without problems before)
b) such large files?

No, you don't have to do anything special, it should just work (tm).
A couple of questions:
  1. What k3b version do you use?
  2. What do you mean by "couldn't finalize disk"? Have it hanged up or some error popped up?
  3. Have you saved a debugging output? If not, you can find the last one here: $(HOME)/.kde4/share/apps/k3b/lastlog.log.

a) K3B says: Version 1.68.0
b) According to the output I remember - burning reached 100%,
so all content arrived at the disk; but the final step that
"fixes"/finalizes/whatevers-i-dont-remember the disc ... failed.
c) my "last log" is from my a successfull "burn" I made afterwards.
As a double layer disc is somewhat expensive I am somewhat hesitant
to repro the failure ...

Anything else I could do to help?

Schrotted another DL DVD today ... then I figured I check the bugs database. And voila; there is one that describes a problem with k3b 1.68

According to the bugs database it is fixed; but it seems that none of the kubuntu PPA repositories contains a newer version than 1.68

Now I hope that brasero works better.

OK; and brasero did cost me another DVD. It seemed to ran fine; and in the end there was an error message about "probably some files not right".
So I upgraded my ubuntu to the latest backports KDE ... and then I was able to install the lucid lynx version of k3b (1.69).

That one passed the first check (insert a already-written double layer DVD, tools->copy ... immediately fails with 1.68). So, I am trying again. Hopefully not killing another DVD:

For working large file support you need to use the
original mkisofs instead of the broken fork.
