Hi,
i'm willing to burn a dvd iso image using k3b 2.0.2 and my dvd burner but after a while dvd is ejected and k3b mentioning a "problem" .

How can i know what is the problem ?

it seems there's a log file at ~/.kde4/share/apps/k3b> cat lastlog.log
see details here : http://pastebin.com/4bgzwcnh

but it gives me no more clue than :

[cdrecord] Beginning DMA speed test. Set CDR_NODMATEST environment variable if device
[cdrecord] communication breaks or freezes immediately after that.

and
[cdrecord] /usr/bin/wodim: WARNING: Could not manage to find medium size, and more than 90 mins of data.

is this helping you ?

is there a better log file ?

Any other way to know more about what this problem can be ?

md5 sum of the iso is ok

dvd is -rw

k3b is :
$ k3b --version
Qt: 4.7.4
KDE Development Platform: 4.7.2 (4.7.2) "release 5"
K3b: 2.0.2

OS is opensuse 12.1

thanks for any tips or ideas on this ;)

It seems that CDRecord/Wodim is having some problems interacting with your Optical drive. I would suggest ensuring that no other programs (such as UDisks or HAL, or Multimedia players) are attempting to access the drive at the same time.

Another thing worth checking would be that the drive's connectors inside the computer are well seated.

Have you tried switching to growisofs as the burning backend? I tend to have less trouble with it personally.

No i have not changed the burning backend.

I saw an error while booting this morning with driver ata_piix which seems the one used for my dvd burner , i don't know yet if the dvd, forgotten and still in the drive, was the problem or if it's a real problem

I googled the error message and found evidence that people with a similar problem reported success burning at lower speeds. Have you tried it?

it seems i have a driver problem (not found error ) :
# lsmod | grep ata
ata_generic 12809 0
pata_jmicron 12651 0
linux-121:~ # modprobe ata_piix
FATAL: Module ata_piix not found.
FATAL: Error running install command for ata_piix

haven't tried a different speed though, i'll try this also

You can chose the speed in a drop-down menu as soon as you clicked on the iso. If I remember correctly it is somewhere middle right and is aptly entitled "speed" :)

Oh, sorry, misunderstanding. As stated above I have no idea - I just googled and told you that others reported success when using a slower speed... Over and out.
