I'll try my luck in this forum. Got no response in the software forum.
My DVD writer is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-116D, recognised as such by the system.
Drakbackup tells me the drive is not writeable and it sees it as a ROM device.
Using K3b to write a 1.1MB file to a blank DVD+R:
- Writing successfully completed
- Verifying data
- Overall progress stuck at 50%
- Verifying track 0 stuck at 0%
- No disc activity
I gave up and cancelled after 15 minutes. The disc was written.
I was able to write a smaller amount of initial data to a CD-R as multisession yesterday using K3b.
Trying to make a live CD failed. After an hour I was still looking at lines of meaningless figures in a konsol.
Am I doing something wrong?
