I have started having a problem with K3b
Am wondering if this problem is Perl related problem similar to the posting I did on 12 March ( http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,69281.0.html
The K3b problem is when i try to burn ISO's with new disks or ones that I have used for many months i get this message pop up "Found DVD-RW sequential media in ( drive details ) Should it be formated?
". If i click no the disk is ejected and the burn process stops. If i click yes the disk spins for a minute or two showing the formatting screen, then another message pops up, "Erasing Failed
", but the disk as been erased, it then spits the disk out, sucks it back in and starts to write to disk But very slow, and the device buffer fluctuates between 80% and 84% where as it was usually at 99%.
K3b is trying to format when it should be erasing, and just to check this out I went into Settings,Advanced Settings and checked the box Automatically erase CD-RW's and DVD-RW's, Then tried burning a ISO and as soon as the disk is detected by K3b it starts to attempt to format the disk.
Have been experimenting with Brasero but it doesn't recognise my DVD-RW so it looks like it will only burn DVD+RW disks. Is correct?
Any ideas please, especially from a Perl mastermind
Thanks in anticipation
