K3B can't see my blank DVDs?

Postby deki999 on Sun Mar 29, 2009 6:47 am

I can't burn anything, because K3B can't see my blank DVDs, when I insert them.
He can, although, see RW DVD (not empty).

The line in fstab for DVD device looks like this:I
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 users,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

Help!

Not users - user
but that may be a typo when you posted
If that does not help start k3b from a terminal (caution - spell it right) to see if you get any error messages

Which DVDs you use is important and the thing is that different burners like different brands

Always the same.
Verbatim DVD-R.

I tried my 20 & some DVDs.
Two of them are readable.(I mean blank, but can be mounted)

I will try DVDs on other machine, or try other DVD device.
Either device or discs are bad !
I'm sooooo angry...

Mint is ok, I supose.

I read in another topic about k3b that you might have to specify what you burn on - tell k3b it's DVD not CD and possibly + and -
as well as R or RW
