CD not buring

Postby gbouchar on Tue Dec 02, 2008 7:06 pm

I run Linuxmint Flux edition since about 4 weeks. This distro is the more suited to myself and my computer i have found to date. I can do about anything i want (camera, photo, sound, ....).

To day, i tried to burn an iso file. Can't do it. Brasero detect my cd (HL-DT-ST GCE-8320B) but said my disk is full when trying to do the job. The disk is brand new (i tried a few ones). I tried XFCEburn. This one tell me the job is done in 1/10 seconds. It's not done. I reboot into my XP partition (not used since 4 weeks!) and i could burn my iso file.

Where can i look?

Like i said, the cd is detected (i can read from it) but burning is not possible.

Thanks!

This is odd.
I don't have a clue right now and not the time to investigate so I have to come back to you
I have seen a few reports of this kind, but it is not a common problem

Did you check your logfiles in /var/log?
Mostly if linux notice errors it will write to a logfile, like /var/logs/messages or /var/log/system.
Just start a burning a session and see if the date-time stamp on a file changes and look in that file at the bottem. See if you find something usefull or post on the forum.

Thinking of this i vote for a eventviewer alike application which shows the most important log files :wink:

There is one - look for System log in the menu (at least in Elyssa and Felicia)
I agree that the logs is something to look into but in this case I'm not sure it is something that's logged....

Is this a CD-RW?
It may be closed and need to be blanked before you can write
