Re: How to burn a bootable Win 10 Dual-layer DVD in Mint?

Hi, if the burner can do Blu-ray, why not get a pack of BD-RE which are re-usable and offer plenty of space ? Nothing would be wasted if a try goes wrong. You may inquire the drive for supported medium types (actually usage models) by xorriso -outdev /dev/sr0 -list_profiles If it is a BD burner, it ...

Re: Don't understand instructions to burn install image to dvd

Hi, the shortcomming in the DVD part of the burn.html document is not to explain which of the three burn opportunities (*) should be used in Linux. The desired effect of seeing the files in the ISO after burning could be achieved by the right method and by one of the wrong methos. Right is: Burn Ima...

Re: Rip DVD to ISO file

Hi, if the DVD is not specially copy protected, it should be possible to create an image file on hard disk by this shell command: dd if=/dev/sr0 bs=2048 status=progress of=my_dvd_image.iso Whether the resulting file "my_dvd_image.iso" deserves its suffix ".iso" depends on the filesystem type of the ...

Re: Major Downside to Linux Mint

Hi, audio CDs cannot be mounted by the Linux kernel, because they bear no data blocks of 2048 bytes each, and because their audio blocks contain no filesystem. It is of course not normal that GUI programs just get stuck without telling a reason. Did you wait at least 2 minutes before you aborted it ...

Re: DVD not recognised by linux mint xfce 19.3

Hi, your description looks much like a hardware problem. Drive and media seem to be at odds. Maybe we can learn something from the log of SCSI transactions which libburn performs with the drive in order to assess its medium status. For this purpose install package "xorriso", insert a blank DVD into ...

Re: transforming ISO files

Hi, for the records: The Antix ISOs are prepared for booting from both, DVD and USB stick via PC-BIOS or EFI firmware. Putting them on DVD is done by GUI burn programs with tasks named "Burn Image" or alike. On the command line (of a shell terminal): xorriso -as cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 blank=as_nee...

Re: Burning rewritable DVDs

Hi, given the behavior of Xfburn and Brasero i guess that the DVD-RW was formatted and that Brasero deformatted it whereas Xfburn would have preferred to keep the formatted state. The result of fast blanking DVD-RW is a medium which can only be written by write type DAO. I.e. no multisession possibl...

Hi, i am not aware that the usual GUI programs would offer you to remove already existing files from the directory tree of the new session. xorriso can do it by its commands -rm for single files or -rm_r for whole directory subtrees. For example remove files /my/file.pdf /my/other_file.pfd and add t...

Re: Problems trying to burn an ISO to a DVD disc

Hi, your report would need more tangible info, which is not easy to gather with a GUI program. A busy drive indicates that the device file of the drive is in use by another program, which has used the O_EXCL flag to indicate that it does not want the medium to be written (if it's mount(8)) or to be ...

It leaves the medium appendable by default. If you want to make it unwritable use xorriso command -close "on". (If you use command -co...

Hi, phd21: "xorriso" from the console terminal prompt did allow me to add new session data and recognized previous multi-sessions. So the drive you use is able to do multi-session. The problems with the GUIs may come from inner problems to properly operate the backend or from being too complicated f...
