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 ...

Re: [not solved- giving up] Need help with burning multi-session DATA discs

Hi, You guys have the patience of a saint. In my case the patience is a requisite for technical curiosity. I want to know what's going wrong with other people's burn runs. Burning DVD is not black science. It is the fight against mad drives, poorly stored media, the perils of rotating mechanics, and...

Re: [not solved- giving up] Need help with burning multi-session DATA discs

Hi, phd21: Please provide the exact xorriso command can I execute to close the session for the disc? There is none. The session gets closed by xorriso automatically. It leaves the medium appendable by default. If you want to make it unwritable use xorriso command -close "on". (If you use command -co...

Re: [not solved- giving up] Need help with burning multi-session DATA discs

Hi, i wrote: mkdir "$HOME"/xorriso_test xorriso -osirrox on -indev /dev/sr1 -extract / "$HOME"/xorriso_test It comes to me that if the DVD is mounted, xorriso will throw a "drive in use" error. So my proposal should have included the -osirrox setting "o_excl_off", which prevents this test at the pri...

Re: [not solved- giving up] Need help with burning multi-session DATA discs

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...

Re: [not solved- giving up] Need help with burning multi-session DATA discs

Hi, the proposal to look for BIOS updates came from phd21. I don't upgrade BIOS or firmwares, because normally you get .exe programs for that purpose and i am 100 % microsoft-free. A laptop drive from 2014 or older is one of the main suspects for causing failures. I didn't notice any problems with a...

Hi, > But the discs are "empty". Which software says ? Where the discs out of the drive and put in again ? (The Linux kernel is quite blind for the activities of burn programs.

Re: Need help with burning multi-session DATA discs

Hi, the usual GUI burn programs on GNU/Linux demand the user to import the existing session from the medium in the drive (exception is my xorriso-tcltk, which is a demo of how a xorriso GUI could look like). Further the GUIs demand the user to explicitely order to keep the medium appendable. http://...

Re: Xfburn: Burnfree option- what does it do?

Hi,

so how about this:

"Disable Burnfree only if you need flawless audio recording and thus prefer
complete burn failure over a successful burn with possible small flaws."

Have a nice day :)

Re: Xfburn: Burnfree option- what does it do?

Hi, "burnfree" is a name for "Buffer Under-run Free Recording", as described im MMC specs for Mode Page 05. It applies only to CD-R, unformatted CD-RW, DVD-R, and unformatted DVD-RW (MMC-5, table 665). DVD+R, BD-R, and overwritable media (e.g. DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, BD-RE) are not prone to buffer underrun...

Re: Brasero error 2856 bug, again, and again

Hi, the number "2856" is not an error diagnosis code but simply a line number in the source of Brasero, where it issues the general message "Session error". See: https://sources.debian.org/src/brasero/3.12.2-6/libbrasero-burn/brasero-burn.c/#L2856 So many different problems can cause the message wit...

Re: Creating a bootable DVD in Linux mint

Hi, the message about the SCSI error stems from libburn. It would be interesting to see it literally, because it may give more hints what is wrong. In general, this kind of error indicates a bad relationship between drive and medium. The standard advise is to try other media or to try another drive....
