New external CD drive won't burn a CD

I bought a new CD drive. It plays CDs okay but I can't get it to burn CDs. K3B gives an error CD Record 254. Brasero says Internal Error. Would someone please help me get this thing to work? Thank you.

Re: X Session warning Unable to write to /temp(solved)

Mute Ant, how do I set the system to do a file system check every time?

I booted into recovery mode and I did a file system check. It still didn't boot normally I rebooted into recovery mode and I chose the clean option. After that the system booted normally.

Re: Do I have a battery problem? (Solved)

Hi,

As suggested, I unplugged it and let the power drain out. I plugged it back it in and it charged fully.

Thank you for your help!

Do I have a battery problem?

Hi,

The indicator on my laptop has been showing 89% for the last 3 days. The laptop is plugged in. Does this mean that I need to replace my battery or does this indicate some other problem?

Re: How to record a video to send via Youtube or Google Drive?

I recommended Cheese simply because it others no settings that might confuse him. Gucvview offers many setting that might confuse someone who says that they are "clueless about technology." Of course, the settings certainly do offer advantages.There is a version of it in the repositories too.

Re: How to record a video to send via Youtube or Google Drive?

You can install Cheese. I assume it's in the repositories for your installation. Just load it. It's self-explanatory. For Google Drive just upload the picture then right click on the video and you'll see an entry called Share. Select that. Try this page for You Tube. https://www.gcflearnfree.org/you...

Re: Sending a Fax using Wifi?

Thank you.
I guess Apple must have dedicated fax server because you can send a fax straight from the desktop using a Mac connected to Wifi.

Re: Problem with Installtion

Maybe things are different when you use Serena because I never see the option to install or boot along side of Windows. I have turned off Secure Boot and Legacy Boot off individually but still I don't see those options.

Backing up Thunderbird email

Hi,

I want to install Serena 18.1 KDE. I used Back In Time to backup my data and then I remembered that I hadn't backed up my email in Thunderbird.

Would someone please tell me how to do that?

Thank you.
