SOLVED: Mint 17.1 XFCE won't burn to USB DVD

Post by Fox7799 »

Previously I could burn DVD's on my Asus USB DVD burner with Mint XFCE but something changed on the latest updates so it starts briefly and then stops making the disc unusable. Any help or hint would be appreciated. Hopefully this is fixed in Mint XFCE 17.2. Thanks.

I have tried xfburn, k3b and brasero. Following is the log from brasero:

In my experience Brasero has always caused problems and I have stuck to K3B. However the discs that always work for me are DVD+R or DVD+RW, what discs are you using.

I have been using DVD-R but they have always worked well in the past. Why would they be a problem now? I wonder has there been a change in the software to make this a problem? Thanks

I think you will find that -r or -rw are the problem, but I am not sure why. Several of my customers have had the same problem with - dvds but changing to + has solved the problem. Perhaps this link may explain a bit better.

I am convinced this Asus A7D0AD013266 USB DVD R/W burner manufactured July 2010 has a hardware problem since I keep getting an input/output error when I try to burn no matter what computer I try it on or what Linux distro I try. I can still boot a DVD on it however. Various posts describe how these burners don't last forever and occasionally it is time to get a new one. Samsung has a nice one for around $23, details at http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SE-208DB- ... e+external .
