Re: Xfburn and DVD+R/+RW [RESOLVED]

Here is what I mean.

  • I insert a blank DVD+RW in the burner (LG GH22NP20 on /dev/sr0)

  • I launch Xfburn

  • I add some files to burn, 6.05 MB of data

  • Xfburn shows it is going to burn data on a 200 MB CD instead of a 4.7 GB DVD

  • I click on the burn button

  • Xfburn starts formating the media

  • Xfburn writes data to the media (SAO mode)

  • Xfburn closes the session

  • Media is ejected

  • I reinsert the media in order to read its content

Here's what I get from the system :

Failure to mount DVD+RW along with this information :

Method "Mount" with signature "ssas" on interface "org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" doesn't exist
.

Additionnally, when I look at Preferences (maybe settings in English) from Edit menu here are what Xfburn tells me about my burners :

GH22NP20 :

  • Node /dev/sr0

  • CD-R checked

  • CD-RW checked

  • DVD-R checked

  • DVD-RAM checked

No mention of DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW

GMA-4020B :

Same as above except for Node which is /dev/sr1. Please note that I can burn DVD-RW using this device though it is not shown in the settings under Edit menu.

Additionnal info

Somehow I can burn DVD+RW with K3B or simply using growisofs command when using GH22NP20.

After you have added files to a project on the bottom right you will see "200mb". This is actually a pull down/up menu to select the media type your burning to. Being a + or - should make no difference.

In other words I have to select the right media from that pull down/up menu, haven't I ?

As you add data to a project the media type will "increase" from 200mb cd up to a dual layer dvd. You mentioned you added only 6.05mb so it defaulted to 200mb cd so just select the disc type you want (dvd?) and it should burn to it?

You're right.

I retried making sure I selected DVD from the list and it worked just fine.

Thank's for your help.
