    k3b no longer works, input/output error

    Hello everyone.
    I am using I am using mandriva 2005 le. kernel 2.6.11-6mdk
    I have been using k3b no probs. Then today i go to back up my data onto a dvd and it won't work. I click burn as usual and then i get ' write failed: Input/output error' and below it 'fatal error at startup input/output error'

    I get the same thing with different dvd-r and dvd-rw Its weird as it was working fine last time and I haven't changed anything.

    I clicked show debugging output and this is what it gave me

    I have tried burning cds as well and they start burning but crash halfway through. As with the dvd's its only started happening today.

    I have tried logging on as root and burning but get the same results.
    I have rebooted the computer, no luck there either.
    Also tried burning with nautilis and also got input/output error
    Interestingly enough the burner still reads fine so am I correct in thinking this a software problem?

    Can anyone please help with this?
    Makes it a bit hard to upgrade my distro if I can't backup my data.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I am a newbie and so don't know much.Try using Brasero.It is a good burner software.

    herbu, this thread is more than 3 years old so it's highly probable that any posters have worked out any issues by now.
