Nero3 or K3b on KDE4
I'm desperately trying to archive a dual-layer DVD and am having a dickens of a time.
I've burned single layer DVDs with the hardware and don't know why it wouldn't be working for Dual Layer work.
But neither of the mentioned apps has given me a successful result in burning the DL copy. k3b seems quite broken for KDE4, but Nero seems to work nicely for most things. I can create an .iso file easily. But burning seems always to fail and blank DVD+R DL's aren't cheap when you make coaster after coaster while experimenting with options...
System = openSUSE 11.1 with the KDE4.1.3 desktop (which I'm a hair's breadth from abandoning.. it seems almost useless really). I've installed KDE4-k3b and a fresh download of the Nero for Linux trial and since neither are successful, I'm wondering if it isn't mostly a problem with KDE.
The hardware is not weak, ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe with AMD Athlon 64 3000+
and 2Gb RAM and a Sony DWD22A 16x Dual Layer DVD+/- RW Recorder...
As I mentioned single layer burning seems to work OK
Any ideas why the dual layer copies would be such an issue?
Thanks for any help!
have you tried both apps on the same machine with a different desktop. Since nero also fails, i doubt it is a problem with KDE, since the desktop really shouldn't affect burning
It may be the drive, if the KDE4-k3b version fails. I use K3b on KDE 3.5.4 to burn DL discs all the time and have no problems with it at all, at least at 4x speed (my discs are 4-6x Verbatim). If you are burning faster than that, you might want to slow the burn down. Also, the disc brand makes a lot of difference. I have had nothing but trouble with Memorex, for example - not just on my current system, but on others with different burners as well.
