Can't Burn CD on portable USB CD-R/RW drive TDK PCD8824u2
All my attempts to burn a CD on my external CD burner fail...
I am using k3b on a laptop, running Fedora Core 3 on a
2.6.9-1.667 kernel (on the newer kernels the network driver
does not work).
When I try to burn the CD as a normal user the burner signals
"write" and nothing happens; trying the same as root
the desktop freezes and I have to reboot...
I don't have any idea how to proceed in order to find the
reason of this misbehavior and would be glad about any
(By the way - I also tried to backup using a new external USB
hard disk and rsync - and got tons of the following errors:
rsync: stat "/media/usbdisk/backups/[...snip...]" failed:
No such file or directory (2)
probably this is not related, but...)
