    Just curious... have you tried starting your burning apps from within a terminal to see if you could get a more detailed error message?

    What happens if you try burning your DVD directly from the command line? Any error messages?

    Here's a good HowTo with instructions for doing so:

    when i tried to burn DVD RW using K3B or gnomebaker i got the following error

    attempt to re-run with -dvd-compat -dvd-compat to engage DAO or apply full blanking procedure
    Write error

    then i tried using the following command

    cdrecord -format dev=/dev/hdc speed=4 gracetime=2

    i got the following as output

    [simran@localhost ~]$ sudo cdrecord -format dev=/dev/hdc speed=4 gracetime=2
    wodim: No such file or directory.
    Cannot open SCSI driver!
    For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
    For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
    For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
    the wodim documentation.

    next i tried

    wodim --devices
    and got the output

    [simran@localhost ~]$ wodim --devices
    wodim: Overview of accessible drives (1 found) :
    0 dev='/dev/scd0' rwrw-- : 'SONY' 'DVD RW DW-G120A'

    and then

    [simran@localhost ~]$ wodim -scanbus

    what else should i do to make it work
