Hi everyone.
I recently upgraded to FC2, and had a few problems with the ripping speed of my combination dvd/cd-rw drive, which were solved by turning down the level of cd paranoia. Before (and now after) I made changes (including an hdparm line) to the cd reader, I had been having problems with the cd writer. When I run the cdrecord command, it hangs with no errors listed. I tried k3b to copy a cd, and the ripping worked fine and then it hung when starting the burn. Looking at the discs, the burner has done something to the surface, but after more than an hour, no progress had been made according to the progress bar. When I click cancel, k3b hangs, and I have to reboot in order to be able to open the cd drive.
Thanks in advance.
