    Input/Output error recording DVDs with k3b


    As the title says, i get Input/Output error every time I try to record a DVD with k3b.
    However, I don't have any problems recordng CDs.

    Could I have anything to do with me running it on a 2.4.29 kernel (slackware 10.1 default)?

    Does kernel 2.6 have better suport for dvd recording? should I change?

    Thnx!

    Yeah, you betta believe it!

    Yes, the problem is probabilly your kernel (or your recorder...) but never k3b (cause it dont even burn, just a front end, cdrecorder do everything).
    You may use the 2.6.x series or try in other OS and see if it is not a recorder problem (try FreeBSD, the only with REAL recording) and if you get no error msg, it is the kernel, if you ge, i am sorry for you recorder

    Oh, and make sure you have the dvd-rw+tools instaled and confugured (it is common to forget tham:P)

    That problem was fixed, the new problem is that I allways get this eror when trying to record a DVD.

    Code:
    :-( unable to PREVENT MEDIA REMOVAL: Operation not permitted
    i've read about this problem on some web-pages, but didn't find a way to solve it.

    any ideas?!
