Weird problem

vbimport

#1

Please Insert the disk to write to…
Disk required for the compilation: CD-R/RW
Disk type in the recorder: CD-RW

check the attacked image.

I get this weird problem when I try to burn somthing on CD-R(W). I have tried different types of media, different CD-R types and different CD-RWs. I get the same message everytime I try to burn somthing either an image or a compilation in nero.

Help will be appreciated. :slight_smile:

OS: Slackware 10.1
Burner: NEC ND-3520


#2

I have the same Problem with DVD’s. Could be a Problem with the chipset.


#3

I just tryied with a NEC ND-3520A to burn 200MB of data in ISO on a CD-RW. Nothing weird happened. Media is correctly recognized and erased before burn process start.

Can you provide me the following infos:

  • kernel version (uname -a)
  • lspci dump so that I can see your IDE chipset reference and try to test it on the same machine.

#4

ya sure. I use slackware 10.1. It comes with unpatched 2.6.10 and that’s what I’m using right now.

And here is lspci’s output:

Note: as the screenshot shows, nero obviously can recognize my media, and I forgot to mention the other day that the CDRW I was using (in the screeny) was actually erased successfully using nero.


#5

What is the media your are using (manufacturer - type…) ? Is it always the same ?

So if I resume:

  • NeroLINUX can erase your CD-RW
  • NeroLINUX cannot write on it

I’m right ?


#6

At first I tried burning an image on a Sony CD-R using nero, but it didn’t work giving me the same thing above (you need CD-R to burn this. You have CD-R in drive.). Then I tried Sony and HP CDRWs without getting any different result. I was using a mini cdrw (Branded ‘Meloody’) when I took that screeny.

And you’re right. It erases the CD, but it won’t burn on it.


#7

So… What system permissions affect nero? I just tried burning somthing with root, it didn’t complain like it did before. It just burned it successfully.
I can burn as a normal user using all other *nix burning tools, makes me wonder why.


#8

Hummm… really weird. As if something was conflicting when NeroLINUX wanted to burn on the device. Normall RW perms on the /dev/hdX device corresponding to your recorder is sufficient.


#9

Permissions on my devices are sufficient. Nero shouldn’t have a problem if that’s the only thing it needs. And shouldn’t nero warn me about permission problems instead of that stupid message? It knows the drive contains a CD-R but it still asks me to put a CD-R in because it needs a CD-R… I’m puzzeled


#10

I’m still waiting for freedback. I’m ready if there is anything I can do to help in solving the problem. :slight_smile:


#11

Extrange situation :stuck_out_tongue:

If you can write with nero with root seems to be permissions.
You say that you cant write with other tools, probably cdrecord have the suid bit, so it runs with root permissions, look if cdrecord hace the suid bit on, you can search for it with:
find / -type f ( -perm -04000 ) -print


#12

I know my system well. cdrecord and cdrdao don’t have suid bit. I setup permissions on the device so that a user can write on the device without trouble. It works with everything i’ve tried except nerolinux. Myabe it’s trying to access a file it doesn’t have permissions to while it’s checking the media. I’m not going to use nero as root all the time…


#13

I’m sure that you know your system well, but the rest of us no, so I you don’t give all the information we have to ask for it to try to help your with your problem :\

Hello!

I’m experiencing similar problems with NeroLINUX 2.0.0.0 on Fedora Core 3. I tried to burn the DVD-ISO-Image of FC3 (FC3-i386-DVD.iso) on either DVD-R and DVD+RW. The message I got is that the required disk type is CD-R/CD-RW, which actually is a little bit too small for the 2.4 GB Image :wink: Other than reported I keep getting this message with root privileges as well. As I am in desperate need of the installation DVD, I hope that a solution for this problem has been found in the meantime! Some data of my machine:

I appreciate what you’re doing. I really do. But what was the infomation you needed and asked for and I didn’t provide? you can tell me :slight_smile:
Oh ya… The one about cdrecord permissions… (I said this before) I don’t have suid root on neither cdrecord(prodvd) nor cdrdao and I just double checked to make sure, not even growisofs and its associated tools.

Anything else? :slight_smile:


#16

Hello Indy05,
It’s weird that nero is asking for CD-R/CD-RW if you’re burning a DVD. I’m suspecting (and I could be wrong) that you havn’t chosen the correct “Medium type” in the recording options. Check it out and tell us :).



#17

Oh yes! You’re right! Thank you for your excellent help! Now it works perfect! In fact I didn’t expect those settings to take effect on burning an ISO-Image as the burning process always starts immediately after selecting an ISO-File… The great thing is it works, yeah!

Thank You!
Stefan


#18

A problem comparable to one I’ve posted recently:
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=131325

Now since it’s not just me complaining about those weired and confusing kind of settings causing funny problems I think they have to really improve the config-dialogs. :slight_smile:

I was having the exact same problem with dvds, I was wondering if anyone had been able to figure this out. If it helps anyone, I added my lspci output below. I was able burn a dvd with k3b without a problem. I am using Debian 2.6.10 “unstable”. I have tried to using different brands of dvd media, but to no avail. If anyone needs more information, let me know. (Also, I did change the format to DVD instead of CD, in case anyone thought that was my mistake).

I just tried it from root, and this time no error message. I guess something is wrong with my permissions, or the way nero looks at them. Any ideas what I need to change?
