Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

I burned a data DVD on Brasero and I used 2x speed. The burn goes up to 100% and stops on fixating. Checking the processes, I see that Brasero is running and these...

Growisofs is running with these parameters.
growisofs-use-the-force-luke=notray-dvd-compat-speed=2-use-the-force-luke=tty-use-the-force-luke=tracksize:2047570-Z/dev/scd0-r-J-input-charsetutf8-graft-points-D-path-list/tmp/brasero_tmp_AlEv4N/brasero_tmp_I2NUBU-exclude-list/tmp/brasero_tmp_AlEv4N/brasero_tmp_3KNUBU-VData disc (24 May 08)-ABrasero-0.6.1-sysidLINUX-v

I also see that genisoimage is sitting as a zombie process.
 5853 ? Z 0:11 [genisoimage] <defunct>

I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy.

ii brasero 0.6.1-0ubuntu1 CD/DVD burning application for GNOME
ii dvd+rw-tools 7.0-7 DVD+-RW/R tools

Please help.


I expect it to burn my data disc correctly.

If I kill growisofs, Brasero reports that the burn succeeded, but my disc is unreadable.

Hey, thanks for reporting. Did you try only one DVD? Can you rule out a fault in the media, with other words. What is the make and model of your drive?

I tried 3 DVDs now called coasters. 1 of them stopped with an input/output error which was caused by DVD speeds higher than 2x. Two of them were coasters due to the fixating problem.

My drive is a writer included in my laptop, Acer Aspire 5920g. I'm not sure of the exact make on this. I suppose I could do dmesg in a few minutes.

Here's the output from my dmesg.

[ 8.904000] sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
[ 8.904000] Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20

This seems related to bug #354995
Though the error messages slightly differ, it seems to only affect DVDs, and not CDs.
The general description is that the burn seems successful up until the 99%, and then it gives some error.
