Bug Description

7.04 does not seem to recognize my cd/dvd burner as a burner. It works fine as a reader but it won't burn. I have attempted to get help with this on the forums (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=434443) but no one seems to have any suggestions. There is another user reporting the same issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am new to Linux..

Anyway, I ran "sudo hdparm /dev/hdc" in a terminal session and got this result:

/dev/hdc:
IO_support = 0 (default 16-bit)
unmaskirq = 0 (off)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
HDIO_GETGEO failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device

I also did "/usr/lib/nautilus-cd-burner/list_cddrives" with the following result:

Thanks you for you report

Can you talk about your hardware specifications ?

When you insert a black disk Does Ubuntu ask if you want to make a CD ?

Here are the specifications for my system. It is a stock HP Media
Center m7330n. I took these directly from HP's site. As for prompting
me when I insert a blank disk, I do not get prompted unless I tell
Ubuntu to mount the disk. If I try to burn a disk, I get this message:

There was an error writing to the disc:
Error while writing to disc. Try a lower speed.

I have tried to burn a 1.0x speed with the same result.

I can't burn anything independent of media used and speed. Same burner works fine under openSUSE 10.2 where it is handled as IDE device (/dev/hdc). Related to this: There are no burning problems with Feisty on a 5 year old laptop where the burner (Toshiba ... - no detailed information right now) is handled as IDE device (/dev/hdc) as well.

I'd similar situation as bierholen. After I upgrade from 6.10 to 7.04, all IDE devices are recognized as serial device, e.g. harddisk becomes "sdaX", dvd-writer becomes "scd0". When I try to burn CD with the build-in program, it can finish writing image file, and burn for a little while (less then 10%). Then, it will report "Error while writing to disc. Try a lower speed.". No matter how slow the speed I choose, it still fails. Here is the spec of my laptop:

I'm also having this problem since I upgraded to 7.04. No problems previously nor in Windows even now.
In the forum some people report that the problem solved after the last kernel update but that's not my case. I've also tried a different kernel (i386 instead of generic, ie x86x64 in my case) without joy.

When I upgraded from 6.06 to 7.04, I'm having errors burning CDRs. The hardware hasn't changed at all between version upgrades, so I don't think hardware is the issue. At first I thought it might be wodim, since that's replaced cdrecord. However, I switched to cdrdao and am still having problems.

I was having a similar problem with an IDE CD burner, it wouldn't erase
a CD-RW from k3b or wodim on the command line. However, when I connected
up an external USB burner it worked fine. Don't know if this helps shed
any light on the problem. Relevant sections from lshw are below, I can
provide more info if it's wanted.

Cannot write a DVD+R with Hardy (8.04) on a Sony Vaio VGN-A270P. It worked in Gutsy (7.10). Just finished another attempt to write a DVD - system current with updates. Attached the session.log.

I also have this problem in Hardy / Intrepid / Jaunty on Advent 6001 laptop with QSI SDW 082 drive.

Is it not possible to mount this drive as IDE without SCSI emulation?

No-one seems able to help.

I am having the same problem on Jaunty, it seems this bug isn't hardware specific.
Looked everywhere, tried everything ... big waste of time...
This is a very old bug, and no one seems to be doing anything about it.

As I read on the forums for some people a kernel update helped. Which CD writers do you use and what kernel do you run? Thank you for telling us!
