Bug Description

I was instructed at Bug #405544 to report this as a separate bug, because I am using Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop amd_64. A fix has been issued for Lucid. I am hoping to see a fix for Karmic.

As reported 12/17/2009:
Add me to the list of folks who have trashed media trying up-to-date versions of both Brasero and GnomeBaker on Ubuntu 9.10. I have a new low-end HP desktop with a 16x DVD-/+RW drive, and I am using DVD-R media. I am just trying to burn 1 large (4GB) file to a data DVD. I have tried 16x and 4x. The message I get from both apps is:

:-[ WRITE@LBA=e0h failed with SK=5h/INVALID ADDRESS FOR WRITE]: Invalid argument
:-[ write failed: Invalid argument

btw... As a newbie, I had no idea before now that the information in the Bug Description is generated by a simple command called "apport" (also known as "ubuntu-bug.") Now I guess I wonder why each of us was not prompted to submit this level of detail when we clicked "Does this bug affect you?" Also, a link to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage might reduce the opacity of the Triage process (and hence the frustration) of beginners.

Hi Ron_,

If you could also please test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Jeremy. Thanks for responding.

I am a rank amateur using a single mission-critical machine, so forgive me if I am a bit nervous about this. Since this bug was already fixed in Lucid (#405544) and reported in Maverick (#669286), don't we already know the answer to whether it exists upstream?

Please do not close this bug. I have been watching the notices, and it was not supposed to expire for another couple of weeks. In the past few days, I posted notices in other places, hoping to drive others to this location.
