I was able to reproduce your exact error by trying to burn the ISO over top of the original disc.

I suspect that you didn't have the correct Optical Drive set for the burn phase of the operation.

PeasyDisc v1.6 introduces a tool for building DVD slideshows. Look for it under the Video1 tab. You give the program a set of JPEG images and it glues them into an MPEG video. You can then optionally burn the video to DVD.

Things to note:

1. You must also install the peasydisc_extras-1.1.pet attached below.

2. Slideshow Builder uses /usr/bin/dvdauthor, but the version in Wary is broken. Get a working version from another Puppy like Lupu.

3. If you plan to run the slideshow on a computer screen or through a digital projector, you may get better results using the SLIDESHOW.VOB instead of the DVD disc. There may be a difference in aspect ratio between the two. Or experiment with "normal" versus "wide" mode to find the best display for your output device.

Please test. I would like to know how it works with different DVD players and TVs, particularly PAL systems and widescreen displays.

See the discussion here about using PeasyDisc to create a YouTube clip of an audio track. Here is a quick recipe.

1. Under Basic, set up an Output Folder.
2. Go to Video1.
3. Set "Seconds per frame" to the length of the MP3. You can find its length by running the Check a Clip function under Video3.
4. In "Audio track", select your MP3 file.
5. In "Add a JPEG image", select your background JPEG.
6. Click New, Add, and Build.
7. Click View and locate the SLIDESHOW.VOB file.
8. Make the clip compatible with YouTube
Code:
ffmpeg -i SLIDESHOW.VOB -vf scale=320:240 youtube.avi

PeasyDisc v1.7 introduces support for Blu-ray burning. There are several caveats. YMMV.

1. Use the same tools as for DVDs.

2. The first burn to a Blu-ray disc may end with an error message. Provided that the job got to 100%, the message is harmless.

3. Burning very large files from a USB hard drive can be problematic - the job may terminate prematurely. Unfortunately, ROX will report that the burned file has the same size as the original. Use the cmp command to verify the burn.

4. There are two conflicting versions of the optical writing toolkit used by PeasyDisc. Your Puppy may need a small update.

a. Upup Raring works OOTB with Blu-ray.
b. For Slacko, install the growisofs_slacko56-7.1.pet
c. For Fatdog, install the growisofs_fd620-7.1.pet

I just had a need to grab a puppy iso off a CD that I burned a few years ago and could not remember how to do it (dd command perhaps??) so I tried Peasy cd tools but it doesn't have that option. Would it be difficult / valuable to add such a function?

What would that function be called? "Rip iso from disc" maybe?

EDIT :I did find the answer I needed here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=76125&sid=06417b593f3fe08d37f8c2d425f7d156
but I think it would still be a nice function to add in to peasy disc tools if poss.

Yes. It's already there, under the Advanced tab.

I was referred to this thread.

Any chance of a version of PeasyDisc for Lighthouse64-602b, please?

I've been waiting for OpenShot but 2.0 isn't due for completion and release until December at the earliest - then has to be compiled for LH64.

Avidemux is available for LH64 doesn't want to play nicely.

Thanks!

Good morning.
Do you feel like helping me with pBurn?
Please excuse; I realize this is not strictly about PeasyDisc.

Please see
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=23881&start=2055 ,
about 1/4 of the page from the bottom. In the pBurn thread under Multimedia.
I asked there about my problem with computer "hanging" after burning a data CD-RW.

I made reference to zigbert's thread under
Advanced Topics -> Cutting edge, called
"pBurn ask you to do ONE test-burn"
I happened across it, and somehow discovered my hanging/freezing problem.

Today, at 02:14 AM. zigbert said:

Hmmm
Do we know the burning command used in Peasydisc ?

Many thanks,

FYI, as a diagnostic tool, I have used rcrsn51's peasydisc.

Please describe step-by-step exactly what you are doing in PeasyDisc.

What Puppy version are you using?

Did it work the way you wanted?

Oh, thank you very much for such a quick response!
Can I get back to you a little later; it was a couple of days ago, and I'd need to do it again to get the steps.

Anyhow, PeasyDisc did give the 'Press enter' or whatever, after burning and fixating the disc, so that I could exit that.
Whereas pBurn 4.20 does not.
Maybe the version of cdrecord?

Before continuing, I need a clear answer to this. Did the disc you burned with PeasyDisc work in your player? Could you play the MP3s?

Yes, thank you. It was a version prior to the PeasyDisc 2.5

Just installed ver 2.5 under Lucid Puppy (no savefile) 5.2.8.6
Started PeasyDisc, changed device to sr1, blanked the 4X CD-RW disc, (from perhaps a decade ago, "k Hypermedia").
Got the "Press Enter" prompt, did so, got the PeasyDisc main menu.
Ejected and reloaded the disc.

Clicked the Advanced tab, and browsed to a folder of MP3s, clicked OK.
Clicked New Disc
Clicked Write
"Are you writing to a CD?"
Clicked Yes.
It did some burning, and then said
Quote:

Fixating time: 77.158s
cdrecord: fifo had 1499 puts and 1499 gets.
cdrecord: fifo was 0 times empty and 1381 times full, min fill was 90%.

Press Enter


I did press Enter.
The Sony CD-RW CRX140E ejected the disk.

I put it into my living-room DVD/CD/CD-RW player, and closed the tray.
First it said
Quote:
LOAD
, for about 15 seconds, then it said
Quote:
MP-3
, and played the first file. No doubt it'll play all of them.

Thanks,
Sheldon
