I did two tests (with a fresh DVD-R in the drive):

with burniso2cd
I tried to burn an ISO-file with burniso2cd. This fails with no messages. The DVD drive does nothing and the program asks if it should verify the disc. No data is written on the DVD.

with PBurn
I tried to burn the same ISO with (and without) the "dummy" option. This fails too.

When I use the dummy-option, the log file looks like this:

Code:

Pburn version 3.7.18

I had similar troubles burning large files until I started copying them to /tmp first. How much RAM have you?

I have 512MB RAM (you asked that already on page#134).

The following observations speak against the RAM theory:

- I can burn such large files to CD-RW with no problems.
- I tried to burn two very small files (a *.txt and a *.bmp with 4KB or so) which fails with the same error messages
- the writing process fails BEFORE a single bit is written to the DVD

It seems the main problem is that burniso2cd and PBurn both think that the DVD-R in the drive is not a valid medium.

I tried two different DVD-R discs. After the Puppy Linux PC refuses to write, I took them to my DVD videorecorder and burned them both. The videorecorder has no problems recognizing and burning them.

The question is: Is it a bad drive that cannot recognize the media and reports "bad disc"? Or is it the DVD-R or is it the software?

And there we are at the beginning again. Smile

@Semme: Basically this is a good idea. But to be honest, I'm not going to move heaven and earth to find out why the DVD-Rs don't work on that particular computer. I think I can live with it. Nonetheless... thanks for your ideas. Smile

That's fine. Not that I was following too closely but, did you ever mention the brands involved?

The version of genisoimage on 5.6.1? I'd maybe downgrade or try the /tmp trick Flash posted..

No. I never metioned the brands. The blank DVD-R are from "Real". (This is a department store chain in germany and they have their own label. Not sure if they are only in germany.)

The DVD-Drive is an internal drive in a notebook. It's a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L1300 notebook. Maybe they're using Toshiba drives or so. I'm currently sitting at another computer so I can't find out.

Sorry, I didn't see your answer the first time I asked about RAM.

It sure sounds like the burner is the problem. About the only other thing I can think to do is update its firmware. I believe this mainly makes the burner recognize more kinds of media. Updating firmware can most likely only be done from within Windows, but there may be a way to do it from within Puppy. You'll have to find out the burner's make and model number (Menu -> System -> Hardinfo -> Storage) then go to the manufacturer's website and see how to update its firmware.

^ Yes, I guess so too. But honestly I don't want to go risk updating the firmware and having it brick. The most important feature of the drive is that it can read all kinds of media. And it can even write CD-R(W). That's not to be sneezed at.

For the DVD-R backup-thing I'll find another solution. I think an 8GB USB stick will be sufficient.

Thanks for all the help. Very Happy

PostPosted: Thu 01 Aug 2013, 04:19    Post subject: path with spaces fails  

Hello Sigmund

I have an issue burning my win7 image.

Here is the path (in a subdir with spaces Rolling Eyes )
Code:
/mnt/sda1/Users/Mick/Downloads/Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1 (x64) - DVD (English)/en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676939.iso


The stock standard PBurn command to burn is this:
Code:
growisofs -use-the-force-luke=notray   -Z /dev/sr0=\"/mnt/sda1/Users/Mick/Downloads/Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1 (x64) - DVD (English)/en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676939.iso\"


It fails. Pburn just quits with no error message. Immediately I suspected the space in the path.

If I change the command to
Code:
 growisofs -use-the-force-luke=notray   -Z /dev/sr0='/mnt/sda1/Users/Mick/Downloads/Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1 (x64) - DVD (English)/en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676939.iso'
(replacing \" with ' ) it works as expected.

Thanks.

It is not the spaces, but the ) and ( that makes trouble for gtkdialog.

The \" is not a part of the final burn-command, and I guess it will work for you with either ' or ".

I tried to detect the actual problem, but a simple script works as expected, so again it is probably bad pid-handling by me. I have made a workaround and documented it well inside the code. pBurn has a codebase I don't want to touch too much. I rewrite as little as possible when fixing bugs. - Since it is a hardware-related code it requires a lot of testing if I touch the core...

Will upload 4.0.4 soon, but I have to evaluate some input from gcmartin before next release.


Thank you for reporting
Sigmund

Both pBurn and pMusic has quit using the Puppy specific gtkdialog binaries - gtkdialog1, gtkdialog2, gtkdialog3, gtkdialog4.
It only looks for gtkdialog. The reason:
1.) Troublesome when depending on a gtkdialog-compile from svn which not has got a Puppy specific numbering.
2.) It will (in my eyes) be logical to link gtkdialog to the most recent binary, and this will work for pBurn/pMusic.
3.) The Puppy-way of doing this is not required - how I see it.
