Hi Bill,
hope you'r doing well Smile

here using peasydisc 4.1 on wheezy-3.5.2.5;

Trying to burn a /mnt/sda2/myfolder whrerein I have copied a lot of files and folders, and selecting the Advanced thumbnail + drag and droping the /mnt/sda2/myfolder + Add to disc and Root folder checkboxes checked, I get the following comment:

Quote:

Press Enter


I got that kind of error using pBurn: look here

and got Zigbert's answer here
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=798207#798207

Any idea about how to solve this?
Many thanks in advance!
Best regards, Charlie

How many files are we talking about?

Are there any symlinks in the data you are burning? Some Googling suggests that can be a problem.

If you try to burn a smaller collection of data, does it work?

Is your objective to make a secure backup of this data? My instinct would be to archive it into a single file and burn it. I like Save Folder Backup for doing this.

Hi Bill,

thanks for reply!

That folder has about 25 sub-directories and ca 200 files in it/them.
Not any symlink.

My purpose is put aside datas from a damaged USB flashdrive by burning them together with other datas on an already burned cd. And afterwards to be able to access those files separately again. I believe that a Save Folder Backup mirrored file needs being restored before accessing only one given file.

I"ll get a try with a folder containig a smaller collection of datas.

Best regards
Charlie

True.

Try burning just one of the subdirectories.

Or try burning the whole directory to a new disc.

BTW, are you burning to a CD or DVD? In v4.1, I removed support for writing data to CDs.

If you want to continue using CDs, use Advanced > Make an ISO, then Basic > Burn an ISO. But you would have to use a new disc each time.

Hi Bill,

I'm trying to add and burn "myfolder" on an already burned DVD which free space is large enough regarding to "myfolders" size.

1)

Even trying to burn just one .gnumeric file failed ! Crying or Very sad

2) Examining the whole "myfolder" I deleted one symlink file; and also renamed 3 files having characters like ":" or "%"
Again on wheezy-3.5.2.5, a new attempt to burn this fixed "mylfoder" again failed !

3) Suspecting my wheesy-3.5.2.5 savefile to be somewhat corrupted/outdated (don't know... looks like I'm using it since year 2010 ... Confused ), I copied "myfolder" to another usb flash drive in order to burn it on another PC running on Tahrpup-6.0.6 + Peasydisc-4.1 installed.
Here, all went well at first attempt. So changing from my wheezy pupsave to Tahrpup did the trick - but I'm still ignoring the cause of the problem.

(see screenshot hereunder)
My purpose was to copy a maximum amount of files from a damaged usb flash drive (which reported input/output errors when copying/deleting/modifying files in it; as also has a part of dmaged files displayed with "kabalistik" characters as shown hereunder - this happened tree times on the very same usb flash drive over 3 years use, each time loosing some files - I suspect this usb drive as also a second one of same brand/capacity being unreliable)

Besty regards, Charlie

Trying to run corrupted data through the burn procedure is guaranteed to be a problem.

I suspect that by copying the data to another location, you cleaned up some of the corruption. So the burn worked.
