after using dvdshrink then making an iso growisofs still complains the iso is too large:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4682186752 Dec 23 10:20 MEETPARENTS.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4.4G Dec 23 10:20 MEETPARENTS.iso

<edit>
this was my silly mistake i did:

growisofs -Z /dev/hdd MEETPARENTS.iso

when it should have been:

growisofs -Z /dev/hdd=MEETPARENTS.iso
</edit>

Anyone help with this?
Why do I get the I/O error?

Code:

Here's a neat tip to test how the dvd will work (or won't) before even burning.

you need the loop module/feature

Code:

1) mount -o loop -t auto [iso] [mount_dir]
2) point software player to [mount_dir]

Thanks, thats a good test. Works ok, so I must have another problem. I can burn a data dvd ok using k3b so it must be something with the command itself?
:(

Code:
growisofs -Z /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd=/home/kamikaze_gerbil/media/dvd/filename.udf


edit Maybe not. If I try to burn an iso with k3b I get a similar error!

Sounds like a burner problem. Has it worked before? Hmm, with data -- well technically, the iso is data.

My bet would be that you need to try ATAPI support (instead of scsi.)

Hm. Even with buffer underun protection I have about 10 "lost" DVD (out of about 60) :(

I got a error message that the burner couldn't write to the disc, similar to that one posted above. I think the DVD mediums are of low quality because the error happened at 10% as well as at 98% of the medium.

Anyways, I disable xdm, cron, vmware before burning and it works fine!

Here it is:
Code:
*  app-cdr/dvd+rw-tools
      Latest version available: 5.13.4.7.4
      Latest version installed: 5.16.4.8.5
      Size of downloaded files: 71 kB
      Homepage:    http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/linux/DVD+RW/
      Description: A set of tools for DVD+RW/-RW drives.


If you do this:
Code:
emerge -s dvd

it will give you all the packages with dvd in the title, it is a long list but it useful.

Sounds like your medium isn't empty.

growisofs is "supposed" to auto blank the medium for you, but in your case, it isn't working.

try growisofs again, but instead target /dev/dvd when writing. I don't know if this will work, but it's worth a shot.

most likey growisofs isn't compatible with your burner yet, so I would suggest
trying cdrecord compiled with the dvdr USE flag enabled.

As I said above, sometimes I get the same error, at 10% of the medium as well as at 99% :(

I don't have a solution yet - I believe it's an error on the medium. Nevertheless I shut down X, cron and other "expensive" processes before burning...

yeah, um, I wasn't replying to you, SNo0py, I was talking to substance.

but, yeah, you shouldn't be running vmware while burning dvd's -- or anything else that cpu intensive while burning.

sony, eh? weird. I have the same drive (4x version.)

I'm using the latest kernel (2.6.1) with ATAPI support and have an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe mobo. I've never tried DVD burning with the 2.4 series (if that's what you're using) -- not sure if that's the deal, though. I'm guess something's just set up funky with your kernel.

Hi,

I came across this thread as I'm looking to burn DVD's in linux it's about the only thing left I have to boot into windows for. You might wanna look at

http://zebra.fh-weingarten.de/~maxi/html/transcode-users/2003-10/msg00253.html

which is a forum for this program

http://www.theorie.physik.uni-goettingen.de/~ostreich/transcode/[/url]

edit : just found this, I've not tried any of them, but it looks like support for this type of thing is improving now

you could try it! I've never had to do that, though.

what type of dvd medium are you burning to (dvd+rw?)

also, try emerging k3b -- it's a buring frontend that uses kdelibs, growisofs, cdrecord, and a buttload of other utilities. I think it's worth a shot.

There's an even easier way to do this if you have xine:

xine dvd://path to dvd files

I have some problems running dvdshrink in Wine.

I first tried to run Wine using my Windows setup on another partition. This trashed my Program Files directory, so I decided to try it another way.

When I run Wine without Windows, I can install dvdshrink, but when I run it and try to open the folder where dvdbackup put the DVD-content, it crashes.

So what is the preferred way to run dvdshrink through Wine? And how do I prevent these errors from occurring?

Any help will be highly appreciated!
