Description Richard Jasmin 2015-09-24 18:39:52 EDT
Description of problem:
ok, this is more of a glitch.
When more than one drive to burn with is present, one cannot spawn multiple instances of burning application to write ISOs from.In theory and practice this should and DOES in fact work, you are only stressing the source medium.

So heres the rub.You have two ISO files to burn and two drives to burn with.You want to spawn two instances but it doesnt work.What happens is that the second spawned process wants to grab the already burning drive in use, and spews and error message constantly until the drive is no longer writing.

nevermind the annoying blank media pop-ups.

What it should be doing is fetching the drive NOT in use and proceeding to burn.

You have to launch another application.K3B, brasero, whatever. I happen to have imgburn.


And imgburn really only by happenstance on fedora.
Try to use it on debian, even thru wine and for some reason it cant find any burner.Id love to know what you did to wine to make this happen.

No, I am not attempting to disc juggle here one ISO to many drives.I reserve a copy of discjuggler just for that purpose.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
discovered in 22

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get some ISOs from somewhere
2.try to en mass burn them(need more than one burner)

Additional info:
I the used the Fedora 23 Beta.Both arch at once.
