Description Stan Wong 2004-09-04 12:04:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
k3b can not auto-detect what speed my Samsung DVD SH-W08A operates at
under kernel-2.6.8-1.251.  k3b detects the drive correctly and
attempts to write to the disk but immediately gets an error and
aborts.  If I reboot using kernel-2.6.7-1.494-2.2 then the drive works

I used k3b version 0.11.14 and an earlier version (can't remember
which) but both behave the same.

The system uses an Athlon 1.4GHz+ mobile CPU.  FC2 was updated to the
latest released packages as of September 2, 2004.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. With FC2, kernel- installed, run k3b 0.11.14 (or earlier).
2. k3b will detect Samsung DVD SH-W08A but refuse to write to it.
3. Rebooting with kernel-2.6.7-1.494-2.2 and re-running k3b, Samsung
will work properly.

Actual Results:  k3b will not work properly with Samsung DVD SH-W08A
and kernel-2.6.8-1.521.

Expected Results:  k3b should be able to write to Samsung DVD SH-W08A
as it is able to do with the earlier kernel-2.6.7-1.494-2.2.

Additional info:

I am presuming that the problem is in the kernel since different
versions of k3b don't make a difference but going to an earlier kernel
version does.  I don't have another DVD writer so I can't see if that
makes a difference.

I left out one important detail.  The Samsung DVD is housed in an ADS
USB 2.0 enclosure and connected through a USB 2.0 port.
