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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. With FC2, kernel-188.8.131.52.521 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
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.
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.
