Description Ulrich Seidl 2004-11-05 12:09:23 EST
Description of problem:
I can not write a dvd-r medium since dvdrecord reports that the iso
image of size 2.5GB does not fit on the inserted DVD-R.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dvdrtools v0.1.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. prepare iso-image with more than ~700MB size.
2. dvdrecord -dao dev=2,0,0 backup.iso
Actual results:
dvdrecord does not start writing (see attachment #1 [details])

Expected results:
backup.iso should be written to DVD-R

Additional info:
option -ignsize / -overburn does not help (see attachment #2 [details])

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-08 04:44:20 EST
which kernel version do you have?


# growisofs -Z /dev/cdwriter=backup.iso

which should work better anyway..
Comment 4 Ulrich Seidl 2004-11-09 03:48:45 EST
Kernel Version is 2.4.21-20.ELsmp.

The behaviour of dvdrecord seems to be related to the inserted media.
When trying a DVD-R media from another vendor, dvdrecord starts
writing, but shortly therafter fails (attachment #3 [details]). However,
cdrecord proDVD writes the iso image as expected...

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2004-12-08 06:49:23 EST
what about growisofs? does it write the media correctly as well?
Comment 7 Ulrich Seidl 2004-12-09 03:05:43 EST
Yes, it does write the media correctly.
Comment 8 Karsten Hopp 2006-05-15 05:23:29 EDT
I'm closing this as growisofs is the recommended tool for DVD writing and
doesn't have this issue.
