Description D. Hugh Redelmeier 2005-06-19 22:32:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
I burn FC4 disk with:
  cdrecord -v dev=ATA:1,0,0 -data -dao -padsize=128k driveropts=burnfree FC4-x86_64-DVD.iso

It is clear that about 3/4 of the blank is burned, just as it should be.  But when I try to read the disk, it seems to only contain 2048 bytes, all zero.  cdrecord -toc doesn't do any better.

I tried this on two machines.  One with a reasonably up-to-date FC3 x86_64 and the other with FC4 test 3 x86_64.

I was able to burn the same .iso file using growisofs on one of the machines.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cdrecord-2.01.1-5 and cdrecord-2.01.1-9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above command

Actual Results:  coaster with only one sector of zeros

Expected Results:  shiny new FC4 disk

Additional info:

cdrecord burned cds for FC4 correctly, just not DVDs.

I will include a log.

I would use growisofs to burn a DVD

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 23:25:56 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
