Description Peter H. Jones 2007-10-06 15:35:58 EDT
Description of problem:
When K3b is creating an image from a DVD, duplicate image name is detected, but
writing is allowed, even if the user says "no" to the ensuing dialogue.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start K3b
2. Select Tools,Copy DVD
3. Set options to "Only Create Image", <existing file>, "Ignore errors"
4. A dialog requesting permission to overwrite the existing file appears
5. Select No
Actual results:
K3b copies over the existing file anyway.

Expected results:
K3b should return to main menu, or offer the user a chance to specify a new name

Additional info:

What I actually did was to copy to a new file, then repeat the copying with the
same parameters, just to reassure myself that I wouldn't accidentally overwrite
an existing DVD image.

Assigned priority as High because of the risk of data loss. May apply to all
platforms, did not test that.

imo, this is an ideal candidate to file upstream @ bugs.kde.org.
Comment 2 Peter H. Jones 2007-10-06 20:14:44 EDT
Done. See
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-12-12 08:06:52 EST
