Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461093
libburn DVD player incompatibility
Last modified: 2009-07-05 18:17:27 EDT
Description of problem:
DVDs burned with libburn (and other open source tools) are incompatible with various portable players while DVDs burned with commercial (Nero) and Windows equivalents work flawlessly in these players. Clearly, there seems to be a difference between the way these tools write the data to the DVD.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create/master DVD ISO image.
2. Burn ISO image to DVD with libburn (via Brasero)
3. Test in portable player
DVD is unreadable by the player.
DVD should be readable.
The problem does not exist when burning the exact same DVD ISO image using Nero or Windows equivalents.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This problem also exists in Fedora 10 (and almost certainly in 11 also). I'm changing the version from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10.
Looks like changing the booktype/bitsetting to DVD-ROM seems to solve the problem with the use of libburn (See Bug 461094). Thus I think we can close this bug.
