Burning on DVD

Postby skmpz » 10 Feb 2010, 14:37

Hey there..
I'm on FreeBSD 8.. when i insert a blank dvd it mounts ok and shown to the desktop.. when i drag something and select "Write to Disk" brasero disc burning setup opens up and it has only the option of creating an image.. and "please insert a recordable cd/dvd ......."

Whats the matter with it ? :S

thx in advance..

I don't know why Gnome supports brasero because it is as buggy as hell. A much better alternative is "sysutils/xfburn".

Hello,

Just follow the stuff on this handbook page

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/creating-cds.html#ATAPICAM

I believe it will help.

Ultimately I think the software was looking for ATAPI rather than SCSI systems

Can you burn using command line utils?

So far I haven't had any issues with Brasero, until I hit FreeBSD, and then they weren't Brasero's fault.

I had a bit of a battle getting DVDs burned, using anything, cdburn, k3b, brasero, etc. Sir Dice's link proved to be key. In particular, I had to add the following to [FILE]/boot/loader.conf[/FILE]:
Code: Select all
atapicam_load="YES"


The permissions in [FILE]/etc/devfs.conf[/FILE] as per the previous post also were necessary. Hope this helps someone.
