I have a Dell 2.8GHz PC that is running OpenSuSE 10.2. The system is
stable generally but I am having a great deal of problems burning
DVD's using k3b. I am running as a normal user. I set the the "users"
group in k3b setup to be able to burn. My regular user account is a
member of users.
The system has a SATA hard drive. The secondary controller is regular
PATA with two DVD drives attached.
I cannot seem to be able to get YAST to "keep" DMA on the second DVD
drive on the secondary controller. I can set it to DMA in YAST but it
for no apparent reason reverts back to PIO. I have used the temporary
root command that k3b suggested. I did discover that the BIOS had the
second drive on the secondary controller disabled. But enabling that
did not resolve the problem.
But beyond that it seems I cannot even burn DVD's on the first DVD
drive on the secondary controller which does not have the problem
losing it's DMA setting. Every time I try to burn a data DVD, k3b
crashes even on the drive that keeps its DMA setting. I have tried 3
different brands of blank DVDs all of which work fine on my Windows XP
The basic message from k3b is...
:-( unable to WRITE@LBA=0h: Input/output error
:-( write failed: Input/output error
The complete (slightly edited with similar lines deleted) k3b error
log is below.
Thanks in advance.
I don't understand what you mean with "the secondary controller" , since
they both are on the primary IDE controller (hda , hdb)
Linux is (or was) very sensitive for timing on the IDE bus,
so you must have the master connected at the end of the cable:
MB SLAVE MASTER
ide0 hdb hda
If your cable has:
Black grey black
You can use CS (cable select)
otherwise jumper them as slave, master.
Also, many LG drives are chipped with broken firmware as new, but some
fixes in the windows driver, they will often work perfectly after
firmware upgrade when
other then windows users give some feedback to mysterious behavior.
Your GSA-4166B should be flashed to firmware 1.02 , the only problem is
a flash utility and bin file that you can use with an opendos disk, but
you also have windows, it's easy to flash from there.
Your ND-3450A can be flashed to 1.03
If you are using them for drive-drive copy, you may jumper then both as
and move hdb to hdc , if the secondary IDE channel is empty.
Just remember, use the connectors at the END of the cables.
If you also have IDE disks, it's better to use them as master, and the
DVD drives as slaves hdb and hdd.
Thanks for the advice. I had a second GSA-4166B and it was already at
1.02. I updated the existing drive to 1.02. So I installed two of these
drives as master and slave. They are hda and hdb.
I only have one pair of IDE connectors as the other controller is SATA
for the hard drive.
Since my problem appears beyond just the drive controller, I started a
new thread "YAST settings lost / Will not stay set." My sound card will
not stick in YAST either.
Thanks for your help.
