Burning DVD ISO Images Fails In Ubuntu 9.04
I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope 64 from Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron 64 the other day with the hopes that some of my issues with the operating system and desktop experience would be resolved. While a lot of my problems seemed to be improved if not fixed, the Ubuntu 9.04 upgrade did introduce one big problem that is a deal breaker. I can no longer burn dvd images. I can still burn CD data discs and I didn’t try and CD ISO’s because I didn’t want to waste the discs.
K3b gives me this error :
:-[ WRITE@LBA=0h failed with SK=3h/ASC=0Ch/ACQ=80h]: Input/output error :-( write failed: Input/output error
And Brasero gave me this error :
BraseroWodim process finished with status 254 BraseroWodim called brasero_job_error BraseroWodim finished with an error BraseroWodim asked to stop because of an error error = 0 message = "no message" BraseroWodim stopping BraseroWodim got killed Session error : unknown (brasero_burn_record burn.c:2602)
Apparently other people are having the same issue. After a bit of searching I gave up on finding a fix or workaround for either K3b or Brasero. I even tried installing the Nero Linux Trial for 64 bit but I got some ambiguous write error.
I ended up taking my burner out of my ubuntu machine and putting it in an old windows box. The first dvd that I’m burning is a windows 7 install disc. After using ubuntu for about 6 months as my primary desktop operating system I think I’m done.
