Hi all,
I've been having one heck of a time burning DVDs (I can't)... K3b accepts all the files (VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS) and then starts the process only to error with:

:-( media is not formatted or unsupported
Write error

What the heck does that mean?! Ubuntu (8.10) can see the Blank DVDr, as can K3b... but it simply won't burn! These DVDs have been used a bunch of times, and I'm down to about half-way down the spindle... are they "bad" somehow all of the sudden?

Thanks.

Here's the complete debug output:

God help me I have this same problem...for months now. I swear when I first installed intrepid burning worked and then something broke. I have tried two different burners(pain in the but hauling out the other and putting it in this system). I recently installed vmware just to see what nero would say and it coughed up a wrong media error...A dvd I burned on the same dvd burner in a windows system mounts as a cd on this system... I think maybe this is fstab related but I am sure I dont know enough to say for sure. I swear to god my time with windows would be reduced to 5% if I could fix this why does this have to be so hard...Yes yes I know this thread is old but I am frustrated most similar searches on Google etc show exactly this one person asking a question and that is it!
