View Full Version : [ubuntu] K3B does not see my other HDDs

May 4th, 2008, 12:06 PM
I've only been using Ubuntu for a couple of months but thus far K3B is the only burning tool I have found that does DVD-video and not just DVD data (I have .VOBs .BUPs and .IFOs placed in a VIDEO_TS folder all working and ready to go). Problem is that my video data resides on a different HDD than Ubuntu and K3B will only show me the OS disk.

Is there a way I can persuade K3B to show me all the HDDs in my box? Alternatively, is there a better tool or method in Ubuntu for preparing DVD video discs? I've been jumping back into XP to use Nero for these jobs.

Open up K3b, and in the folder bar under Tools write
whatever your other HD drive is, like mine could be /52gb/ or /147gb/ and in the filter section dropbar set it to All files.
Offcource your drives have to be mounted

Figured it out - 'twas noob confusion. Needed to browse to /media/<hdd label>. I blame a Windows hangover that leaves me feeling helpless without drive letters.
