    Re: A problem with my CD/DVD writer

    Are you trying to burn .wav files and make a CD playable in other CD players? (I am a little confused here as to what exactly you are trying to do.) I don't believe that you can burn a DVD as a "music" disk.

    We are not trying to make audio DVD, we are testing the writer on Ubuntu, it refuses to burn both DVD and CD discs.

    I'll try, but same brands worked under Windows, I tried that before.

Use 'id' to check and 'sudo usermod -a -G cdrom your_username' to add youself to the group if you aren't already a member.

    I checked it:

    Code:
    pascal@pascal-Lenovo-ideapad-330-15AST:~$ groups
    pascal root adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin lxd sambashare

    None of these media is suitable for the kind of CD audio recording, which
    the burn programs offer. DVD and BD media can only be used for data recording.
    (There is a data formats for DVD audio. Wikipedia is a bit unclear about it,
    but there are indications that it is similar to the Video DVD layout in a
    UDF filesystem.)

    libburn is supposed to also show an SCSI error message if a RESERVE TRACK
    fails. I fail to find hints in the web where to to look for a detailed
    error log of Xfburn.

    Have a nice day

    I tried this command to see "libburn' if it is installed:

    Code:
    pascal@pascal-Lenovo-ideapad-330-15AST:~$ apt list --installed
    Listing... Done
    .
    .
    .
    libburn4/focal,now 1.5.2-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
    .
    .
    .

    Hi,

    it is not a surprise that libburn is installed, as it is the only
    burn backend which Xfburn and xorriso are willing to use. Brasero might
    use it too. K3B would do indirectly if using cdrskin as burn backend.

    There are some indications in the web that Xfburn shows libburn error
    messages if it was started in a terminal window. See:
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1131...urn-run-failed

    To get a report about the medium state you could run
    Code:
    xorriso -outdev /dev/sr0 -toc
    when the intended medium is inserted. (Obviously it was not inserted or
    not recognized with the previous xorriso run.)

    If your goal is to compose ISO 9660 fileystems and to burn them on CD or
    DVD, then xorriso would be the command line way to do so. (I'd need to
    know which disk directories shall be copied and which directory names they
    shall get. Then i could propose a burn run with checksums and checkreading.)

    Have a nice day

    Thomas
