growisofs hang w. DVD+-R
I need HELP!
I have a problem burning DVD+/-R with k3b.
Everything seems fine until it reaches round about 965MB. Then everything
hangs: k3b & growisofs. I have to use CTRL+ALT+ESC to kill k3b. Same with
And the burner seems to hang, since it takes two to three times to eject the
This behaviour is regardless of the DVD-Media type +/-R(W).
I was able to burn CD's without any problem.
I was able to create an ISO-Image of round about 3.2GB with K3B. But also
burning failed as above.
I also tried with speed=1 (k3b speed setting). Here I got a different Error
K3b Version: 0.11.7
KDE Version: 3.2.1

I have installed Windows XP Sp1a on this machine (just to test this) and it
works fine with B's Gold 5.
I used the same burner on a PIII System with Suse Linux 8.2 and k3b.
DVD-burning (plus or minus worked fine).
Suse Linux Professional 9.1 with Kernel 2.6.5
Pentium 4 3GHz Hyperthreading w. 1.5GB RAM

Any Ideas? Any help would be appreciated very much.
Thanks in advance.
