Thanks for your advice, I managed to find another drive, it's not a
DVD-rw, but an old CD-rw drive. I also re-seated the ata cable.
The problem has slightly changed, it still freezes before actually
writing to the disc, but on this old drive the last message on the
screen is 'Starting DAO at 4x speed', this is before sending the CUE
sheet. Also it doesn't completely freeze, instead I can still cancel the
write, and retrieve the disc from the drive (it locked up before), k3b
is still responsive, yet doesn't close when using file - quit. I have to
kill it (signal 15 suffices).
Brasero shows similar behavior.
I also tried to use the other connection on the cable (switching master
and slave), but no luck either.
I'll see if another cable does the job, but I don't see anything wrong
with the current one, no sharp bends or anything.
Also, this just doesn't seem right to me atm (from kern.log):
[1.956571] sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 4x/48x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
[1.956574] Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
[1.956760] sr 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
[1.966828] sr1: scsi3-mmc drive: 32x/32x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
[1.966889] sr 2:0:1:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr1
At that moment, 2 optical drives are attached to the same cable, a
DVD-rom (read-only) and the old CD-rw drive.
This however does seem correct (a couple of lines down)
[ 1.324498] ata3.00: ATAPI: _NEC DV-5800E, G9S1, max UDMA/33
[ 1.324521] ata3.01: ATAPI: R/RW 4x4x32, 1.3B, max MWDMA2
Any ideas should the other cable not work? And can someone explain the
first part of that log to me, about the sr0 and sr1 device?
