*:-[ PERFORM OPC failed with SK=5h/ASC=2Ch/ACQ=00h]: Input/output error*
5/2C/00 stands for "COMMAND SEQUENCE ERROR"... I've never seen PERFORM
OPC fail with "COMMAND SEQUENCE ERROR"... And I can hardly imagine what
command sequence rule it violates... At least I would normally expect
some previous command, such as SET STREAMING, to fail with "insane
input" error code, then to defer error to PERFORM OPC like above...
More relevant question is what to do. First of all it appears to me that
you fall victim to wrong expectations. If disc1.iso as actual DVD image
which you intended to burn, then you shouldn't have seen any messages
from mkisofs. It looks as if you used 'growisofs -Z /dev/dvd disc1.iso'
instead of 'growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=disc1.iso'. Note that in first case it
creates essentially empty file system image [disc1.iso is too large -
ignoring], very short one, which *might* as well cause the "command
sequence error" if unit firmware implies some minimum size on reserved
Secondly "command sequence error" might indicate that unit found
internal optimized profile for media in question [where is
dvd+rw-mediainfo output???] and OPC request is therefore superfluous.
Try to modify growisofs_mmc.cpp by commenting out
"exit(FATAL_START(errno));" line, the one immediately following "sperror
("PERFORM OPC",err);" one. Another option is to skip OPC altogether.
Given the growing amount of OPC related problems, it makes sense to
implement skipping OPC as option... A.
