Unable to make double layer drives work
I recently migrated one of my systems to SuSE 9.2 and at the same time
upgraded the DVD RW drive to a double layer, LITE-ON SOHW 1673S. dvd+rw
Burning a DVD+R 8x media with K3B or growisofs resulted in a delay, then
the error "unable to WRITE@LBA=0h: Inout/Output error". But it would
burn 4x DVD+RW fine.
I looked at the web page and it said 2.6.8 was bad so I downloaded,
built and installed 2.6.11. Still wouldn't burn DVD+R, I didn't try
+RW. Same error.
So I tried a Sony DRU-720A double layer drive (back to 2.6.8 kernel).
The motherboard is MSI (MSI 865PE Neo2 controller). So I tried the
LITE-ON on another box with a very recent Intel (82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5)
controller) motherboard. Same result.
So I tried my old single layer DVD-RW (LITE-ON SOHW-812S) and it works
in both boxes with kernel 2.6.8.
Uh... I didn't save the mediainfo data before I changed the drive. It
didn't seem to have anything odd in it, though. I don't happen to have
any double layer or -R/-RW media to try.
Any ideas, is there a patch that I can install or anything?
