Re: What is the failure here when growisofs'ing a new disk?

Hi folks, I'm wondering if someone would characterise my growisofs problem for me, since I am not making much of the diagnostic output. What's going on here?

My first thought is that your drive doesn't like these media. Is the firmware at the current level?

What's your media?  DVD-RW?  If so, maybe it's the same problem
I'm having with the Plextor PX-716UF.  Try fully blanking the
disk first

Sorry about the delay getting back to you folks. Further inspection reveals ...

  1. media claims to be DVR-R.  Attempts to blank it as suggested
     weren't successfull (unfortunately the log has scrolled back too far).
  2. firmware is not up to date
  3. I also have issues recording CD's with this drive

At least I've got something to go on now - thanks.

I'll try and fix #2 and #3, plus verify that the drive work on 'that other operating system' before posting further. Thanks for your help so far.


PS.  FWIW, here's the fault exhibited when burning a CD with cdrecord.
