View Full Version : k3b write error, no hardware detected half way through

27th December 2008, 03:37 PM
I am using FC 10. When i try to burn a dvd image, i get this error (screenshot attached). Subsequently the dvd writer continuously shows the indicator light and is not even detected when i type: $ ls /media. It is a hardware or a k3b issue?

Huh! i am not able to upload the screenshot. And i keep getting logged out every couple of minutes. This happens only in this forum.

The error message is:[QUOTE]Unable to flush cache: input/output error
Unable to synchronous flush cache: input/output error
write error
unable to eject media

did you try gnomebaker also?

When gnomebaker is able to function 100%, it's an k3b issue

Seems like a hardware problem. I killed the k3b process and the dvd writer still shows the green light. Now both k3b and gnomebaker are not able to detect the writer:(

sounds like a hardware issue to me also
