Hello. For some reasons I cannot burn CDs with my combo drive.
This is what cdrecord -scanbus shows:
1,0,0 100) 'HL-DT-ST' 'RW/DVD GCC-4521B' '1.04' Removable CD-ROM
However whenever I put a blank CD in the drive K3B complains that there is no CD in the drive.
Any ideas as to what might be causing it?
Thanks in advance.
Mmm, CD burning always worked great for me but I recently upgraded my hardware and magically it didn't work. I just put it down to the new hardware but I guess maybe a newer version has issues with some drives who knows.
I ended up with a temporary solution of just using cdrecord, it works ok.
cdrecord -v dev=/dev/hdc /path/to/image.iso
This is the output I received from the command you suggested:

Of course I put a blank CD in the drive.
Maybe you laser is burned out?
Ah, I hope not Any way I can check it?
