RE: DVD Burning Problem



Hey Ben,
 Thanks for the reply. The DVD Drive is DVD +/- RW, but the media that
I'm using is a DVD+RW. I'd try using mondo, but I don't know enough
about linux to even know how to make the script for for that. The script
was written by a co-worker of mine, but has left to company for a
different job, so now I'm here trying to figure out how all of this
works.

Oliver,

Two things:

1) Are you using a DVD+/-RW?  IIRC, dvdrecord has a hard time with 
DVD+/-RW media.

2) Why not use mondo-archive?  I'm using it to backup to DVD+RW.  I get
a 
hickup about every other week, but other than that it works just fine, 
with the added benefit of having my restore media being bootable.

if you decide to try out mondo, let me know and I'd be happy to post a 
sanitized copy of my backup script.

Ben
