I've tried Kubuntu 8.04, Xubuntu 9.04 and LinuxMint7 (Ubuntu 9.04 I
think) on different PCs with different DVD-RW drives.
All drives will "copy" a double layer DVD to an .iso file, but none will
record the .iso to an 8.4 gb double layer (single-sided) DVD+R (Teac).
I've googled endlessly and while I find many with the same problem,
nobody seems to have a solution.
Many posts mention mkisofs and how it is no longer included in Ubuntu,
having been replaced with genisoimage and I've found posts that say that
double-layer dvd's can be burned under Suse, I havent found anything
mentioned about being able to do the same under Ubuntu (or derivatives).
My LG GSA-4613B dvd-rw sees the blank disk correctly, as do my other
DVD-RW drives, but none will write.
I have set the DVD size to 8.4gb in K3b, and I have tried Brasero and
Gnomebaker. None will burn.
Any advice or links appreciated, else I'll do a temp install of Suse to
see if that does work.
