Attached to a USB port of my PC (linux-188.8.131.52 vanilla) there is a
USB to IDE converter, which makes my "old" dvd burner accessible via
my SATA only PC.
When I connect everything as described, insert an empty DVD and start
k3b, an error message is displayed saying that there is no DVD drive
(or better no drive at all).
Things change, when I insert an already written DVD first, connect
everything, start k3b and replace the dvd with an emplty one.
Then this world is one of the best to burn dvds. ;)
I took a look into /dev and found, that there is a /deb/usbdev2.5 when
the drive is loaded with an empty dvd. This one is replaced by
/dev/sr0 (including correct links to /dev/dvd and such) when the drive
gets loaded with a already filled dvd.
Previously (exact point in time unknown ... I am not burning dvds
often...) this works without any problem.
So I dont think that the hardware is to blame here...
Are there any tricks to fix this hassle?
Thank you very much for any working devicehrrrmmm...:)
