I have experienced this problem on and off for the past several months.
But today it was the worst case. I am trying to burn a bunch of mp3
files to make an audio CD using k3b. I was able to so do for the first
one after burning only a single coaster. The second one is still not
done and I already have wasted 5 discs in the process.
When I click 'burn' in k3b, it starts to do its stuff but after a while
it errors out. However, the disc still keeps spinning, the drive has its
activity light blinking and I cannot eject the disk. Either I have to
use a paper pin in the optical drive's eject hole (which makes quite a
bit of racket due to the spinning disc) or I have to shut down the
computer, power it off, and start it again.
I have the following installed:
ii k3b 2.0.2-2
ii k3b-data 2.0.2-2
Can somebody suggest what is going on here?
The permissions for my optical drive are:
$ ls -l /dev/dvd*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Jun 11 16:36 /dev/dvd -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Jun 11 16:36 /dev/dvdrw -> sr0
$ ls -al /dev/sr0
brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 Jun 11 16:36 /dev/sr0
