PostPosted: Wed 19 Sep 2012, 11:49    Post subject: Help in PBurn  

Does PBurn have the capability to add a file/folder to the root of a multi-session DVD/CD?

If so, is there any instructions for doing so?

Thanks in advance

Hi gcmartin,

Re: PBurn. Yes, Does right clicking your choice(s) in the left hand pane work for you?

Alternatively, it may suit some users to put their folder(s)/file(s) in the archive directory and save immediately to the DVD/CD (because it may be easier to recover if anything were to go wrong) or on rebooting/closure.

My regards

I just used Pburn to add a 1 GB directory full of pictures to the multisession Blu-Ray BD-RE I'm running Puppy from at the moment. When I rebooted, Puppy loaded just as always. After Puppy finished loading I clicked on the sr0 disk icon on the desktop to mount the multisession Puppy BD-RE disk in ROX. Everything was there as usual, plus the new "Pictures" directory I'd just added.

I can even add more pictures to the directory, by adding yet more "Pictures" directories to the BD-RE. When the disk is mounted in ROX, ROX only shows one "Pictures" directory, with the contents of all the "Pictures" directories on the BD-RE in it. IIRC, Windows Explorer does the same thing.

Super cool. Smile

PostPosted: Wed 19 Sep 2012, 13:22    Post subject: Clarification - Can PBURN add to an existing DVD ?  

There is probably some more information I should have included in my post.

Scenario
Let's suppose I have booted my multi-session Puppy DVD that was originally setup using PBurn. Now I have (using @Flash's example), a folder of pics that I want to add, directly, to the existing booted mediathat is in the DVD.

Questions
  1. Can PBurn be used to do this?
  2. Is there PBurn instructions to add a folder to the existing DVD?
Thanks in advance for any assistance

    1. Yes.
    2. The instructions are in my post. Smile

Don't mount the DVD, just open Pburn, navigate to the folder you want to add, click the + sign in Pburn's right pane (the folder should be all that's in Pburn's right pane,) then click Burn, telling Pburn to make it a multisession burn.

That's it. Try it with a rewritable DVD if you don't believe me. It even works with a multisession Puppy DVD that was created with Burniso2cd..

Version 3.7.5
See main post

zigbert, 3.7.5 has the same bug in Dpup Exprimo as does 3.7.4. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=653144#653144

I wondered whether it was something as simple as md5sum being handed the wrong argument by Pburn, so I tried md5sum -b and md5sum -t but md5sum output is identical for -b and -t.

PostPosted: Mon 01 Oct 2012, 16:53    Post subject: DVD blanking/burning problems with pburn 3.74/5
Subject description: pburn says "no disc inserted" whereas Burniso2CD burns a working LiveDVD
 

Yesterday I downloaded the Knoppix 7.0.4 LiveDVD iso, in the hope of finding support for my recently acquired 64GB SDXC flash card, which is inaccessible in both LupuPlus and Knoppix 7.0.2, (in Lupu it is invisible, in Knoppix, it is shown, but can’t be mounted).

After successfully testing the 3.8GB iso’s md5sum, I placed an Imation DVD-RW/4X disk in the system’s burner and opened Pburn 3.7.4. The response was:

Quote:
no disc inserted/ no writable media


After repeated attempts with the same result, I tried to burn the iso with burniso2cd, and found no obstacles there.

I burned at minimum speed, and Burniso appeared to conclude successfully,but couldn't verify the burn.

Assuming the write was unsuccessful, I then spent an hour(!) writing the 3.8GB iso to a class 10 SDHC card via USB2.0 so that I could try the burn again on a much slower desktop, under Puppy 5.2.8., in case the fault lay with my burner.

On the second desktop, I set Pburn 3.3.4 to blank the DVD. Unlike 3.7.4, Pburn 3.3.4 at least saw the disk, but still couldn’t blank it:

Quote:
Command:
dvd+rw format -force /dev/sr0

OUTPUT:
BD/DVD+ - RW/ -RAM format utility by<appro@fy.chalmers.se>, version 7.1
-(failed to locate “Quick Format” descriptor.
-( can’t locate appropriate format descriptor)


Finally, I decided to try booting with the disc, and Knoppix 7.0.4 loaded and seemed to run without any evidence of problems.

I upgraded the slower desktop's pburn to 3.7.5, but pburn then refused to run. All I could do was change the temp folder. After that, nothing happened.

I then upgraded my main desktop’s Pburn to 3.7.5, and looked at the Knoppix 7.0.4 LiveDVD with it again. Pburn again reported:

Quote:
no disk inserted/ no writable media


and Pmount responds with:
Quote:

unable to mount sr0


Yet I have now successfully loaded Knoppix 7.0.4 three times in a row from this same DVD-RW disk.

I have just tried inserting a Verbatim DVD+RW disc in the same burner, and got exactly the same response from both pmount and pburn 3.7.5, respectively. Burniso2CD also wrote to that disc without complaint.

This burner, BTW, is the one that Flash speculated, at the time of my last (similar) trouble report, might be of a type that can only read DVD-+RW discs, but not write them. Apparently not...

IMO, the problem is with the software, not the hardware, and the older the software, the fewer the problems.


On the first desktop, pburn 3.7.4 failed to detect a blank writable DVD-RW in the burner, while Burniso2CD was able to burn working a 3.8 GB iso to the same disc. Subsequently, on the same desktop, pburn 3.7.5 was still unable to identify the clearly writable DVD, and pmount was unable to mount it.

O the second desktop, pburn 3.3.4 detected, but was unable to blank, the same DVD, and pburn 3.7.5 wouldn't run at all.

Trouble writing to DVD has become one of the biggest Puppy shortcomings for me.

There's no easy way to determine the exact age, the one under discussion is described by Pburn as a "TSSTcorpCD/DVDW".. It's in an external USB enclosure of different origin, so I can't see the manufacturing date without taking it apart. The front panel says "Writemaster DVD Multi". It may be eight years old or so, about the same vintage as my desktop.

The remarkable aspects of this experience are that:

1. pburn 3.7.4/5 cannot recognize a writable DVD-RW (or +RW) in this drive under Puppy, while Burniso2CD (how old is it now?) is able to burn a 3.8GB iso to the same disc without complaint.

2. the resulting burn is good enough to boot repeatedly without problems on two other PCs, one an ancient 500MHz Celeron, the other a three or four year old Toshiba laptop.

3. the Knoppix 7.0.4 LiveDVD burned by Burniso2CD to this disc was also good enough to enable a successful flash install to an 8GB microSD card in a Delkin USB3.0 card reader attached to the Toshiba via a Sabrent expressbus USB3.0 adapter - a process that took well over an hour!

4. the Writemaster burner in question also boots Puppy 5.2.8 for me every day, and often several times a day, but ONLY from a CD-R or CD-RW. Pmount is unable to mount any of the DVD-RW or DVD+RWs , including the Knoppix 7.0.4 LiveDVD successfully burned by Burniso2CD. And Pburn labels them all "no writable media inserted".

5. Pmount IS ABLE, however, to mount an older Knoppix 5xx LiveDVD burned to a DVD+R.

One possible wild card in all of this is that the DVD+RW and DVD-RW's tested MAY have been used at some time in a Toshiba consumer DVD Recorder to record tv programming off the air.

UPDATE: have now tested the same DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs with Pburn and Pmount in the Toshiba laptop's burner, and there they all appear as writable media, and the ones with date are mountable with pmount.

I have also tested them all under Knoppix 7.0.4 on the desktop with the USB burner, using K3B. K3B also shows no media in the drive when these DVDs are inserted, and Knoppix file manager shows no icon for them. So it appears that pburn is not alone in this functional lapse.

The intriguing fact remains that I burned 3.8GB of data onto one of these 'unwritable' discs under Puppy 5.2.8, using Burniso2cd, booted two other PCs with the resulting Knoppix 7.0.4 LiveDVD (several times) without issue, then installed Knoppix 7.0.4 to flash media from this same disc, and have now booted and run two PCs with this flash installation several times without incident.

Evidently, newer is not always better. And I do wonder why Pburn and k3b cannot match the performance of Burniso2Cd in this instance.

Clearly, there is nothing wrong with the way this burner writes to RW DVD's, as the Knoppix 7.0.4 LiveDVD was readable, writable, and bootable in two other PCs. The only explanation I can think of is that the desktop's Intel D865GLC motherboard has some issue with the burner that Burniso2cd manages to overcome.

Hi Sigmund,
I've just downloaded Pburn 3.7.5 and the latest pfind and pfilesearch and none of them will install or untar. I've tried in Racy, Slacko and Dpup with pfix=ram, etc. and no luck. Other non-Ziggy .pets I have just downloaded are OK. Is it me or is something sinister going on? Confused

Thanks, J

Its me again. Turns out I was getting incomplete downloads, and didn't think to check file size. Embarassed I'm not sure why, downloaded with seamonkey in Dpup-Exprimo. Just tried going to http://www.meownplanet.net/zigbert/ in Racy5390 and the downloads worked fine and the .pets installed. YAY! Very Happy

@ zigbert

Does this application also support burning FLAC audio files?

If not, will this be possible in a future build?

If you just choose to burn them as files, that is, as digital data, then Pburn should burn them just fine. It's up to the media player to recognize that they are flac files and do the right thing by them.

burning dvd videos by pburn 3.7.5 on the precise puppy 5.4 fails.
The log of the last stage:

The file /mnt/sda3/tmp/pburn-DVD/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB is created and plays with no problem by the gnome-mplayer.

No problem with the pburn 3.6.0 on the Lupu-528JP, based on the lupu-5.2.8.005 + Pmusic upgrade.
I installed pburn 3.6.0 on the precise puppy and got the same error with the pburn 3.7.5 the log shown above.
So, it may not the pburn version problem. I suspect some dependencies in the presice can be the problem.

EDIT:
The precise puppy 5.4 has the dvdauthor 0.7.0, whereas lupu has dvdauthor 0.6.14.
I extracted the /usr/bin/dvdauthor from the lupu-528P and coped on the precise puppy, and got SUCCESS to burn a dvd video.
I conclude the problem is the dvdauthor version 0.7.0 itself or the compatibility with the pburn.
