Subject description: Sanity check needed for drive-to-drive copy
 

Feature Request
There needs to be a sanity check for the 'On-the-fly' option in Copy Data Disc to ensure that Input Device and Burner Device are not set to the same device - they both default to sr0 at the moment (on the systems I use) and therefore Pburn will be trying to read from a blank disc, throwing an error and aborting the operation if the options aren't set by the user.

I think you can guess how I encountered that issue... Embarassed

I have only 1 drive, so will you please test this one before I upload it to the main post.

- I added a final check if burndrive and indrive is the same when burning on-the-fly. This is only true for copy data and copy audio.

- Indrive should now the by default be set to another drive than burner if exist.

Tested on both Zhaan and Merlin, relevant specs are:-

Zhaan - AMD K6-2 500. Secondary Master (sr0) is Sony CRX-100E CD writer and Secondary Slave (sr1) is Hitachi GD-5000 DVD-ROM drive. Both ATAPI.

Merlin - Pentium D 3.4GHz. Primary Master (sr0) is LITE-ON SHM-165P6S DVD-RAM drive, Primary Slave (sr1) is a MSI DVD-ROM drive. Both are ATAPI. They're designated Primary because the SATA port the hard drive is connected to is classed as 'Tertiary' for some reason, and I don't have any PATA hard drives in there.

On both machines, the test version of Pburn 3.7.9 correctly spotted when Input Device and Burner Device were set to the same drive.

On both machines the Input Drive still defaulted to sr0. You could maybe have the option to set them on the screen which pops up when Pburn is first run, but to be honest I don't think that it would really be worth the effort. Automatic classification of optical drives in Puppy is generally flaky anyway. For the few people who do have multiple optical drives the sanity check will be enough to ensure that the error doesn't occur.

Thanks, once again, for Pburn. It came in very handy when I was copying the files from the old hard drive from Dad's unfortunate Macbook Pro to DVD. Put the drive in a nice Zalman ZM-VE300 enclosure and we found out I could mount it in Puppy [1], even on the K6-2 500 machine, but not on his new Macbook!

Notes:-

1. After installing hfsprogs and/or hfsutils and issuing some console commands.

Hi Zigbert

Thanks again for this great. Just posting a couple of observations that may help others.

I've been burning DVD ISOs that I created with DVD Styler

1) Precise 5.4.1 with pburn 3.7.5 seems to be faster than slacko 5.3.1 with pburn 3.7.8. Don't know if this is due to different kernel or library versions.

2) Vertabim DVD-R speed x16 refuse to play on Sony DVD player - I get on error on the player saying 'disc is dirty'
Using TDK DVD+R speed x1-16 on the same equipment results in success.

Processor : Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
Memory : 504MB (189MB used)
Drive : TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552B

Ziggy,

I'm not sure whether this has been applied in pburn before, but apparently newer version of dvdauthor requires VIDEO_FORMAT variable to be exported. It should contains "ntsc" or "pal". If it is not exported, dvdauthor will fail with error message ERR: no video format specified for VMGM.

References:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dvdbackup
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=111506
http://web.archiveorange.com/archive/v/lXbylZZspJKrdsldJcHE

This first surfaces up on http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=673993#673989 - apparently Fatdog's dvdauthor (version 0.7.0) is new enough to have this problem. Not sure whether other puppies have the problem too.

I have provided patch, this patch is applied against Pburn 3.7.7. but it should be a simple matter to apply this to 3.7.9.

The workaround is simply to do "export VIDEO_FORMAT=NTSC" or "export VIDEO_FORMAT=PAL" before launching pburn.

cheers!

James the patch is not required if the dvdauthor is configured as:
configure --prefix=/usr --enable-default-video-format=PAL

It can be either PAL or NTSC as it's just specifying the default.

The default can be changed when burning.

The clue was in the install instructions in the dvdauthor source code.

------------------------Cut-------------------------------------
To compile, type
./configure
make

Then to install, type
make install

If you don't want the files installed to /usr/local/bin, then you can
specify --prefix=/usr or some other dir as a parameter to configure.

* Useful options to configure:

These options may be used to restore behaviour that was built into older
versions of DVDAuthor.

--enable-default-video-format=NTSC
--enable-default-video-format=PAL


Without one of these, there is no hard-coded default video format.
(Of course, a user- or system-specified default always takes precedence
if present.)

--enable-localize-filenames

Specify this if you want filenames to be interpreted according to your
locale setting. Without this, filenames are assumed to be in UTF-8
encoding.

can anyone recommend a good internal Blu-ray burner?

I have a player, the disks and the program, but no burner.

TIA.

- Include VIDEO_FORMAT to dvdauthor for burning video. (thanks to jamesbond)


Ok, so it is possible to avoid this issue by compiling DvdAuthor smarter (thank you Grant). But the patch from jamesbond will make stuff work - whatever compile you use.


Thank you both!!!
Sigmund

I've used both LG and Asus internal SATA Blu-Ray burners to make data Blu-Ray disks with Pburn without any problems. In fact, Pburn is the easiest program to make data disks with that I've tried.

Thanks Flash.
I am considering an LG BH14NS40.

Fry's electronics sells the Kodak BD-RE rewritable Blu-Ray disks for about $4. I highly recommend getting at least one to experiment and validate with. BD-R are too expensive to make coasters out of.

zigbert there is a problem with your new pburn-3.7.10.pet. In produces an error and won't install in Fatdog.

Correction: The problem is with my system.

The older ones do.

It works on my Fatdog install, I used it to burn data to a CD-RW with no problems.
