For several years I've been happily burning files to DVDs using k3b. A couple of months ago I began encountering a problem that now has me completely bewildered. Some recently burned DVDs will not mount in Ubuntu, although they seem to mount fine (and pass integrity tests) on several Macs.
I'm running Ubuntu Karmic, and for some reason it wont mount dvd's. I started having problems when I upgraded to Karmic when it was released. I am able to mount cds jsut fine, just no dvds. A friend gave me another drive to try, and no dice. So i have the disc for maple 13 that I need for school, i pop it in, nothing. I put the dvd in my wifes machine and it works just fine.
My IBM Thinkpad T42p is running Fedora Core 11. I upgraded from a previous version (FC 7, I think) and, initially, the laptop's CD/DVD recognized both CDs (data and audio) and DVDs. After installing other software packages, though, CDs no longer were recognized. DVDs still play -- I can watch movies on VLC, for instance.
I am a new convert and i am now using Debian Lenny. I have managed to down load a cd but it does not have a lot of facilities. I have tried to download the 5 DVDs but my band width has let me down...Is there any place where I can get free copies or anyone generous enough to send me the 5 Debian DVDs. I don't want to give up the Linux Experience...please :-).
i have in the past got encripted dvds to play,,,bur for some reason, i cannot now....i have used the 2 popular repositories, and i install everythihng...but everytime i try to get dvds to play, say encripted....i can remember last time i got this working,,it was onlly about 3 entries into the terminal...anyonen helpme....
