I recently got a new Pioneer DVR-105 drive real cheap. I now want to use it w/ my Gentoo system, but I've run into trouble. Trying to burn with either cdrecord or dvdrecord (http://www.nongnu.org/dvdrtools/) fails with error. Blanking the disc, I get similar trouble:

Code:

dvdrtools - based on:
Cdrecord 1.11a15 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 J�rg Schilling
scsidev: '1,0,0'

Does anyone have dvd burning working with Gentoo and if so what'd you do? I've searched the net, but the things that have popped up, I've tried.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Alright, I got things working. First problem was the disc I was using appears to have been bad. Despite being a DVD-RW, I cannot erase it. On the first bad write, I tried burning at 4x, but the -RW is only at 2x. Needless to say, after I got some new DVD-Rs, everything went smoothly using dvdrecord (of dvdrtools).

can you post a bit more info?

i.e. is scsi emulation compiled into your kernel?
is dma enabled on our IDE drives?
do you have a /dev/hd* for your dvd-r drive?

i have an a-04 drive, and i can burn cd-r(w)s just fine, but not dvd-r(w)s.

i get the same sendcmd error as you initially posted.

thanks,
tyler

Sorry for the delay...

Anyways, I have SCSI emulation built into the kernel and dma is enabled. There is an hd* for the device (hdg).

I can burn both CDRs and DVDRs. For dvds, I am using dvdrecord. This had to be downloaded and compiled seperatley (not part of the portage tree...yet). It works just like cdrecord.

I'm looking to get a dvd burner to convert all my vhs home movies to dvds. I just found this page:

http://www.linuxgazette.com/issue83/stoddard.html

I just got a digital video camera. my plan right now is to plug it into my ibook via firewire, save it as quicktime, then convert it to avi where the link above picks up from.

anybody know a way to convert quicktime to avi? I think quicktime pro can do it, but I'd rather not pay for it.

alternatively, I could look at getting a firewire card for my athlon. but then I need a linux program to download the video from the camera to the harddrive.

A good linux program is kino http://kino.schirmacher.de/ for importing video from a dv camera to linux. I have used it and it works quite well. I have, at times, had to reimport certain clips because it transfered funny, but mostly it worked fine. It is a good alternative to commercial software.
