Install > K3B DEB < 24 mb installed
Then you need to enable USB Host mode.
Now that its installed and Host mode is enabled, you need to connect your cdrom/dvd burner.
In order to do this I use a USB Gender Changer, A Female To Female
Click on the picture to link to Cyberguys.com. (where I bought mine)
I connect this to my 810 cable and then connect that to my USB DVD burner cable.
After plugging in USD device, wait about 10 seconds for device to settle before starting K3b
Start K3b from the menu under Multimedia
Its setup to run as root, I had nothing but problems getting it to run as user.
When started it will come up and tell you your running it as root, just click close. You can also start k3bsetup, but you don’t need to.
I mounted flash and backed it up to CD and DVD perfectly, on two different DVD burners. (Sony and Lite-On)
You can mount CD/DVD’s manually, I could not get it to work with K3b, anyone figure it out let me know. I tried several fstab entries. (in xterm as root “mount /dev/sdc0 /mnt/cdrom)
I was not able to backup the full running filesystem, from crashes to directory loops that go to memory death. Perhaps some kind of ro mount to roots?
Make sure the device is plugged in and turned on before starting K3b or it wont find the device and you will need to restart the application. After plugging in the USB device, wait about 10 seconds for the device to settle before starting K3b
It finishes but cannot seem to verify, it will pop out the disk when its done and you will have to then cancel it the application. It will be at 50% complete. It works perfectly though?
Let me know what your experiences are. If you loaded my cdrom.deb or cdvd-tools.deb you would need to remove them from application manager.
Please review the thread on InternetTabletTalk.com for further information and other users experiences
Also, I never ruined one disc It works great. Linux Rules!!!!!!!!
UPDATED BY POPULAR DEMAND Click on picture to see how to burn a dvd and the time it takes. Its a tad long and about 10MB just an FYI. This is a demo of me burning about 350MB to a DVD. Its about 1-2x for a DVD (about 1-3K KB/s)
Please notice the CPU load is very heavy and running VNC server with an active host added to the load. Vnc seems to use about 10-15% CPU and it also puts extra load on Xomap. So I am saying it may be a little faster without vnc running
