Debian burns DVD's it can't read
I switched to Debian Lenny Beta 2 which is on its way to become the next stable Debian release and Debian Stable is known to be rock solid for stability. Yet somehow I'm not impressed..
Either I am asking too much or I'm just out of luck, but whatever I try I am running into issues which I don't, to be entirely honest, really want to tolerate anymore.
I burned a DVD using Nautilus CD/DVD burner, as I usually do and it burned it successfully. However, when I try to insert the DVD it wouldn't mount it complaining of such things as "cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!" or "attempt to access beyond end of device". I did the same thing when I was still on Debian Sid and the same exact thing happened, but apparently the problem isn't isolated to the unstable branch. Apparently, like some other bugs in Debian it is one of those things which isn't fixed for weeks through out both the unstable and testing branch, and even when the testing branch is almost proclaimed as stable.
The thing is that these DVD's work elsewhere. I had a GoboLinux handy and tried loading the DVD burned in sid there and it was successful. So in other words, Debian burns DVDs it itself (and apparently only itself) can't read.
