Problem with Rewritable DVD burning

Asked by SWAGATAK GHOSH on 2012-01-11

I am trying to write the ubuntu 11.10 iso in a rewritable DVD. But it fails . Then I tried to burn any file to that dvd but same error. But When I am trying to to install in normal blank DVD it works. The rewritable DVD is new and ubuntu is detecting it as a blank rewritable DVD. What is the problem ? How to write rewritable DVD ?

After the incomplete the burning process the log is as follows

I also had problems with Brasero so I replace it with Gnomebaker.Add PPA with this command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnomebaker/stable

Hit Enter and after repository is added run

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gnomebaker

Sorry with Gnomebaker the problem is same. the output is

:-[ WRITE@LBA=0h failed with SK=5h/CANNOT FORMAT MEDIUM - INCOMPATIBLE MEDIUM]: Wrong medium type
:-( media is not formatted or unsupported.
:-( write failed: Wrong medium type

Now I thought that the dvd is not ok so I tested the DVD in windows where is is working fine. What the problem is ? Why the problem doesn't exist for normal Dvds ? How to overcome this ?

thanks

I really donĀ“t know.Check in synaptic that dvd+rw-tools are installed.

Can you help with this problem?
