Insufficient space on media

Asked by Allan on 2008-11-11

When trying to do a "Disc Copy" I always get a "Insufficient space on media (0 available for 289362)." There is a black cd (I have tried several) in the one CDRW drive and the original media in the CD Rom drive.

Here is the log:Checking session consistency (brasero_burn_check_session_consistency burn.c:1843)
BraseroCdrdao called brasero_job_get_action
BraseroCdrdao getting varg
BraseroCdrdao called brasero_job_get_action

Session error : Insufficient space on media (0 available for 289362) (brasero_burn_record burn.c:2524)

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I can't provide an answer, but I'll second the report.

Brasero burned one CD, which players regard as unreadable, and every subsequent attempt to burn a disc has resulted in the error mentioned above. The problem is not with the media, as I've tried multiple blank discs.

Have you tried to use DVD Decrypter then DVD Shrink then burn the Video_TS file or ISO image?

I'm experiencing the same problem.

In my opinion it's not the size of the project that is the problem; I've been using several sizes. Brasero seems to think the empty CD has only 0 Bytes available). The error states "....(0 available for 289362)...". Is it some rights problem? I did not change anything to the default installation that came with Ubuntu 8.10.

Anyone who has a clue?

Thanks.

I have the same problem as well...
however i tried making an audio project. After converting the MP3 files, a similar message appeared. My solution was to use rhythmbox to burn the album.
i'm currently using ubuntu 8.10 after updating via the update thingy...

I've found a work-around somewhere else in the meantime. The work-around is tot burn a music-CD with Rythmbox (or some other program) once. After burning one CD this way, Brasero works just fine.

I presume it is some installation/configuration problem. Ubuntu/brasero should find some time to solve it. Lots of people will have difficulties using the combination meanwhile.

This seems to be a problem with what type of drive you use. I have a Plextor PX-716A DVD-RW drive and an LG DVDRAM GSA-4167B DVD-RW drive.

When I put the disc in the Plextor (which is not working well) everything is fine, it doesn't show the disc as a "0 byte" disc but as a "1hr 20min disc", and it lets me burn. When it's put into the LG drive it reports as a "0 (zero) minute" Blank CD.

I tried to burn a 10 minute long *.WAV file to a CD to make a standard audio disc and it fails with that message. The *.WAV file is 120MB, so it's well below the size threshold (700MB) of the CD and the time threshold of 80 minutes.

This is not a physical problem with my drives as in the past burning WAV's and MP3's with Brasero worked fine and also the only drive that works well for me at the minute is the LG, the Plextor can't even read that well anymore. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Brasero has something new in it that is preventing DVDRAM GSA-4167B (HL-DT-ST - generic kind) drives from reporting properly. The only problem I'm having is that my fallback drive, the Plextor, works like a dog so I can't use it either.

I would wait until someone who knows something about hardware says something about this (I mean specifically about known problems in Linux with DVDRAM GSA-4167B drives, there could be particular problems with the kernel which have nothing to do with Brasero) and after that, file this as a bug.

This is a known bug upstream -> http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=557561

DoverDad (dev-cipheria) said : #11

I had this same problem, but here is a method that works for me (essentially, burn an ISO to hard disk, then user brasero to burn an ISO image; I'm using Xubuntu):

1. Put blank CD in
2. Start brasero
3. "Create a new project"
4. Data project
5. (select the files you want to backup)
6. Burn
7. Select a disc: Image file
8. "file will be burned to: /home/username/brasero.iso"

Once done, burn the ISO image
9. Project, New, Burn image
10. Yes, to lose the [backup/ISO] project
11. Image path
12. Choose your [brasero.iso] file
13. Open
14. Burn

Thanks for the idea. I have not had time to explore this much more because of too much on my plate but what I did to get around this is to make an image of the CD and then burn a CD using the image file (like DoverDad). Again, thanks for the comments, suggestions, thoughts etc. I hope that this gets fixed soon cause Brasero seems to be a nice and convenient tool with the Ubuntu Desktop.

Thanks David Planella, that solved my question.
