It's exactly a week since I downloaded the Fedora Core 5 DVD image. Didn't get a chance to burn a DVD with cause because of my trip to Thailand. Finally today i attempted it but it didn't meet with much success.

I have long believed that CD/DVD writing is the Achilles heel of linux. K3B, what seems to be the most popular is just the best out of a bad lot. With my installation it always insists on closing any DVD it writes to. Because of that I have dozens of DVDs with less than 1GB of data on them.

Burning an image with K3B seems to be impossible. It produces this error
