Description Fathi Boudra 2010-03-01 17:12:12 UTC
Version:           1.70.0 beta1 (using KDE 4.3.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

Forwarded Debian bug report:

Subject: No BD-RE support for K3B.
         BD-R is working.
         By command line with commands BD-RE can be toasted.
Package: k3b
Version: 1.69.0~alpha4-1

There is no BD-RE support available in actual k3b. Manual toasting with dedicated
commands on the console is working well with a rewritable BD.
The BR-R support instead is working well. So plaese add the BD-RE support,
which could be used easy near by the same as the DVD+RW support I mean.

follow up:

I tested to burn a 22GiB image on an BD-RE media. The media is not accepted.
K3B only say's "Please insert an empty Blue-ray medium."

The Media info in K3B means by insert an fresh unpacked Verbatim 2x BD-RE 25GB media:


Type:   BD-RE
Capacity:       00:00:00 min (0 B)
Rewritable:     yes
Appendable:     no
Empty:  yes
Layers: 1
Sessions:       0
Supported writing speeds:       2.0x (8992 KB/s)

Normally the Media must firstly formatted. If I use the "Format and Erase" menu
the media is identified as empty "BD-RE medium" but if I use "Start" I get
an message "Found mediam: Empty BD-RE medium",
"Please insert a rewritable DBD medium into drive",
"HL-DT-ST BD-RE BE06LU10 (/dev/sr0)"
