Without this information we'll have to make guesses.
Where does the symlinks for "dvd" and "dvd-hdc" point to now?
You don't need a symlink saying dvdwriter, you can just give
the growisofs command with the right device name.
The simplest thing to do is:
1. Put a blank DVD in the burner.
2. Give the command:
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=FC-6-i386-DVD.iso
3. If point 2 fails, try:
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd-hdc=FC-6-i386-DVD.iso
Of course you should replace "FC-6-i386-DVD.iso" with the
name of your .iso file.
If you havn't got growisofs it can be installed by:
yum install dvd+rw-tools
I am sorry that I didn't say that the DVD+RW drive replaced the old
DVD-ROM drive and that only the DVD+RW drive is present. It also seems
that I already have the dvd+rw-tools already installed. However, I am
still not able to write the Fedora Core 6 DVD.iso file to a DVD+R disk.
The error that I continue to get states that the file is too large to be
written to the disk. I already used another disk to see if there is a
problem with the drive itself and it reads DVD video disks fine. I also
used the two commands above but still without success. I am also using
K3B as the burning software, but it doesn't seem to be the software
itself because the same problem happens with Gnomebaker as well. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
