> Status in “k3b” package in Ubuntu: New
> Bug description:
> Binary package hint: k3b
> One attempts to burn a multisession DVD by selecting "Start Multisession" on the Misc tab of  "Project Properties".  If one attempts to set the "Writing Mode" to TAO, or SAO on the "Writing" tab, one is unable to change the writing mode from "Auto".  That is, the only unavailable writing mode is "Auto".  When the DVD is burnt one will get the warning message "Most writers do not support multisession in DAO mode".  The DVD will burn succesfully.  However, if one attempts to now append a new session to the DVD by selecting "Continue Multisession" on the "Misc" tab of "Project Properties", the burn will be aborted with the message "Could not determine size of resulting image file".
> It appears that K3b is burning the multisession DVD in DAO when it should be burning it in SAO (or possible TAO) and thus failing.  (It is possible the the problem may be with GrowIsoFS  and that this behavior is on purpose due to current possible problems with GrowIsoFS. I state this due to error messages received when attempting to due the same in ArchLinux ... sorry I can't remember the details).  (Or it is of course always possible there is something I am doing wrong).
> This version of K3b is 4.3.2. per K3b Help, or 1.68.0-alpha~alpha2-0Ubuntu1 per Synaptic.
> Previous versions of K3b would automatically start and continue multisession when burning a data DVD by default and without user intervention.  Admittingly, there was always a slight problem as there was never a true accurate indication of disk space left when one went to burn the second or subsequent sessions.
