I'm trying to automate a daily backup to DVD-RW, DVD+RW, or DVD-R. I'm
running int a problem though. When I run the command:
kt at volkswagon:~$ tar --create --bzip2 \
--exclude ./subversion \
--sparse . | sudo nice -n -20 \
growisofs -use-the-force-luke \
I get the following output:
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/proc/self/fd/0 of=/dev/dvdrw obs=32k seek=0' /dev/dvdrw:
FEATURE 21h is not on, engaging DAO... /dev/dvdrw: "Current Write Speed" is 2.0x1385KBps.
:-! "COMMAND SEQUENCE ERROR"@LBA=0h. Is media being read?
:-! the LUN :appears to be stuck at 0h, retrying in 5 secs...
0/4707319808 ( 0.0%) @0x, remaining ??:??
The error message just keeps repeating until I kill it.
It looks like the way Ubuntu is autodetecting my DVD and displaying that
it is empty or what its status is might be causing me a problem doing
the backup. So, unless someone out there has a better idea what is
going on, I would like to disable the autodetection of this device. How
do I go about doing that?
I should note that the command line presented above has worked on
numerous occasions, so it isn't that.
