No More Track Reservations Allowed

I am getting this error when attempting to burn Ubuntu onto a DVD-R. 


I SS the log and attached

These are the logs it gave as well. I've researched on your site and it seems like my drivers may be out of date, but anytime I attempt to update them I am told they are up to date. Is it possible my burner doesn't get new drivers? Please halp! Thank you in advance for your time!

Your most likely culprit is this:


I 15:56:29 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: CMC MAG. AM3) (Speeds: 6x, 8x, 12x, 16x)



Your drive probably doesn't like CMC Magnetics media.  And CMC Magnetics is the worst manufacturer of optical media out there.  Half of the errors we see on this board are caused by CMC Magnetics and other cheap media.  I'd try something else like Verbatim DataLifePlus (NOT Life Series) which you can only find online.  It is the best stuff out there.



Now, if you've used this media before in this drive without a problem, it could just be a bad disc in the stack.  Or a bad stack.  Or it could be your drive needs replacing.  However, before replacing an entire drive, I'd try replacing the media first.  It's the cheaper option and is generally the one that works.



Granted, I've never seen that error before, ever, in the 10 plus years I've been here.

Unfortunately it seems like the drive must be made by cmc then, because the disks are all verbatim 16x 4.7gb dvds. I'm gonna borrow a buddy's computer and burn it on that instead I guess :/ Thank you for the quick reply!


edit: after investigation it seems like cmc makes discs for verbatim's label sold through best buy. DUB TEE EFFFFF! I'll go shopping and swap, then update. Thanks again!

Yeah, CMC does not make drives.  CMC makes media.  CMC makes media for Verbatim, too.  They make the discs for Verbatim's Life Series, which is why I said avoid those.  Mitsubishi makes the best stuff out there and they make it for Verbatim, but Verbatim also sullies their good name by farming out to CMC, too.  Anything to maximize a buck!  :greedy:



The Mitsubishi stuff is the DataLifePlus series which you probably won't find in a store, but only online.
