[opensuse-kde3] 12.1_32/KDE3.5 - DVD+R/W Disk not recognised by KDE
Had an .iso download that I wanted to burn to a DVD. Used a RW disk that had
been previously recorded ... not recognised in KDE (i.e., no "what do you
want to do" prompt).

Booted Win7, ran imgburn and did a FULL erase/format on this disk and two
others. Then rebooted and in opensuse 12.1_32/kde3.5 none of these disks was
recognised by KDE 3.5. This is my production install which uses haldaemond,
the HAL-enabled KDE repo, and which generally reads all other dvds I use.

I booted into Mint13/XFCE that I have installed, and each of the disks is
readable/mounted properly there. Obviously Win7 also recognises them. Going
back into Win7 and running an info applet from DVDINFOPRO on the disk I got:

When the disk is inserted in my 12.1/kde3 install, no entries are placed in
the /var/log/messages file. When a "mount /dev/sr1 -t iso9660 /media"
command is given in a console, The error message on the console is:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
and the entry in /var/log/messages is:
Aug 26 13:14:09 s121k3prod su: (to root) root on /dev/pts/1
Aug 26 13:15:02 s121k3prod kernel: [ 935.148430] ISOFS: Unable to identify
CD-ROM format.

Combined with this problem I registered on the KDE3 user list:

and this on Bugzilla:

leads me to believe that there is a fundamental flaw in KDE 3.5 recognising
certain types of iso9660 formats on cd's, dvd's and on usb flash/thumb
