iTunes can't burn CDs

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

iTunes (latest version as of today) on a Windows XP SP2 guest (all available critical and optional updates, as of today) on an Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 dev machine, cannot burn CDs. iTunes simply says something like "Can't find burner or burning software."

Passthrough and all that is enabled. Reading CDs works just fine. Windows and iTunes are detecting the blank CD-R media.

The VBox.log is filled with a ton of errors identical (except the timestamp) to the following:

00:01:52.334 PIIX3 ATA: LUN#2: CD-ROM passthrough command (0x28) error 5 VERR_DEV_IO_ERROR

Duplicate of bug #903.

This might technically be a duplicate, but as long as #903 contains less information (no log files) I'll work with this one. The log file attached clearly shows that passthrough is successfully enabled, but each and every command which is attempted to be sent to the host drive fails.

And the error code is exactly the one I get if I try it out here without a medium in the drive. Is it possible that you put the CD/DVD in the wrong drive? Or (much less likely) do you have insufficient permission on /dev/hda? The user running VBox must have read/write permission to the device representing the CD/DVD recorder.

I also have this issue. Running virtualbox 1.5.6 (passthrough enabled). WinXP home guest, Ubuntu 7.10 amd64 host. Installed Infra Recorder and tried to blank a cd-rw. Had to switch to a virtual terminal and reboot the computer. The light just started blinking on the cd-drive, I could move the mouse in XP and Ubuntu, but no keyboard input other than the ctrl-alt F1 was accepted. I attached the vbox.log above, but the errors were repeats of:

00:07:37.979 PIIX3 ATA: LUN#2: CD-ROM passthrough command (0x5a) error 5 VERR_DEV_IO_ERROR

The cd drive shows up correctly named as the dvd-ram drive, but under device properties, it just shows it as a vbox-cd rom or some such. Tried uninstalling the driver in XP, but it just reinstalled the same one again.

Let me know if I can provide additional information. Thanks, Scott
