Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • hwcert-client: Why is my BLURAY test failing?
  • The hwcert-client test fails. Command dvd+rw-mediainfo /dev/sr0 outputs this:
kernel: sr0: CDROM (ioctl) error, command: Read TOC/PMA/ATIP 43 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0c 00
kernel: sr: Sense Key : Medium Error [deferred] 
kernel: sr: Add. Sense: Medium format corrupted
  • I see this:
Your device /dev/sr0 supports bd-re, bd-r, bd 

Would you like to test bd-re media? (y|n) response: y

Please insert a good bd-re disc into /dev/sr0 - then continue?  (y|n) response: y
Could not auto-close the tray, please close the tray manually - then continue?  (y|n) response: y
  Tray closed ...

  Verifiying media type: bd-re ... 
Error: could not verify the media type.
"dvd+rw-mediainfo /dev/sr0 " has output on stderr
