The multisession function works for CDs, but not for DVDs.

There is no option to add files after creating a Multisession DVD. Why is it not possible to create a multisession DVD with brasero?

Thank You.

When burning it there is an option called Leave the disc open to add other files later

Brasero Burner

Click on Properties And the following Windows will appear:

Brasero Properties

Other users have reported that turning on DAO in Edit > Modules > growisofs > Settings also helped.

Lastly it also depends on the DVD Recorded you are using. Some models have been known to create this problem. Changing the unit helped.

thankyou for your answer! sadly, the option "leave the disc open to add other files later" or "properties" does not appear when i want to create a dvd. i don't want to burn iso's, just data-dvd's. with cd's , it works, but not with dvd's. – melodram Feb 25 '11 at 19:59
