Hi Guys,

I've just discovered another K3B issue !

I had not noticed this before, simply because I don't normally make 
more than one CD/DVD burn !  However I needed to make two copies of 
the same DVD.  The first one copied, burnt and verified just fine.  
It took about 20 minutes.  The second one took nearly two hours to 
burn and verify.

On a hunch I checked the DMA settings.  It seems that the DMA had been 
switched off after the first DVD had been verified.

Normally I wouldn't have noticed since the DMA is switched on for all 
drives during boot up.  Going into YAST and looking at DMA shows that 
it has been switched off for the CD/DVD rom drive.  YAST will turn 
DMA back on if you re-select it. 

Best Regards:
