create an image using k3b


How may I create an image using k3b. Its my first time and I just want to create an image so it doesn't convert all the songs to wav's everytime I burn a CD(Multiple copy's not all at once, on today and another maby tomorow etc..).

Should be some 'tick' boxes when you click Burn, in there you can choose to create image only.

Cool

Yeah "Create image only" I clicked that and all I get is a bunch of waves, no image.

Maybe you are getting both?

It should at the very least be creating that image... Odd. You could do it via the command line with mkisofs, however, K3B should be creating that image for you.

I'll try to remote-view my computer (not at home) to see what I have working for me.

Cool

Ahh, I haven't burned an audio CD since switching to FC4, it'll take me a minute, I've got to add mp3 support.

Will let you know when I get this all done.

Cool

Heh

Well, it looks like it just calls cdrecord with the -audio addon, this creates an audio CD without having to create an image. It's nice, but it's not what you want

You have a couple of options:

You can create the image from the command line, though this may be tedious if you have a lot of songs, or if you have songs with the same name but different file extension (mp3, wav) using mkisofs.

I believe if you save the project and then recall the project in k3b, it may not have to re-encode those files as wavs each time.

You can just convert the collection to wav's and not remove the files afterwards.

Other than those options, not sure what else you could do, at least using k3b only.

Good Luck!

Cool

since audio cds have no filesystem you cant create a iso9660 iso image of an audio cd. You can make a iso9660 cd with the wave files burn to cd

You can't make an .iso from an audio CD. You may be confused by Nero's behaviour. On windows, if you look carefully, Nero Burning Rom makes an .nrg image, not an iso, from music files (or videos). This is nero's own image format that they made specifically for this sort of thing. Since k3b doesn't have its own image format and only supports making .iso images, which you cannot make from an audio CD, it just applies any options you specified for your music, like normalising it, and puts all your music files into a new directory so you can burn them manually to a real CD when you want to.

You can create an iso of an audio cd. Using mkisofs you can create a filesystem with the 'wav' files in it, burn that iso to a CD, plop it in a car stereo that only plays audio CD's (not mp3's etc.) and it will play this music.

Just to clarify, it certainly can be done; just not using these mentioned graphical frontends that don't understand what you are trying to do.

Cool
