Howto: Make compilation AUDIO (NOT MP3) CDs?


How do I make compilation AUDIO CDs i.e. CDs I can play on a common-or-garden CD player?

Can cdrecord do this? I believe Nero can :/ Is there software available for GNU/Linux (I'm using RH9) to do this?

I have no probs (g)ripping CDs and using mkisofs to burn CDs full of MP3s (although the frontends don't work quite right).

I can probably copy whole images too. That's nice but not what I want.

Thanks in advance,

WAV the Microsoft file format? I don't think that will work, my car stereo can't mount a filesystem, its just a CD player. It plays audio CDs. CD Ripping is what you're about. CDDA to MP3. I want to take my favourite tracks from a collection of CDs and copy them onto one compilation CD. There's a piece of software for the M$ platform called Nero Burning ROM which you can copy tracks CDDA to an image back to an audio format. Its merchandise though and not with Linus. : ( You probably have the same dumb machines as me too? Maybe I am the only one left on the planet who hasn't got an MP3 player. : /

Well you could have said so!

cdrecord dev=0,6,0 speed=16 -v -pad -audio track1.wav track2.wav .... trackn

Fairly self-explanatory.

Open it up and tell it you want to burn an audio cd. then drag and drop your mp3s into the window. it will burn them in CDA format. just like Nero.

Nice frontend. It didn't work. I burnt five tracks at 2x. 'Success!' It said. I can't mount it which is exactly as expected - why would you want to if its an audio CD? It plays like a real audio CD on the laptop, except when I put this audio CD in my car stereo or a discman or whatever it trys to play it and then just spits it out.

Superbondbond correctly pointed out that cdrecord recognises WAV files.
Timdsmith correctly pointed out that K3b had drag&drop and create audio CD functionality.

So I should be able to use Grip to rip a couple of tracks from an audio CD as mp3 or wav and burn them back onto another CD in a different order or whatever and then put that CD in the car stereo and listen to the CD?

Howto: Create Audio CDs

The font of all knowledge on this subject:

http://www.togaware.com/linux/survivor/CD_ROM.html

The problem was I was using a CD-RW (instead of a CD-R) which is why the car stereo is spitting out the audio CDs I have been producing.

Timdsmith gets the nod for introducing me to K3b - a nice frontend for cdrecord, cdrdao etc.
