Question I need help!! ASAP


I just downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 but I can not get my Gnomebake cd/dvd burner to work. It will let me post the songs and it will show completed but when I try to play the disk it has no files burnt to the disk. I did un install/install but had the same action.What do I do??

if you were able to install Ubuntu using the same CD/DVD drive then it is indeed working! to get a sold proof, try to insert any CD/DVD with data & check if your system will be able to read its content.

Try to burn anything other than music & check if it works! lets us know, so we can give you more tips on how to tackle this issue.

I just installed 10.04 today on a hard drive and what I show here works fine after my fresh install and tweaks. I use a Canadian server I choose in Synaptic.

In terminal

PHP Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade 
PHP Code:
sudo apt-get purge brasero 
and for your install, perhaps
PHP Code:
sudo apt-get purge gnome-baker 
Then
PHP Code:
sudo apt-get -f install k3b 
This will add KDE core and may take a while. It should give a more usable GUI-based burning program in k3b. To do DVD copy, continue with
PHP Code:
sudo apt-get build-dep k9copy && sudo apt-get install k9copy 
I just use wodim when I want to be sure of a good, reliable burn in Debian-based distros; likewise, use cdrecord with Slack-based distros -- both from the command line. But K3B should do you for now.

Welcome to Linux and LQ!

Best wishes!

Please do not use titles like "I need help, ASAP". It is very annoying and doesn't give any information about your problem. It will not get you help any faster; quite the contrary. Read the "Sticky" at the top of this forum.

Are you trying to copy files (.mp3, .ogg, etc) to a cd or are you trying to copy an audio cd image (iso) to your cd disk? The procedure is different for the 2 cases.

Your initial post suggests you were trying to burn and audio cd.
Quote:

I don't understand what "it will let me post the songs mean". If you are trying to burn/play an audio cd then there are no files involve but rather an image of the cd. If you are able to express yourself a bit more clearly about what you have done and how your system responds to what you have done, then somebody might be able to help you.
ciao,

It (gnomebaker) will let me attach songs to be recorded (that is what I meant by post)but it will not burn them to disk! So I tried to make a data disk to see if it would burn data but that did not work either. It will play audio cd's and Dvd's so its not my player it must be the program are something that I am not doing right. Now can you help me are not.

I'm finding it very very hard to understand what you want to do. What is the source of your songs (where exactly are they coming from) and what is the target (where do you want to them to wind up)? If your source is an audio CD and you want files (mp3, ogg, wav, etc) then you need to use a CD-ripper. As things stand I don't know what you want to do.

Hello saab9002,

this may be a problem of your permissions. Please open a terminal and execute the command:
Code:
groups
not! as root but the normal user and post the output here. Another point is to start the burnerprogramm from the commandline (open a terminal and type gnomebaker) and look at the errormessages. And please read the manpage and this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnomeBaker

Also chekc if you are using blank CDs. It can also just be that the music you want to copy is too much for the disk, so check the space you will be needing. This could even go as far as a broken laser (what writes the disc).
