transfer track from CD to hd - blank .wav file produced.


Using xcdroast (I think it uses cdrecord and stuff like that) to pull a music track off a CD and put it on the hard drive, preparatory to burning the music track (now a *.wav file) onto a blank (multi-session, TAO) CD. The CD is on an external CD/DVD read/writer which plugs into the USB port.

The resulting .wav track is blank except for a tiny bit at the begining and about half-one % at the end. Know *nothing* about CD burning. Is problem that the thing is copy protected perhaps? cdcd won't play the music CD, but it will play it on the internal CD-drive. Great thanks any suggestions at all.

Try a different app, perhaps Sound Juicer or Grip.

Choose a link from here: http://www.google.com/search?client=...utf-8&oe=utf-8 for Sound Juicer or here: http://nostatic.org/grip/ for Grip.

It might be the usb writer. I tried using a CD-RW connected via usb and got pretty much the same result, partial files, whether I use xcdroast or k3b. Both apps had no problems doing the same write with my internal DVD-RW.

I've just ripped an audio-cd to wav with my usb writer using k3b and all the files playback fine!
