CD burning? Static? problems....


I was curious how you guys burn audio cds. I tried to burn a CD from MP3 files with K3b, but it doesn't support converting the MP3 to a WAV format or to an audio format that can be played on a typical CD player.

So, I used Audacity to convert all teh files to wav files...yeah only SOME of the tracks worked, even though ALL of them were converted to WAV format. I'de drag it over and it'd say "unsupported format" like it said when I tried to drag the MP3 file over...WTF?

I tried to use CD Bake Oven, and it seemed like it converted over fine, "uncompressing files" then burning them.....and it even said entire cd burned successfully. Then I load it into a CD player, and it's static. No songs, just static. Yeah, the right number of tracks, and length of songs are there, but it's static, no music.....

Do I need a plug-in or something?

Are there any good programs to DL?

k3b doesn't support mp3? I'm pretty sure I've burnt mp3's with it (I'll check as soon as my brother lets me reboot out of windows)
And if you want to convert mp3 to wav, I suggest getting mplayer and running "mplayer -vc dummy -vo null -ao pcm filename.mp3"

Nope....wierd.....

On CDBAKEOVEN it says it's burned sucessfully, but when I play it in a CD player...it's all static. No song with static, just static. It also has the correct amount of tracks of static. i.e if the CD has 12 tracks, there are 12 tracks......of static.

Don't know if this has anything to do with it, but after it's converted to WAV, after the CD is ejected, I get an error saying unable to remove it from the tmp directory......but the CD was burned sucessfully....

I have mplayer....hmm....I'll try to convert it to WAV, and see if it works when converted that way. Cause on Audacity...they're converted as WAV files, but for some reason, when tried to move some of teh converted files, it says it's not supported.....WTF?

oicdn,

When you use k3b are you selecting to create a new audio project by:

File > New Project > New Audio Project

Then dragging mp3's from their current HD directory to the audio trackilist window in k3b?
(sorry if that sounded too simplistic)

Also, check the requirements on your system for k3b (i.e. plugins, packages) are met:
http://k3b.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/i...l/requirements

Hope this helps. Happy New Year.

Regards
LG.

How do I check which packages/plugins I already have?

Yeah, I select the little key that says "create an audio CD" and I drag the songs over from the directory on my HD, but when I release it in the "drag to field" it says I'm trying to use a file not supported...WTF?

And on some files, ONLY SOME, not all, when converted to wav, even though are wav files, I get the same error.

I'll try to DL those other plugins/packages, but where do I go to check which packages I already have....hmmm...I'll go snooping around my file directory...can't hurt anything if nothing is moved, LOL.

oicdn,

I'm on a windows PC now so I can't quote as verbatim, but in the k3b options window, there's a programs section, this lists the underlying program/packages used by k3b, once you note what is there, you can google around and find the latest stable versions, then install it using the yast util in suse (not too familiar with it, I'm on mandrake).

Good Luck.
LG

Yeah, I looked at it last night, I only have the following:

Audio Decoder:
K3B OggVorbis Decoder vers 1.0
K3B Wave Decoder vers 1.0

Audio Encoder:
K3B OggVorbis Encoder vers 1.0

That kinda sucks...LOL. I went to search for my libmp3lame.so executable and pasted it into my packages in my user directories, shared directories, and opt directories for the k3B files and it's like nothing has happened. Dunno what to do.....
