Cdrecord...


How do i go about getting around these errors that i keep getting? I looked for a config file, but couldn't find one. I have append="hdc=ide-scsi" in lilo.conf; if that matters. Why can't it open /dev/hdc? The permissions are correct and it's playing a cd right now, so i know it works. I also ran cdrecord -scanbus a root and got this output....

try cdrecord -dev=ATAPI --scanbus

to record:

cdrecord -dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 ....

replace 0,0,0 with the appropriate numbers and .... with the rest of the arguments.

did you try as root?

TAO means Track-at-Once, it's a recording mode (supported by most cd-recorders) which records track by track.

try adding the -dao argument to the command.

you might want to search google as well to see if anybody else has encountered similar problems with your drive under linux.

TAO means: track at once

You need to su

burn as root

unless you've changed certain file permissions to allow user the privilege of cd burn, cdrecord

is it an iso file that you to burn to cd?

I use an IDE mine defaults to TAO and it works alright. Oddly, I've an older scsi burner on a different machine and it seems to use something different, not TAO but DAO perhaps (but might not be).

The dev= for scsi drive is minus the ATAPI part. But with an IDE drive you are correct with that the ATAPI in there.

Further info, and, I use a Perl script I got from command line tool section of here:

http://linuxfocus.org/English/Januar...227.meta.shtml

but shouldn't matter as long as all the corect commands and options entered on command line.

for to copy a cd, I just began using this:

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/coasterless.htm

please reply back if you discover something relevant as I like to learn too. Thanks. Good luck.

i'm using the 2.6.8 kernel

Yes it is audio. I am able to burn iso images with the command... cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=ATAPI:0,0,0;eject /home/box/isoimage

But i'm still having trouble with audio... i'm doing it in dummy mode so i'm not wasting cds. This is my first time trying to get this going...

It records, but it sounds like sh*t. Not music in any way! What else am i doing wrong here? and it doesn't record the whole song either, only about 1/3 of it.

There is a laundry list of issues concerning cdrecord and the 2.6.8 kernel. One concerns the security hole that allowed users to send certain commands to the cd drive. Some of those commands could potentially destroy a drive's firmware. The hole was closed in 2.6.8, but cdrecord depended on that for it's function.

The second was a memory leak that meant even if you ran as root, your audio CDs would sound like crap. I tried it and got a bunch of weird-sounding bloops, not what was expected.

The memory leak issue has apparently been fixed in Debian's kernel-source-2.6.8-4 package, but I still cannot burn as a regular user.

My only suggestion would be to try booting with a 2.6.7 kernel or earlier and see what happens.

Well i booted up with Slacks 2.4.26 kernel and it does the same thing, and after doing ls -lh it shows that the MB are about right...

box@LinuxBox420:~/MP3/Godsmack/Godsmack$

This is a back-up of a bunch of MP3's i had on my Winblows box and copied them over to my Linux box with mv /mnt/cdrom/* /home/box/MP3. They play fine on XMMS. Do i have to do something else here?
