How to create audio DVD with K3B and MP3 songs


Hi folks,
I am using Mandriva 10.1 community and K3B 11.16. Why I want to burn a DVD with mp3 file songs? Because I want to backup my 2000-something mp3 songs.

I did it once (in two DVDs), obtaining a strange result: When I play the songs from the DVD, the first 30 songs or so correspond exactly with its title (for example, with XMMS). But the remaining files are just completely scrambled, in the sense that the title of the song (or file) does not correspond with the melody output; even more, some songs (by clicking the icon) do not produce any sound at all.

What could be the problem? It seems as though k3b lost the identification tags of the mp3 files? that could explain the scrambles, but lack of sound in many of them is even more strange.

Oh well! I just want to know how to backup clean and nice my MP3 songs with k3b. How you guys do it? please share some knowledge. I shall appreciate it very much.

Maxei

Looks like I have asked a tough question since no replies so far. I Must be the only idiot unable to use k3b? the truth is that k3b screwed up my dvd backup. So I'm waiting for guidance.

Did you try the "Feedback" section at the K3B website?

Looks like there's a slight improvement in version availability.

I personally don't use K3B (or KDE) so I can't give you an solid advice other than perhaps disabling any communication with CDDB that may be taking place while you burn. Perhaps K3B is trying to update the MP3 tags as it burns. Look for options to tell it to leave the files alone.

I am also trying to make an audio DVD. I tried this under windows with wave files and it didn't work. http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/howto.shtml

I'm using ubuntu (Gnome)so I probably can't use the program you mentioned without installing alot of unnecessary files

Any suggestions

LOL, I had forgotten about this thread! Since then I been keeping my music files in an external hard-disk connected by USB. This is the most effective way to keep music files IMHO, with no problems of sound or whatever, since the metadata files are also in the same location. I backup my movies in DVD discs though. Cheers
