Recommended burning apps?


I've read a bit on the topic around the forums, but I want to ask peoples' opinions anyway...

Are there any other burning programs (for audio) out there other than k3b with decent interfaces? I can never get k3b to work (although my burner works). I've also tried xcdroast, which looks like it could be okay, but I can't figure out how to select the source mp3 files. (Anybody know how to do that?)

I plan to try gnometoast (or gtoast) as well.

You have to convert the mp3s to wav format yourself before xcdroast can use them.

Check out gtoaster. By simply dragging your mp3s, oggs, etc. into the "Track" section, it will automagically convert them to wav and burn as CDA for you when you burn.

Try k3b. Nice interface and very functional.

k3b is the best. a lot like nero and you dont have to do any encoding befor eyou burn mp3's. it does it all for you. when you tried k3b did you compile it from source? if not try that.

yes. here's the info on my burner...


1) currently i can eject cdrecorder (my burner) or eject cdrom (my CD-ROM)

>>>ls -al /dev/cd*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 19, 128 2002-09-09 16:24 /dev/cdouble0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 19, 129 2002-09-09 16:24 /dev/cdouble1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2004-02-24 19:20 /dev/cdreader_old -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2004-02-26 01:16 /dev/cdrecorder -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2004-02-24 20:27 /dev/cdrecorder_old -> sr0

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2004-02-24 19:19 /dev/cdwriter_old -> scd1

2)here's my /etc/fstab:
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb1 /data1 auto noauto,user 0 0
/dev/hda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0

#/dev/scd1 /cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
#/dev/sda1 /media/sda1 auto noauto,user,exec 0 0 #HOTPLUG B3Fu.mrp5DZ2Q9VE


3) here's what i get in /var/log/messages (things that look interesting to the topic):

actually you probably dont need to do that. some programs look for /dev/cdrom by default but k3b goes and detects your burner for you. Make sur eyou have scsi emulation enabled for your drive and make sure you have permission to use all of the programs k3b uses. i.e. cdrecord etc. all those goodies

cdrecord gets a checkmark by k3b_setup. this is really frustrating. i should be used to the linux frustrations by now. oh well, i won't go there.

i just tried burning in k3b as root, and it looks like it's working. no idea if it'll make it the whole way through, because it's tricked me before. i just re-ran k3b_setup (without it killing my machine). just for edification purposes, here's my /etc/fstab

/dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb1 /data1 auto noauto,user 0 0
/dev/hda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0
#/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
#/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0
#/dev/scd1 /cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
#/dev/sda1 /media/sda1 auto noauto,user,exec 0 0 #HOTPLUG B3Fu.mrp5DZ2Q9VE

i'll let you know what happens.

i do know one thing though, k3bsetup saw my cd rom, but didn't seem to know anything about it. weird.

youre not answering my question. do you have scsi emulation enabled. you have to have scsi enabled for you to be able to burn anything.

i answered "yes" in my 3:13 p.m. post. sorry for the confusion. yes, it is enabled. or at least i turned it on when rebuilding the kernel. i'm not sure how to be 100% sure it's built in.

i do have (as shown above) the following in my /var/log/messages file:


Feb 27 02:22:39 raphael kernel: scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

not sure if that means it's on for IDE as well or not...?

I installed K3b on my RH9 with no problems. I did expect to have trouble with my device because it's an ATAPI (bus? something having to do with the mobo), and the site warned about those issues, saying that I'd have to instead detect via ide-scsi (or something like that, I'm still awfully new to this). However, I didn't, it read my device just fine after I made one change. And that one change I did have to make was that K3b had automatically detected my cd-rom as /dev/cdrom, which is incorrect, it's /dev/scd0. Made that one little change, and voila. I have a very hard time using X CDRoast, I actually hate that program, just not at all intuitive for me and I understand little of what I'm looking at. However, I can tell you without a doubt that when the bf uses it, he can read and burn mp3's just fine. He had to rewrite.. hell, something in there, just like with Grip.. then again, that was a while ago. <shrug>
