Cool Solved burning problems with KDE (might be useful for you too)


Hi,

A couple of weeks ago someone posted about having problems with cdburing software. I had the same problem with burning CD's in the KDE too; and I discovered it worked when the KDE was not running (ie. with cdrecord in the command line) If the KDE was running, a lot of scsi command errors appeared, and often the kernel got a panic too when aborting the operation!

I've been able to track the problem to some cdr media watcher service in the KDE, and it seams you cannot shut the damn thing down. This service is added when you install CDBakeOven! After removing CDBakeOven, I was able to burn my cd-roms with K3B again

Hope this info helps some others too with their cd-burning problems.

I haven't managed to get k3b to work properly yet. At first it told me that I needed to specify the "generic-mmc" driver - eventually I figured out how to do that, but then it started telling me that it must specify a toc-file.

In the end I gave up in disgust, and figured out how to use cdrdao (the program k3b was invoking) from the command line myself. I have no idea why k3b was failing to specify a cdrdao toc-file, and I had come to the conclusion that it simply didn't work. I have heard people here praising it so I guess that can't be so, but I have no idea why it doesn't work for me.

well perhaps this is a little off topic, and you could post a new topic for this.

However, my quick question would be, did you run the K3B setup program? and do you have "cdrecord" installed too? K3B seams to use both, it depends on the kind of data you're burning (most standard things are done with cdrecord)

but then again, this topic was actually about a solution for other people
