k3b; cdrecord; cdda2wav PROBLEM!
AMD Athlon XP 2000
256 Mb Memory
kernel 220.127.116.11-108 default
k3b-0.11.17-3suse91.i686.rpm & devel
1.- I cannot do audio CD copies using normal mode in k3b, because songs get extrange noises, although the copy itself does perform. I have studied the problem and I think it is because the wav files created to do the copy get some kind of corruption. Maybe cdda2wav problem?
2.- I cannot do audio CD copies using clone mode unless I use the option to only create the image and afterwards burn the image in another process. However, the image created is often too big for a 700 Mb CD-R, even when I am copying from a CD copy originally burnt into a 650 Mb CD-R! This is very extrange for me.
I think that I didn't have those problems when I had the original configuration os Suse 9.1, nevertheless, I tried to go back to original kernel, k3b, cdrecord, cdda2wav and it did NOT solve the problem.
Researching into the problem I knew that Suse linux does not use the original versions of cdrecord and cdda2wav, so I seeked the original ones. I was pointed to the cdrtools 2.01. However, I didn't find a rpm with it and I was unable to compile it in my system. To compile I used: first GNU make -no success-, then I installed the smake rpm and tried with it -no success either-. I've read the documentation of cdrtools and although I AM A NEWBYE, I think I followed the instructions. In both cases -make or smake- the compilation seems to finish (after the make install or smake install, of course). But then if I try to use cdrecord in the Konsole I am told that "bash: cdrecord: command not found". I don't understand anything. Why is linux so difficult?
Could any of you help me?
I would thank easy language.
Thanks in advance!!!
-According to my first message at this forum,, I have found a way to solve the PROBLEM Nš1: In advanced options -normal mode-, I had paranoia mode 0. Now, if I use a diferent mode (1,2,3) there are no extrange noises at the copied Audio CD. Will I have quality loss using paranoia? Which mode is good enough taking into account speed-quality?
-However (let's call this PROBLEM Nš 3), in normal mode I must not choose ON THE FLY. Otherwise, COPY IS VERY SLOW. I use a CDROM 52X and a CDRECORDER 44x, and in Winblows XP it works quite good. Any ideas?
-About PROBLEM Nš2, in clone mode, if I try to burn the image sometimes it get burnt, but then the system will not recognize the copy as an Audio CD, and though a DiscMan will play it, only the first songs are ok, but the folowing ones are corrupted.
Today I have updated the kernel to 2.6.5-7.111 through YaST and PROBLEM 1 and 3 have just dissapeared.
About PROBLEM 2 -clone mode- the Audio CD get completely cloned, and they are recognized by a normal Diskman, with no errors in the songs. THE ONLY EXISTING PROBLEM now is that no program will recognize the Audio CD in the computer.
