Unhappy Cannot copy audio CD!

hey guys,

Bare with me here. Some of my keys arent woking on my keyboard!

I really need some help with copying an audio cd. Ive gone through all the how-tos on cd-writing and setting up scsi emulation for ATAPI cd drives. Ive made all the changes to the kernel and rebuilt and installed the new kernel. cdrecord -scanbus shows the two drives as scsi drives now, so im pretty sure ive got the configuration right. Ive also change my lilo.conf and fstab files to point to the new scsi devices. But when i try to use KOnCd to copy a cd i get an error. Could anyone please help?! All output and configuration files are below.

Here is my hardware configuration:

- IDE/ATAPI cd-r drive (Plextor plexwriter) as the master on the secondary IDE channel

- IDE/ATAPI cd-rom drive (dont know the manufacturer) as the slave on the secondary IDE channel.

Here is the line from my lilo.conf:

append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

Here are the lines from my fstab:

/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdr /media/cdr auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

Here is the line i added to modules.conf:

alias scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi

Here is the output from KOnCd while trying to copy a cd:

Sending CUE sheet...

cdrecord: Track 1 has unknown length.
cdrecord: Cannot send CUE sheet.

cdrecord: fifo had 1 puts and 0 gets.
cdrecord: fifo was 0 times empty and 0 times full, min fill was 100%.

Error, Exit status: 255

By the way, I cannot mount the drives when audio cds are in the drives, but i read somewhere that you cannot mount audio cds. Is this true? I can, however, mount BOTH drives when data cds are in the drives. I have also successfully burned a cd with data files using cdrecord, so i am sure my burner works.

if you're sure the burner works, why did you spend all that time describing it?

i'd guess it's just your burner program being shitty *cough*KDE*cough*, try anotehr one, and make sure your version of cdrecord is upto date (1.10 is the current stable)

also seeing as you did describe the system, i'd certanily remove the scsi for the normal rom drive.

no you can't mount audio cd's, why would you want to? you just directly copy the image.

try copying a cd just with...

cdrecord -v -pad speed=12 dev=0,0,0 driveropts=burnproof -isosize /dev/hdf

well.. your equivalent rather. if that works then it's your front end being shit. try gtoaster or gcombust maybe

Thanks for the quick response. The reason I put the cd burner info in the post is so whoever read it would have as much info as possible about my machine and to also see the steps I had already taken. You were right. It was my front end software. I downloaded gcombust and everything works fine now. Thanks for your help!
