K3b 1.0.2 won't make an iso image from a set of .mpg files.


Hi:

1) Project>Properties>Writing: Only create image.
2) Settings>Configure K3b>Notifications>Advanced>Actions:
Log to file.

About 1): At program termination, I get a set of .wav files. Not
my intention.

About 2): I get no log file.

Thanks for your time. Regards.

Are you trying to make a data ISO or a video ISO?

For starters, K3b 1.0.2 is a very old version. The current version is 1.0.5 You might want to update to a newer version.

Have you checked in Settings->Configure K3b... in the Programs section to make sure you have installed all the necessary components to do the job you want to do?

Cheers,
jdk

If I can, I'll stick to the old version, always my preferred
ones. Anyways I've made a blunder at having mentioned ISO.
I'll start from scratch: given the set of .mpg (MPEG1, layer
III) files, my intention is simply to burn them onto a
cd according to the Red Book standard. But I want, for the
moment, only to obtain an image of the disk which would
otherwise be recorded in the removable medium, if this
is possible at all.

Also, by inspecting the log file, I'd later be able to
use one of the programs from the console (they have so
many options...), and then repeat the whole process with
the burning.

The programs k3b FINDS in the hard disk are:
cdrecord
cdrdao
growisofs
dvd+rw-format
mkisofs
readcd
sox

Of these, some are dedicated to the burn process alone,
but I list them for completeness. Thank you very much
for you answer. Regards.

Neither one nor the other.
In fact I've made a blunder at having mentioned ISO.

No need to repeat large chunks of the same message. They are both contained in the same thread. Anyway, do you simply want to burn your files to a data CD? or do you want to create an audio CD that you can play in a CD player? I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to do. Also it's not a really good idea to stick to the old version. Often there are small bugs and later versions fix them. If there are any bugs on the newer versions they will be reported but k3b doesn't release new versions that often and I've had no problems with the latest version which has been out for a while.

cheers,
jdk

Thanks for the advice. I intend to create an audio CD to play in
a CD player. And this I know how to do. So for the benefit of your
patience, I will limit myself to one point.
When a program is instructed to write files (burn) to a data CD,
it can offer the possibility of writing instead an ISO image to,
say, the hard disk, usually as a file named foo.iso. I can later
decide on burning the image onto the CD, and this will be a data CD.
So the concept of the image of a data CD, build from some files,
exists. Is there such a thing as the image of an audio CD?

That's all and I look forward for your answer. Regards.

Just drag an mp3 file into the Current Projects pane of k3b and it will start a new project. When you have the files you want in that pane click on the Project->Properties menu item and then on the Image tab. It will offer you a place to write your CD image file.
Cheers,

Done. But I still get a pretty set of .wav files.
I shall install 1.0.5 and see what happens, but I
doubt the result will be different.
Regards,
Enrique.

If you are open an audio cd project, that is exactly what it is supposed to do. If you want to maintain the files in the same format, open it as a data project.

Just for the record, it's impossible to save an audio cd as an iso file. Iso files contain an iso9660 file system, audiocds have no file system. Hence the technical incompatibility. Not to mention that an iso file can only hold a single fs, which means a single track. Audio cds usually have many of them (many tracks I mean, again, with no fs).

Some programs will save it on a non-standard image format of any kind, which usually is just the equivalent of ripping in wav or flac+cue. It's really the closest you can get. Some of these programs might pretend they save an iso, but they don't (having .iso extension doesn't make the file an iso, just try to mount it and see).

I have no idea if k3b supports wav+cue or flac+cue. In any case, ripping separate files will give you exactly the same contents. I never used k3b for ripping purposes so I really don't know about its capabilities. When I have to do some serious audio ripping I use no other thing than cdparanoia.
