Problem when burning audio cd in linux mint.


I was trying to burn cd multiple times in linux but it never worked out. I have tried k3b, brasero and xfburn, but it never worked out. When i tried to burn an audio cd in k3b(I had installed all the dependencies btw) it wold start burning, then I would wait it out and finally it would eject the cd and say success burn complete. I would then insert the cd back in and it would show up as a blank cd. It was the same thing with brasero but it was a bit different with xfburn. It would start burning, but then an error would pop up saying: drive is not sutable for burning, even dough it burns fine in windows and my cd drive is a legit burner. For all thease tests I was trying to burn a audio cd. My cd/dvd drive is a TSSTcorp CDDVDW SN-208AB (TO04).

I've not encountered this, but I have a few notions for testing.

For testing purposes, have you tried burning a data file to a blank disk to see whether you get the same result?

k3b offers a setting to test the disk after writing in complete. Have you checked the box for that, and, if so, what happened?

You could try starting the burning program from the command line. It might throw some useful errors to the terminal.

Have you tried actually playing it in a media player?

I also observed something that I forgot to add. When the cd would eject it would not be warm at all.

By dependencies I assume you mean all the necessary plugins to read your audio file format? What type of audio files do you have?

K3b and brasero and xfburn can create audio CDs on the fly but they need plugins. The latter two need the gstreamer plugins. Just to verify you are using a CD and not DVD disk?

If you can't burn a data CD the there could be hardware problems.

Yes, I do have gstreamer plugins and yes im using a cd. I tried using multiple cd's. The thing is it can read cds but it can't burn them.

Can you post the results of the commands:
Code:
ls -l /dev/sr0
and
Code:
groups
while logged in as your normal account (the one you're using to run k3b/brasero/whatever).

Not sure about how Mint has set permissions on the CD/DVD device but it could be an easy-to-solve security problem.

No, I have added myself to the groups to have permissions. So, let me explain. I have a ssd and a hdd. My linux install is on the ssd, and my old windows install is on the hdd. I took out my ssd and put in my hdd to test if it would burn. Turns out its a hardware problem

I am sorry for not doing this earlier and for wasting someone's time. You have all been very generus to me and I thank you for trying to help me. Peace.

If it was a USB drive I'd say use a powered USB hub. Also check that your content does not exceed 700MB. And some older CD players falter with discs > 650MB. But you can only get 700MB blanks these days. And the quality of discs is questionable IMO. Many sit on shelves exposed to UV light (window), which degrades them. Some have so little a coating on them, they are transparent and unburnable. Just saying with drives that burn, it's likely a hardware problem. Perhaps the PSU isn't powerful enough. Drives that burn when used to burn also tend to fail after so many burns (100-ish). Of course you have to have a success story to know that it's not "you", but the hardware.

When i tried to burn an audio cd in k3b(I had installed all the dependencies btw) it wold start burning, then I would wait it out and finally it would eject the cd and say success burn complete. I would then insert the cd back in and it would show up as a blank cd.
Audio CDs are created completely different from data CDs, you may not see anything in a file manager because they don't have a normal file system on them.

Did you try playing it in a CD player?
