CD Writing


Wondering if anyone could help me out. I cannot burn a CD using K3B. I could burn data and ISO CDs, but now when I try to burn an audio CD it gives me an error. I had made some changes to my /etc/fstab file when trying to get an automounter work, so I think this may be the problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Here is the dubugging output I'm getting:

System

K3b Version:0.11.12

QT Version: 3.3.2

cdrdao

cdrdao comand:

/usr/bin/cdrdao write --device ATAPI:/dev/hdc --speed 4 -n -v 2 --eject --remote 21 /tmp/kde-jon/k3b_audio_6_.toc

The program also gives this initial error:

Using cdrdao 1.1.9
Starting dao writing at 4x speed
Medium or burner do not support writing at 4x speed
Switching down burn speed to 0x
Error while decoding audio tracks
Unlocking drive

I'm going to keep searching for some answers, but so far, nothing.

Hi

I'm also using Slackware 10, and using the K3b package off http://linuxpackages.net (0.11.12).

I get exactly the same error as you do. I have used the same hardware with other versions of k3b and other distros in the past without a problem.

Although I don't have a fix yet (I only struck it today), I do have a workaround, taken from the linuxpackages.net site for K3b for Slack 9.1:

<quote>
Add your drive to /usr/share/cdrdao/drivers in this format: # Drivers for read operations R|TOSHIBA|ODD-DVD SD-R5272|generic-mmc-raw # Drivers for write operations W|TOSHIBA|ODD-DVD SD-R5272|generic-mmc-raw And test if work, in case change and/or add other end string (see instruction to documentation of cdrdao, and other sample to file drivers). Thanks for use my package k3b, bye.
<end quote>

I did this and although it still didn't work initially, I found that setting the Writing Mode to "RAW" in the burning dialog got it going ok.

I suspect the best answer will be to upgrade the k3b and perhaps cdrdao packages.
