K3B Does Not Write to CD


2016-9-24

Tonight I was trying to burn some 50 mp3 tracks I had ripped from an regular audiobook onto a CD using K3B. When I got all done, I was amazed to find that there was nothing on th disc. All along K3B did not show a single error and even displayed the large green word SUCCESS on the screen. The mp3 tracks occupied less than 400 MB. I used to have success with K3B in burning mp3 Cds in the past.

My Linux Mint 17.1 system has 2 GB of RAM and an 80-GB HDD.

I'll appreciate any help from this forum.

As your screenshot shows, you have tried to burn an audio CD. That format only allows 80 minutes of audio, as shown by the status bar at the bottom of the screenshot. The limit is historical, based on the expectation that such a disc would be used in a dumb CD player that would only read the standard format. You could use a search engine with the terms "audio cd 80 minutes" to find further details.
Try putting your files on a data disc instead.

allend,

Thank you very much for your response, which reminds me how I used K3b previously. I also remember resorting to a similar method when burning mp3 files with Sonic in Windows XP in the old days.

Now K3b is still having problems in recognizing a blank CD and reported a missing cdrdao package. I've just re-installed cdrdao and K3b still fails to detect any new CD.

I am attaching 3 error screen-shots. I hope they mean something to you.
Many thanks.

allend,

I've just bypassed my K3b problem by using my more up-to-date Dell laptop to run K3b. After some struggle, I finally managed to burn two different mp3 CDs using the Data Project option. When I attempted to burn the second mp3 CD, K3b told me that I had no permission to use cdrdao. I managed to solve this problem by rebooting and re-running K3b. I must have wasted 6 blank disks. I'll try to buy some CD-RWs or find a simpler and less sophisticated application than K3b.

I really don't mean to appear ungrateful for the free use of K3b, a great application.
