What cd recording program works


Ive tried Xcdroast, cdrecord and K3b and none of them work. Xcdroast and K3b installed ok with no errors but they will not start without many errors that are to much to fuss with. Is there one that works under slack? I used Xcdroast with mandrake and it was good. Also is cdrtools a cd writing program or a helper program? Thanks

cdrtools is the package that provides the cdrecord and mkisofs programs, and I believe both Xcdroast and K3b are frontends for cdrecord.

It's quite hard to troubleshoot the problem(s) if you don't want to let us know what error messages you get.

Ok ill try to.

When i type cdrecord in console I get this:

Use cdrecord -help
to get a list of valid options.

Use cdrecord blank=help
to get a list of valid blanking options.

Use cdrecord dev=b,t,l driveropts=help -checkdrive
to get a list of drive specific options.

Use cdrecord dev=help
to get a list of possible SCSI transport specifiers.

from here i dont know what to do. When i try xcdroast as root I get this:
Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

and K3b does nothing as root or user, Im not even sure how to start it. K3b?, K3B, K3bSetup none of those work.
Thanks for any help

Read the cdrecord man page.

Try
Code:
   cdrecord -dev=ATAPI -scanbus
If that identifies a drive, for example, 1,0,0 then use
Code:
   cdrecord -dev=ATAPI:1,0,0
And read the man page for the rest - or google for "howto cdrecord".

BTW, k3b works fine for me. Set it up by running k3bsetup, click
the "add device" button, enter your burner device, for example: /dev/hdd.

FYI
I used K3b on my laptop to do a DVD last night and
it went very smooth. I got SuSe 9.0.
So I would say it's not the programs at fault.
Maybe Slack hasn't set it up right or some config is out somewhere.

regards,
billy

This is what i ended up with when i did cdrecord -dev=ATAPI -scanbus:

Cdrecord 2.00.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
scsidev: 'ATAPI'
devname: 'ATAPI'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Using ATA Packet interface.
Warning: The related libscg interface code is in pre alpha.
Warning: There may be fatal problems.
cdrecord: Permission denied. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

and this is what i received when i did: cdrecord -scanbus

xcdroast wouldn't start because you ran it from the console.
run it from a terminal in X.
cdrecord --scanbus
will list the devices.
if you get an error from that, post it. take out that atapi crap.

ide-scsi can be unreliable in the 2.4 kernels - was OK in 2.2 - is on the way out in 2.6. If dev=ATAPI: works on your system - it will may be more reliable than ide-scsi. if using ide-scsi see this note:

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO/sr.html#AEN507

But to get things working try with and without ATAPI.

I anyone is going to be able to help you - you need to be precise about what command you tried and what output you got - otherwise you would be better off studying all the FAQ's and HOWTO's.

The following will tell us whether the system has recognised any burners and from that, what might next be possible:
1) login as root
2) enter the following two commands
cdrecord --scanbus
cdrecord -dev=ATAPI -scanbus
3) post the results here

Your problems are probably related to cdrecord. cdrecord must usually run with root privileges.
chmod 4755 cdrecord, or something like that (-rwsr-xr-x). k3bsetup does the same thing. It is located in KDE directory and therefore is not in root path if you are logged in as another user.

If you are trying to start an X app from user login using root credentials (other user) you must first order X to allow this behavior. That is xhost +localhost. This allows any user and prosess of your computer start an X window.
