writing an mp3 to an audio cd


The goal is to create a cd that plays in a regular audio cd music player
I tried it with serpentine and k3b, it seems to work (i.e. the burning process does not complain about anything) but the cd does not play, neither in a cd player nor with amarok or totem, totem says "Totem could not play 'cdda:/'." and amarok says "could not start process Unable to crate io-slave: klauncher said : Unknown protocol audiocd"

I run xubuntu 7.10, with various bits of KDE installed (e.g. k3b, with libk3b2_mp3)

I have a rewritable cd that I want to use, and a DVD RW that seems to recognise the cd ok.

Ideas, anyone?

Regards,

Peter

It is most likely the cd-rw media you are using. If you also can't create a workable audio cd in windows using this media, then for sure it's the media. Try a different brand of cd-r or cd-rw media.

yep, that seems to do the trick ... I tried several cd-r brands, all worked, none of the cd-rw worked ... see if I can find some more ...

thanks,

Peter

In my experience most standalone cd players just don't seem to handle cd-rw very well, if at all. They generally do just fine with regular cd-r's though.
