Thread: Burn a CD

  1. #1

    Burn a CD

    For the first time since I started using Linux, I am trying to burn a CD. I have tried KOnCD, eroaster, CDRoast and KreateCD with no luck at all. Each one has a different problem. KOnCD tells me it is getting Error 2 everytime I start to burn the CD when it is trying to convert the MP3s. Eroaster just stopped and exited, etc.

    My question is, is there something special I have to do as far as my CD writer itself? Or, what is a good program to use to write?

    As usual, thanks!

    Re:Burn a CD

    ya need append scsi hcx or domething in the lilo.conf file. i can get ya the exact syntax if ya don't.
    what about just plain writing files?
    what does cdrecord --scanbus sow (as root)

    This is what it shows:

    I set it to the recorder, but I cant get any program to write anything. If you can get me exactly what I need, it woudl be great. Thanks.

    I think if you run lilo you have to make sure you have.
    for example if your burner is hdc
    (don't forget to run lilo -v after you've edited lilo.conf)
    and look at the output for any errors before you reboot.

    and if you use grub it's slightly different
    for example: (taken from an old rh8 install)
    root (hd1,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-17.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
    initrd /initrd-2.4.18-17.8.0.img


    and then to do a test using an iso file to verify if the system is correct
    you can do this:

    cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=0,0,0 isofile.iso

    and change the speed parameter to whatever applies to your recorder,
    and dev= to whatever the "cdrecord -scanbus" gives you.


    if nothing else maybe this will help you find a possible error in
    your configuration.

    good luck..

    Thanks for the tips, I have to go to work now, so I will check into it later. The thing is, both in KONCD and ERoaster, there is a similar problem. In KONCD it starts to convert the MP3s and it gets an error. In Eroaster, it starts the same thing, but just sits there and does nothing. I will work on your suggestions later.

    kenhan, thats perfect, saves me from having to look it up
    maybe you have a problem with the mp3 exporter.
    does it work with just a normal file?
    xmms has a output plugin called diskwriter, you can use that to change mp3s to wav and burn them

    ps, refering to the other post about what device your drive is, its either hdb, hdc or hdd.
    hdb is slave primary
    hdc is master secondary
    hdd is slave secondary
    looks like you have some symlinks set up.
    ls -l /dev/cdwriter will tell hyou what device it is

    Re:Burn a CD

    Hey Guys, does this make sense, it says my writer is dev/sr0?

    Re:Burn a CD

    Ok, well I followed your advice and the advice from Suse and now the recorder is scd0. I was able to burn regular files, but I still cant burn mp3's.

    Re:Burn a CD

    I am still a little bit confused ???
    When I add that hdX=scsi-die to the lilo.conf, should the device be the CD reader or the CD Recorder?

    My reader is hdc, and the writer is sr0.

    I added it as hdc.

    Re:Burn a CD

    its the writer, because thats what you are emulating scsi on.
    it should also have a hdx name. if the reader is hdc, then im guessing the writer is hdd.

    what do you mean you can't write mp3s? do you mean as an audio cd? try using the xmms diskwriter instead.
