I installed lame but still no dice.
automatically ejects disk while trying to encode 1st track with K3B
When I click device both mount and unmount are greyed out
Thanks ,I will keep trying

PS it' a Philips SPD3100l Ram/DvdRw usb drive . It has always worked
before (Hardy Heron live) ripping music and burning Dvds

Here is the debug:

K3b Version: 1.0.5

KDE Version: 3.5.10
QT Version: 3.3.8b
Kernel: 2.6.28-11-generic
HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8164B 0B10 (/dev/sr0, ) [CD-ROM, DVD-ROM] [DVD-ROM, CD-ROM] [None]

PHILIPS SPD3100L M5S2 (/dev/sr1, ) [CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL] [DVD-ROM, DVD-R Sequential, DVD-R Dual Layer Sequential, DVD-R Dual Layer Jump, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW Restricted Overwrite, DVD-RW Sequential, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R Dual Layer, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW] [SAO, TAO, RAW, SAO/R96P, SAO/R96R, RAW/R16, RAW/R96P, RAW/R96R, Restricted Overwrite, Layer Jump]

Is this a permission problem?

Thanks so far Unixchaos

Did you install lame. lame is a mp3 encoder

no... i dont beleive so. but you know there is a very easy way to rip files better and faster right.

open konqueror

make sure the cd is inserted

audiocd:/ <--type that in the url filed and press enter

copy the MP3 folder to where ever you want.

this is also a test. if the mp3 folder has content in it then lame is functioning correctly. if you dont have a folder lemme know what you have.

Davinciman (uknowme1967) said : #5

Yes I installed lame and I can see the files on audocd in the main drive but not on ext. drive. It used to read them from there as well, before lame. I just tried your mp3 ripping trick, which I like a lot, but its all static.
I'll keep trying

Your help is appreciated


unixchaos (jza873) said : #6

do you have gstreamer installed

if you dont or dont know

open add/remove programs and type mp3 it should be the first 3 ones

or you can do them all by hand here is what i got


install that and see if it helps

btw you said its all staticy. can you try playing another mp3 that is on your system and let me know if its all staticy cause if it is iy may be an audio driver problem

Davinciman (uknowme1967) said : #7

It's a new install no media
I have played/ripped music before since install, ogg-vorbis worked but files were huge
Nothing since lame though and now philips drive I was using won't read any more
I looked for gstreamer but didn't see it
I will sudo apt-get for it now


Davinciman (uknowme1967) said : #8

I found it, gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3, installed go
when I open k3b start ripping...command failed lame -h -tt Brown Sugar.... something like that
It's starting to make me crazy
I didn't see near the list you had though

unixchaos (jza873) said : #9

try this sudo apt-get install libmp3lame0 libk3b2-mp3

ha try that lemme know if it works

unixchaos (jza873) said : #10

forget about the previous comment ignor it

libk3b2-mp3 dosnt exist any more so x that one

i forgot install these too

sudo apt-get install libk3b6 libk3b6-extracodecs libmad0 libmp3lame0

install them then in k3b go to

settings-->configure k3b-->plugins and make sure all of them are checked
