Post by edcompsci » Sat Oct 13, 2018 12:45 pm

Has anyone seen this error trying to burn a cd?

Code: Select all

mp3cd -v *.wav
Cleaning up...
rm -f /tmp/suchandsuch.toc /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/tool-output.txt /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/tag.data /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.wav /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.flac /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.m4a /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.mp3 /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.ogg /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.unknown-format /tmp/mp3cd-suchandsuch/*.wav
rm -f tag.data
01: [...]/suchandsuch.wav
/usr/bin/gst-launch-1.0 -t filesrc location=01.wav ! decodebin
Could not extract tags: Inappropriate ioctl for device

Hi edcompsci,

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

You can create an audio CD using many different desktop GUI applications and console terminal command apps, search for audio cd, including "K3b" CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc app, xfburn, simpleburn, Nero for Linux, etc... I would recommend using the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" searching for "audio cd" and when installing an application right-click it to see if there are any recommended and or suggested packages to install as well. You can use the same process for searching for mp3 tag or audio tag, etc...

"If a failure happens, earlier stages can be skipped with the '-s' flag. The file "tool-output.txt" in the temp directory can be examined to see what went wrong during the sage. Some things are time-consuming (like writing the WAVs from MP3s) and if the CD burn failed, it's much easier not to have to start over from scratch. When doing this, you will not need the m3u file anymore, since the files have already been built. See the list of stages using '-h'. "

This script implements the suggested methods outlined in the Linux MP3 CD Burning mini-HOWTO: http://tidp.org/HOWTO/MP3-CD-Burning/

Hope this helps.

Seems that the link above is dead. Sorry.
But, this one works: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/MP3-CD-Burning/
