View Full Version : [ubuntu] System stopped reading CD song info

February 7th, 2009, 04:18 PM
I've been ripping some original music CDs and putting the stuff on my ipod. Everything was going just fine then the system stopped seeing the song titles, artist info etc. I've tried a number of rippers. Grip, Ripoff, Sound Juicer. None of them can read the titles anymore. I opened up nautilus and looked at the file properties and it just says unknown in all the fields. I could read this before. I can play the music so the player is working.

Does anyone have any idea why this would suddenly stop reading this info?

I was able to read CD after CD for about a day and a half, then things started messing up.

Is there any way the CD laser can turn on in write mode and damage the CD? I know these CDs are not writable but can they be damaged by trying to write to them? I'm thinking not but you never know.

It's almost as if some malicious is going down.
