View Full Version : [ubuntu] K3b Won't Burn Ripped Songs to CD

June 2nd, 2010, 07:35 AM
I ripped 2 music CDs for a total of 78 minutes, but K3b won't burn them to a blank CD-R. It says the free space in temporary folder is 615.5 MB, but the size of project is 691.5 MB. I don't know why the tmp directory is that small when I have 615 GB free on my filesystem. When I start the burn, it simply says copying, but nothing shows up in the progress bars. I am able to burn direct copies of CDs, however. After a couple of tries and a couple of successful burns of entire CDs, I tried again, and it crashed.

Seems like K3b is only good for duplicating discs. I've often had problems when trying to create my own play list compilations by ripping selecting songs and combining to burn a custom disc. Extremely frustrating!

Got it to work. For whatever reason, when I drag and drop songs from a CD to my custom project, then rip, it lists them as "CD Track". Instead, I rip each source CD first, and the songs show up as .ORB type. Then I drag the songs to my custom project, and finally burn the CD. I don't know why .ORB works, but not CD Track type.
