Have searched but no-one seems to have this problem or sorted it. K3B used to rip Audio CDs to MP3 fine but after an upgrade (sadly not sure which) it stopped. When I click 'Rip Audio CD' in the tools menu nothing happens at all - the settings window which used to pop up to let me choose format etc just doesn't.
CDs play fine in Rhythmbox, and K3B knows that the audio CD is there. Other ripping applications including Sound Juicer seem to have the same problem though. If I tell it to extract mp3s from a CD, the application just closes on me - though this is intermittent. It has worked once or twice.
Any ideas? Please be gentle in posting suggestions, I am a recent migrant from Windows and get a bit scared with command line instructions.
