Thread: CD errors (I think?)

  1. #1

    Default CD errors (I think?)

    Hi all,

    Over the last couple of days I have been trying to rip some audio CD. This has not gone as smoothly as I had hoped. Applications (Amarok/Rhyumbox/K3b/etc) seemed not to be handling CDs correctly?

    So, I went and had a look at my log files. This is a small section of my /var/log/warn file:

    Code:
    May  3 11:09:34 gzunder kernel: [12761.472327] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 8
    May  3 11:09:34 gzunder kernel: [12761.474022] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 64
    May  3 11:09:34 gzunder kernel: [12761.474024] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 8
    May  3 11:09:35 gzunder kernel: [12761.603835] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 64
    May  3 11:09:35 gzunder kernel: [12761.603837] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 8
    May  3 11:09:35 gzunder kernel: [12761.605618] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 64
    May  3 11:09:35 gzunder kernel: [12761.605619] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 8
    May  3 11:09:48 gzunder kernel: [12775.420081] sr1: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda pop-up
    May  3 11:10:18 gzunder kernel: [12804.641353] end_request: I/O error, dev sr1, sector 64
    May  3 11:10:18 gzunder kernel: [12804.641357] Buffer I/O error on device sr1, logical block 8
    May  3 11:10:18 gzunder kernel: [12804.647161] end_request: I/O error, dev sr1, sector 64
    May  3 11:10:18 gzunder kernel: [12804.647164] Buffer I/O error on device sr1, logical block 8


    This shows a session firstly from an audio CD in an IDE device (/dev/sr0), then from an external USB CD and different audio CD (/dev/sr1). The gray text is the separator.

    My assumption from this is that:
    a) The media is okay - different audio CDs
    b) The drives are okay - different drives
    c) The motherboard hardware is okay - IDE and USB interfaces

    Any suggestions on where/how to look will be most welcome. I know, the first reaction is to suggest "If it works then its okay". But I don't know if the CDs are beeing read corectly or not and I don't like error logs that can't be attributed to something.

    Regards, Martin

    Lets just be clear.
    This is 2 different drives in the same machine?
    Previously OK?
    Connector type? Both the same? Not both on One cable (if IDE)?

    Version of openSUSE? Did you just have a kernel update?

    Yes.
    The first is on IDE channel 0, on its own cable and jumper set to master. (/dev/sro)
    The second is an external USB (/dev/sr1)

    Previously OK?
    Previous to what? I have not tried using the CDs in this way (ripping) before.

    Version of openSUSE? Did you just have a kernel update?
    #uname -a
    Linux gzunder 2.6.37.6-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREMPT 2011-04-25 21:48:33 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Does that answer the question? The red text is my emboldening. Why times-three?

    It's not particularly that I think the packages are the fault, but I'd rather know they were correct.
    k3b is not the packman one, but it shouldn't matter. But other stuff may be that way too. So I encourage you to do this:

    I'm assuming you are actually using kde so here

    Yes, I am.

    I'm not physically at this box right now. I'd like to keep an eye on the console if I'm going to get this close to the OS, so if I may, I'd like to put that off until I get home tonight.
    I'll report back tomorrow.
