    Default K3B Audio CD burn fails


    Hi,

    I recently installed OpenSuse 11.1 (i586) on a new laptop (HP 6710b)
    all has been going well, until I tried to burn audio CDs with K3B using
    .wav files in a directory in the format 01.wav 02.wav 03.wav etc.

    To burn the audio CDs I have been running K3B as root to avoid any
    potential permission issues. I now have a stack of cd 'coasters' with
    only one lucky success using the command line, which when the exact
    command was repeated failed again.

    I have successfully burnt 2 data DVDs using K3B, one as root the second
    as user, both without problem - so maybe it is not a permissions
    problem?

    I am using K3b 1.0.5 in KDE 4.1.3. (it runs under KDE3)
    I have not been able to run k3bsetup it is not part of the
    installation. However permissions appear correctly set-up I also added
    the appropriate users to the group disk.

    /dev/cdrom lrw-rw---- root disk (just points to /dev/sr0)
    /dev/sr0 -rw-rw---- root disk

    /usr/bin/cdrecord lrwxr-xr-x root root (just points to
    /usr/bin/wodim)
    /usr/bin/wodim -rwxr-xr-x root root

    K3b uses the executables in /usr/bin/x11/ which are just the same.
    I have not put suid on anything. I tried running cdrecord as a user,
    however the burn failed.

    I checked the .wav files and they play fine in kaffeine.
    I am using the same brand of blank CDs as the DVDs.
    I have not had the occasion to try a data CD I've run out of blank
    disks for the moment.

    K3b detects my DVD/CD burner as:

    The system device is /dev/sr0
    interface Generic SCSI
    Vendor HL-DT-ST
    Description DVDRAM GSA-T40L
    Firmware KC07

    I tried burning audio CDs in both TAO and DAO mode, neither with
    success.

    Here is an example shortened K3b output:

    The above failed after completing track one.

    After this I resorted to using the following command line, as root in
    the appropriate directory:

    cdrecord dev=/dev/cdrom -v -eject -driveropts=burnfree speed=10 -audio
    -pad *.wav

    Similar result, sometimes it fails in track 2, sometimes it gets to the
    end, but the CD won't be readable in any player. I also tried different
    .wav files with no success.

    What's going wrong?

    Hope someone has some ideas.

    Thanks in advance.
