 Accessing second (external) usb-connected CD drive

 
 by VictorWarner on: Dec 20 2008
 
Score 50%

I would like to use your program with a second external USB-connected CD drive.

When I try to access it (ie File/Add CD tracks) I only get a message/window "No audio CD found".

The external CD drive is recognised by linux and the tracks are shown, eg, in RhythmBox.

I do not seem to see anyway of configuring SoundKonvertor to recognise/access the external CD.

Is there a way of doing this?

the audio cds should be detected by kde, i haven't got much time at the moment and i'm trying to finish version 1.0. maybe it will work with kde4 then, if not please tell me.
if you aren't afraid of compiling soundkonverter you could try to add your device manually.
e.g. add
s.append( "/dev/external_cd" );
to cdmanager.cpp line 62

it just come into my mind that running:
soundkonverter --rip /dev/external_cd
would be simpler. so please try to figure out the name of your cd device and run soundkonverter with these parameters from the console.

 Write M3U's

Wow, it is great that the previous AC posted that same message a dozen times...

It would be great if SK had the option to write an m3u as part of the conversion. It should include the ability for the user to specify the file name or naming method, path method, and whether or not to include extended information. This is a nice app. Thanks.

The .3.8 version won't convert everything that I tell it to and will randomly and silently fail for about 1 song out of 100, and I can't get the .9 version installed because there is no .deb and the source fails with the make command. Anybody know if the .3.9 solves this problem?

The end of one of the logs of one of the failed files looks like this.
SK doesn't even seem to realize that it not being able to move a nonexisting file is a problem.

hm, strange. the "Couldn't rename" error comes from vorbisgain. i have no idea why that happens. i can only suggest to not apply replaygain tags while converting. use the replaygain tool to add replaygain to the converted files, this way the error will not interrupt the conversion.
and if you want you can file a bug report for vorbisgain and send them a file that doesn't work.

I haven't seen any missed songs when replay gain was off, but I haven't really tried that many. This only happens to less than 1 out of 100 songs.

One thing I have noticed though is another anomaly. When playing a few recently converted songs, there was what sounded like a drum beat at the very beginning of a few songs. When I tried reripping the songs using the same settings, the errant sound was still present, so the glitch is persistent. When trying other ripping software, such as gnome's soundconverter, it didn't show up. assuming that both programs would use the same encoder, oggenc, it seems weird that sound distortions would show up in a song ripped from one program but not the other.
Whatever turns out to be causing it, I restored the old mp3s from a backup and am probably going to try something else to convert them. I just wish gnome's soundconverter had the advanced configurability that SK has. It won't even allow custom bitrates.

I found this comment while trying to fix a recently reported bug. Turns out it's the same bug you reported. In case you are interested: https://github.com/HessiJames/soundkonverter/issues/12

 Some wma tags are unreadable

 
 by DWHogan on: Jan 26 2009
 
Score 50%

I am current trying to migrate my music collection for .wma to .ogg to take advantage of ReplayGain (and switch to entirely free software). When I load my collection into SoundKonverter, it is only able to read some, but not all, of my wma tags. I find this very weird, as they were all tagged using the same program, and other programs are able to read all of the tags.

The songs for which the tags are unreadable would have to be retagged by hand after conversion. I have already done this once and am not willing to do so again (it took 30 hours).

The same tags are always unreadable (a reboot does not fix the problem), and I can't find a much of a pattern in which are readable. For some artists, all tags are readable, for others, some tags, and for yet others, no tags. (All Pink's song's tags are readable, but none of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' song's tags are readable).


Is there a known problem/limitation with reading wma tags? Does anyone know of a way to fix this?

Hope all this info wasn't too confusing, and thanks in advance,


Daniel

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
