cd rippage
« on: March 04, 2015, 01:08:40 PM »

not even sure if this is a linux issue, but anyways.  my computer's an asus something, most of it's covered in stickers if there was more information to give.  i run linux mint.  i'm trying to rip my cd's and maybe half will be a success.  i've noticed that whatever program i use won't work.  maybe a file package is missing or something?  i dunno.  google hasn't helped me.  i'll forever be a linux novice, but i can decipher enough to get me where i need be.... if pointed in the right direction

Is Audacity Linux compatible?  If so I'd use that, I don't know of anything audio-wise that it doesn't do well enough for most people.

Maybe you're trying to rip at a speed too high for your optical drive? I haven't ripped a CD in nearly a decade, can't remember if that's even possible, but maybe. Winamp always used to get the job done for me.

I know you could definitely mess things up by trying to write to a disc faster than your drive/disc could support, but can't remember if the same applied to ripping. Failing that, maybe it could be an issue of insufficient memory, but I kind of doubt that in this day and age. Failing that, I would probably just try different software. Also check the CDs don't have any DRM (that was a thing, right? Music DRM?)

Yeah, it was a thing for a minute and a half.

I agree with Lutz's assessment, although I haven't ever used Linux so it might be related to that, too.
