Ok Scott I got you. You want to rip the CD. That should be easier. Let
me suggest something elementary first. Why don't you
mount your cd as
mount-t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /mnt
You should see you disk mounted and songs like files that you can
transfer to hard disk. Of course you
can convert them latter to some format you like best.
Did you read Gnome project documentation on using sound juser as
*Nautilus-cd-burner does not let me burn CDs or
Totem/Goobox/Sound-juicer cannot find my CD/DVD drive. How can I fix this?*
Nautilus-cd-burner, totem, goobox, and sound-juicer cannot use CD/DVD
drives unless support for those devices is enabled in the kernel, and
the permissions on the device nodes allow write access.
Nautilus-cd-burner, totem, goobox, and sound-juicer talk to CD/DVD
drives through the SCSI CAM subsystem. Therefore, you must make sure you
have the following configured in your kernel:
You must also make sure you have the following configured in your kernel
if you are using an ATAPI CD/DVD drive:
Finally, if you are running GNOME 2.16 or later, you must have HAL
running <http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/faq2.html#q19>, or you will
only be able to burn to an ISO image file.
To figure out which CD/DVD drive you will be using, run the following
command as root:
# camcontrol devlist
Your output will look similar to the following:
<QSI CDRW/DVD SBW-242 UD22> at scbus1 target 0 lun 0 (cd0,pass0)
The devices in parentheses at the end are important. You must make sure
the /dev entries for those devices are writable by the users that will
be using nautilus-cd-burner, totem, goobox, or sound-juicer. In addition
to those devices, /dev/xpt* must also be writable to your
nautilus-cd-burner, totem, goobox, and sound-juicer users. The following
/etc/devfs.conf configuration will achieve the desired results given the
perm cd0 0666
perm xpt0 0666
perm pass0 0666
If you encounter problems burning to discs with nautilus-cd-burner, set
the following GConf /apps/nautilus-cd-burner/debug to /true/ using
*Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor* (gconf-editor from
the command line). Then run nautilus-cd-burner from the command line,
reproduce the problem you are having, and capture the output on the
command line. Include this along with the rest of your bug report
Let me know what is going on.
