    What happens if you unmount the cdrom before trying to play it?

    I don't know about Linux, and I can't use the current version on my Mac because bpa followed an incorrect idea of mine. But his earlier version, which did work on the Mac, needed the cd to be unmounted manually before it was recognised in Squeezebox.

    I forgot users may have "Auto mounting" of CDs. I set my systems up to prompt for action on insertion of a DVD/CD/CDROM but usually the choice didn't affect cdda2wav operation on Linux.

    I had to disable "autorun" on Windows for CDs that had extra "data" which seems to bypass the prompt mechanism.

    In my /dev, I have 3 symlinks cdrom1, cdrw1, dvd1, all pointing to "scd0". I've tried each of the links in CDdevice Name with no success.

    fstab shows the cdrom mounted on /dev/hdb but this shows as "no such file or directory" when trying to access.

    Any other suggestions?

    Try the different combination on a shell prompt - it is possible the cdda2wav has been altered in some way for Ubuntu.

    The command to show CD Table of contents is

    cdda2wav device=/dev/cdrom -verbose-level=toc -N -g -J

    If your system is SCSI based then try

    cdda2wav -scanbus

    Try

    cdda2wav device=0,0,0 -verbose-level=toc -N -g -J

    If that works put 0,0,0 in the settings which had "/dev/cdrom"

    Tried cdda2wav device=0,0,0 -verbose-level=toc -N -g -J and got 2 messages:

    Code:
    WARNING: the deprecated pseudo SCSI syntax found as device specification.
    Support for that may cease in the future versions of wodim. For now,
    the device will be mapped to a block device file where possible.
    Run "wodim --devices" for details.
    Segmentation fault
    Then:

    Code:
    Unable to open this SCSI ID. Trying to map to old ATA syntax.This workaround will disappear in the near future. Fix your configuration.
    ran wodim --devices and got:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    tried /dev/scd0 in CDplayer - got error as before:

    Error loading CD index - (-1) No CD in drive'

    tried 0,0,0 in CDplayer and got a different error:

    Error loading CD index - (-1) CD drive is in use. Wait and then try again'

    I feel we are making progress but - any other suggestions?

    Error loading CD index - (-1) No CD in drive'
    That looks good - I think the only condition this appear is when cdda2wav generates the "load cdrom please and press enter" message.
    Error loading CD index - (-1) CD drive is in use. Wait and then try again'
    Not as good as it might seem, That error is one generated by CDplayer supposedly when two user interfaces (e.g. Webui and remote) are trying to get the CD player to read TOC at the same time.

    Don't try using CDplayer until you can get a list of the tracks on a CD by using this command.

    cdda2wav device=DEVICENAME -verbose-level=toc -N -g -J

    If there is no CD in the drive you will get a message like
    Code:
    Type: ROM, Vendor 'SONY    ' Model 'DVD RW DW-Q120A ' Revision 'PYS2' MMC+CDDA
    load cdrom please and press enter
    If there is a CD in the drive you will get text like
    Code:

    Is there a way you can get icedax to rip an CD and while it is ripping, do a "ps" command to get the command line which is being used. It would show the device name being used.

    Modern CDROM drive are intelligent and their onboard controllers remember and buffer too much including errors. I usually remove CD and re-insert CD between test runs of cdda2wav as this resets the controller's internal state.

    Googling - There are lots of users with issues about Ubuntui abd Cdda2wav. It looks like Ubuntu builders have done something to the cdda2wav when they changed it into icedax.

    Thanks for the help and info, I'll do some more research. BTW I get a similar message to the reporter of the bug above when running icedax.
