the soundKonverter reports "No CD device found" even when there are 2
Drives in the System. One is the built in DVD-RW (/dev/sr0) the other an
CD, connected via an IDE-to-USB Adapter, that I use for CD-ripping only.
"cdparanoia -d /dev/sr2" can read from the CD-Drive.
Opening the soundKonverter from the Start Menu and trying to add Tracks
via "Add CD tracks" fails with the Error "No CD device found". But there
are 2 Drives installed and the CD is in the /dev/sr2 Drive.
KDE will find the CD when it is inserted and give the Option "Rip Audio
CD with soudKonverter". This Option will open the "Add CD tracks" Dialog
with all the Tracks showing and even cddb works here. As soon as one
proceeds, the Tracks are listed waiting in the appearing Main Window.
But starting the actual Rip will one again give You the "No CD device
found" Error. The CD is once again in the /dev/sr2 Drive.
I tried several easy Fixes (ln -s sr2 cdrom in /dev) but with no Luck.
There might well be a Way to cope with that but Google didn't find any.
cdparanoia has a -d Switch to select the correct Drive but there is no
Way in soundKonverter to access this Option.
Btw.: There is a Help Topic "soundKonverter" in the Help Center, but no
actual Documetation in Application Manuals / Multimedia / soundKonverter.
If it's a good idea go ahead and do it.
It's much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.
