Description Mathias.Augstein 2020-07-06 14:01:55 EDT

using Xubuntu 20.04 with XFCE 4.14 and Asunder 2.9.5 from the repository.

when I try ripping more than 10 CDs in one session (without turning off the PC), the process stops at the 10th CD. It rips until a certain point, and afterwards there is no more progress. Starting Asunder new using the command line results in the error:
   Error: Couldn't open /dev/cdrom
/dev/cdrom does not exist, Thunar 1.8.9 loads the CD under cdda://sr1 .

One more interesting thing: When the error on Asunder happens, Parole also crashes when trying to read from the CD with:
   Could not handle CDDA URI
VLC player works fine.

I do not know if this place is right for this bug report, the problem with parole might suggest that some shared backend library has a problem. Furthermore I found this bug report:
stating that
   parole --device=% cdda://
should solve the problem. However, in my case it does not work.

Are there any suggestions?

Hi Mathias

Asunder doesn't use gstreamer at all. It pretty much reads the disk directly, via cdparanoia.

The only causes I can think of are a bad disk or a flaky drive. Or both. I don't think there's anything you can do in software to fix it.

Hi Andrew,

thanks for pointing this out. Makes it look as if I have a problem with the disk drive, the disk itself cannot be the problem.
