1) pure audio CD, paranoia on = OK

3,4) mixed audio/data CD, paranoia on/off = bad - it tries to read the data track first and fails, and I think it used to work under RH9.
The only other thing is that the audio reading is very slow, reading at 1x. I don't remember it being super fast before, I thought it was faster, but it could just be the same speed.
Under RH9, I didn't use paranoia mode, but at least now I can read audio CD's again.
so, it looks like you're just trying to rip an audio cd? why not use grip? or sound juicer? i have my own shell script that does quite a bit of fun stuff at http://www.linuxadvocate.net/cd2ogg which does as it's name says. (version i'm working on now uses zenity under gnome, if you want it)
I didn't pay any attention to this thread until I tried to rip a CD this morning with grip and it more or less became stuck (very very very slow - grip displayed X0.0 for speed.) on the last three tracks. It turned out that there was a small scratch on the CD. It plays okay in a CD player.
The gnome-CD wouldn't play the last three tracks.
All other tracks worked okay.
Could it be a possible problem with the CD that is having problems in the computer?
For me, no, the CD's are fine, no scratches...
I just tried 'grip' and could not get it to see a CD in the drive - it would not even eject the draw ?
What my posting is trying to say is - is there a problem in 'readcd' ?
I believe this is what x-cd-roast is using to RIP the CD when not in paranoia mode.
When it uses 'cdparanoia', all is well (but slower than I would expect).
