    I tried writing CD-Text audio CD. However, it doesn't seem to get written.

    I used this TOC:

    CD_DA

    CD_TEXT {
      LANGUAGE 0 {
        TITLE "trance club 2001 cd1"
        PERFORMER "Various artists"
      }
    }

    // Track 1
    TRACK AUDIO
    NO COPY
    NO PRE_EMPHASIS
    TWO_CHANNEL_AUDIO
    CD_TEXT {
      LANGUAGE 0 {
        TITLE "go!"
        PERFORMER "Russenmafia"
      }
    }
    FILE "/mnt/scratch/test/track01.cdda.wav" 0 03:55:05

    That's actually generated by gcdmaster. I burned this with the command cdrdao write --device 0,2,0 --speed 2 --driver generic-mmc:0x00000010 *c and then tried cdda2wav to read it back, but it said no CD-Text detected. cdda2wav does detect CD-Text on other discs, so I assume it works correctly. I tried adding a language map like this:

    LANGUAGE_MAP {
        0: EN
        }

    like it's suggested in the example tocs, but that made no difference. cdrdao even says while writing that it's writing CD-TEXT lead-in, but I still can't read it back.

    The drive is a Ricoh MP7060S. Writing CD-Text works fine in wintendo.

     
    • This is one of my most annoying problems. The CD-TEXT data written by cdrdao can sometimes hardly be read back. I've verified the raw CD-TEXT data that is written against other CD mastering programs and it is the same. It looks to me like a recording quality issue but I've no idea how the
      recording quality can be influenced by the
      mastering software.

      Usually, the CD-TEXT can be read by the CD-recorder but not by usual CD-TEXT capable CD-ROM drives. Did you try to read the CD-TEXT data  with 'cdrdao read-toc --fast-toc ...' using your recorder?

      Did you use different CD-R brands for your tests with Windows mastering tools?

       
      • I have simular problems with my Plextor 121032 scsi.
        It works fine in windows.

        I tried both with a Kodak cdrmedia and a cdrw-media.
        I did the "cdrdao read-toc --fast-toc ..." and it didnt find any cd-text on the written media.

        Looks like the burner isnt supported with cd-text?

        (Thanks for a GREAT program, I even got friends install linux so they can use cdrdao as copier for the stability :-))

         
        • Please try to run again with the current development snapshot from ftp://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/pub/cdrdao/cdrdao-1.1.5-pre1.src.tar.gz. It fixes a serious CD-TEXT bug which probably also caused your problems.

           
          • Hi!

            I gave it another try, but with no luck. :-(
            Ver: 1.1.5-pre1
            Media: Kodak gold

            Burned it and gave it the "read-toc --fast-toc" treatment, but he couldnt find any cd-text.

            The toc-file with cd-text was made with the "read-cddb" option.

            The toc-file is looking like this:
            ----

            Maybe I'm missing something?
            Any ideas?

            • Did you use the option
              '--driver generic-mmc:0x10'? It is required to
              enable the CD-TEXT writing feature. You should
              get a message like 'Writing CD-TEXT lead-in'
              while recording.

                Hello,

                I have the same problem, but adding 0x10 to the driver options doesn't work.

                I use a SONY CD-RW CRX140E ATAPI drive with firmware revision 1.0c.
                The toc file was created with the read-cd function of cdrdao (including CD-TEXT data).

                Output from cdrdao:
                cdrdao simulate --device 0,1,0 --speed 8 --driver generic-mmc:0x00000010 -v 2 cd.toc

                [snip]
                Using libscg version 'schily-0.4'

                0,1,0: SONY CD-RW  CRX140E      Rev: 1.0c
                Using driver: Generic SCSI-3/MMC - Version 1.2 (options 0x0010)

                Starting write simulation at speed 8...
                Pausing 10 seconds - hit CTRL-C to abort.
                Process can be aborted with QUIT signal (usually CTRL-\).
                ?: Input/output error.  : scsi sendcmd: retryable error
                CDB:  5D 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 90 00
                status: 0x0 (GOOD STATUS)
                cmd finished after 0.259s timeout 180s
                ERROR: Cannot send cue sheet.
                ERROR: Simulation failed.

                The writing without the 0x10 option works fine (but without CD-TEXT).

                When I use the generic-mmc-raw driver, I get two additional lines in the output:
                Using 96 byte raw P-W sub-channel data mode for CD-TEXT.
                Writing lead-in and gap...

                I get these additional lines with or without 0x10 set, but writing the CD fails.

                I've tried cdrdao 1.1.4, 1.1.5-pre1 and pre3.
                My OS is Linux with Kernel 2.4.2.

                Thanks a lot,
                Steff

                 
                • Does the toc-file contain a pre-gap > 1 second for
                  the 1st track? If yes, please remove it and try
                  again.

                    No, it doesn't contain a pre-gap.

                    Is it possible that I've configured the scsi-emulation wrong?
                    What else can go wrong during compiling, installing and configuring cdrdao?
                    Perhaps I did something wrong?

                    Are there any more things I can try?

                    Thanks a lot,
                    Steff

                      It works now!

                      The notes to bug 419688 helped a lot. After recompiling with the new GenericMMC.cc, writing Audio-CDs with CD-TEXT works great :-)

      It would be nice (and comforting) if cdrdao showed some indication of CD-TEXT during the "show toc" command.

      /tmp/cdrdao-1.1.5-pre4/dao/cdrdao show-toc cdrdao.toc

       
      • Yes, that's right. It's now on my TODO list
        for 1.1.6.

         
    • If I use "generic-mmc:0x10" I get these messages (drive is a HP8100):

      ?: I/O error.  : scsi sendcmd: retryable error

      What could be wrong?

      Hi
      I have the same problem here, I wasted a few cds, then I thought lets have a look at the toc file that gcdmaster writes in /tmp.

      It never existed.  The bug is that gcdmaster does not write a toc file in that location.

      Or did I do something wrong?

       
    • I see this thread ran from November 2000 to August 2002,
      but here I am in February 2005, and my cdrdao 1.1.9
      neither reads nor writes CD-TEXT.  I have pre-recorded
      CD's that show CD-TEXT data on grip, so what am I missing
      on gcdmaster and cdrdao?

      My drive is a DVD+-RW that seems to be a MicroAdvantage
      model 8DVDRW-B13.  The pamphlet says it supports
      CD-TEXT fully.

      I'm running gentoo.  My kernel is 2.6.11-rc2-mm2.  I had
      3 or 4 kernels in the 2.6.7 through 2.6.10 range that
      hung my X11 environment (first XFree86, lately xorg)
      or maybe it was the entire kernel, I forget, so I kept
      returning to 2.6.5 when I needed to write a CD or DVD.

      But I'd like to put a title and performer on my audio
      CD tracks, and that's not working, so far.

      Please e-mail me at dlc@lampinc.com with any advice
      you might have.  I know about the 0x10 option, and
      that's not sufficient.
