The saga continues . . . .
On a suggestion from Liam, I tried simply ripping with cdparanoia e.g.
cdparanoia -B - this happily rips all the tracks off a CD into a bunch of
WAV files. Yet with certain CDs when I use grip some tracks just don't get
ripped, although cdparanoia from the command line does the job nicely.
So I decided I'd try with my SCSI burner, rather than my IDE DVD. But that
give me more problems. When I do
cdparanoia -vsQ -d /dev/scd0
cdparanoia III release 9.7 (December 13, 1999)
(C) 1999 Monty <monty at xiph.org> and Xiphophorus

Checking /dev/scd0 for cdrom...
Testing /dev/scd0 for cooked ioctl() interface
/dev/scd0 is not a cooked ioctl CDROM.
Testing /dev/scd0 for SCSI interface
No generic SCSI device found to match CDROM device /dev/scd0
This seems to be a permissions issue, because if I do that as root it works
root at bagend:/dev >ls -l hdd scd0 sr0 sg0 cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Dec 28 23:41 cdrom -> hdd
brw-rw-r-- 1 root disk 22, 64 Mar 24 2000 hdd
brw-rw-r-- 1 root disk 11, 0 Mar 24 2000 scd0
crw-rw-r-- 1 root disk 21, 0 Mar 24 2000 sg0
brw-rw-r-- 1 root disk 11, 0 Mar 24 2000 sr0
so what gives here ? Why is cdparanoia unreliable under grip, or why can't I
use my SCSI CD - answers to either question welcomed :-)
