    Can't copy cd with K3B


    Hi all.

    I've been trying to copy cds with k3b yet unsuccessfully. I can't get the option on the fly cause i have only one option, the writer burner driver. i figured i could just go ahead and burn not on the fly, like placing the cds on the same drive. But i get the following error message: "No cdrdao driver found". This is really odd cause actually i can burn rewritables and stuff. Any 's?

    Maybe you could try and specify the path to the cd drive your trying to copy from, it would be something like /mnt/cd1 or something;

    I just googled the problem and now i can actually copy cds. The problem is that i got another drive doing nothing cause i can't burn on the fly. The previous mistake was actually that i had the wrong driver selected on the k3b settings. Now i just need to add the other optical drive so that i could copy on the fly.

    Thanks dylunio, but how do i put the path if the options placed are inside a dropdown list box?

    I was thinking more in the line of creating a 'new data cd' and specifying it to burn what was in /dev/dvd or whatever your acces point is for your drives;
