Subject: [gentoo-user] Verification of audio CD copy?

1 Hi,
2 I've got a bit of a problem recently with (I think) k3b. Over the
3 last couple of months *some* copies of CDs made in k3b using the Clone
4 Copy feature do not reliably play in my car's CD player. I've tried
5 multiple CD spindles and I've tried burning the copies on two
6 different Gentoo machines - one 32-bit and the other 64-bit - with the
7 same results. The thing that is VERY strange about this problem is
8 that some CDs and all copies of those CDs play fine. For other CDs the
9 originals play fine but every copy I make fails, and if they fail,
10 they fail using either Gentoo machine to copy them. (Hope that's
11 clear....)
13 I'm wondering if there is a program that can verify the contents of
14 each CD against each other, bit for bit, to identify whether this is a
15 problem on all of my computers or whether it's something about my
16 car's CD. The strange thing is that the original CDs play fine in the
17 car. It's only the copies that sometimes don't, and it's only the
18 copies of *some* CDs, not all CDs.
20 I've been using these same machine and same car CD player for years
21 and everything has always been fine. Now for the last 2-3 months
22 nearly 50% of what I copy fails.
24 Anyway, thanks in advance.
26 Cheers,
27 Mark
