Description of problem:
Selecting "device/Set Read Speed..." menu brings up the CD speed dialog - set to 12.
My CD-ROM drive is rated for 24x operation, so I set it to 24.
I re-open the dialog and I see it has been reset to 12.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select the "device/Set Read Speed..." dialog to change the CD-ROM read speed.
2. Increase/decrease the read speed.
The read speed doesn't change.
The read speed should have changed.
I use a 1GHz PIII and the processor runs at 75% while ripping to Ogg/Vorbis.
You'd likely get better feedback posting this to either k3b mailing list
(http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/k3b-user) or filing a bug upstream
(bugs.kde.org against k3b).
[Mid air collision] I just tried another album - the processor is running at
30-40% while ripping to Ogg/Vorbis - what's up with that?
Re: vorbis cpu usage.
*shrug*, dunno, ask a libogg/libvorbis dev/maintainer, that's what k3b uses to
Be aware too, that the burning media you use (sometimes) has speed limits too.
I'm ripping to hard disk to avoid carrying CD's around - not burning media.
Ah, I think I finally understand, problem confirmed.
device/Set Read Speed..." always reverts to 12. definitely upstream bug
territory. I'll go see if it's been reported yet.
Couldn't find anything. Care to report to bugs.kde.org? (else, I'll do it...
Thanks, we'll continue to track this upstream.
