Description Philip Ashmore 2008-03-19 18:29:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080208 Fedora/ Firefox/

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select the "device/Set Read Speed..." dialog to change the CD-ROM read speed.
2. Increase/decrease the read speed.

Actual Results:
The read speed doesn't change.

Expected Results:
The read speed should have changed.

Additional info:
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).
Comment 2 Philip Ashmore 2008-03-19 18:51:29 EDT
[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?
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-03-19 21:31:48 EDT
Re: vorbis cpu usage.
*shrug*, dunno, ask a libogg/libvorbis dev/maintainer, that's what k3b uses to
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-03-20 09:59:23 EDT
Be aware too, that the burning media you use (sometimes) has speed limits too.
Comment 5 Philip Ashmore 2008-03-20 10:53:23 EDT
I'm ripping to hard disk to avoid carrying CD's around - not burning media.
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-03-20 11:07:49 EDT
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.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2008-03-20 11:10:37 EDT
Couldn't find anything.  Care to report to bugs.kde.org?  (else, I'll do it...
Comment 8 Philip Ashmore 2008-03-20 11:47:52 EDT
Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2008-03-20 11:59:19 EDT
Thanks, we'll continue to track this upstream.
