What is it with CD/DVD Drives with Vortexbox? I used to use on old PC for vortexbox and had problems with cd drives, I got 1 out of 4 to work. (all actually worked fine but only one of them with vortexbox) Not knowing much about Linux I reinstalled Voretexbox from scratch each time to ensure any configuration changes were made by the software not me - and vortex box was installed from each of these drives OK. When it worked, of course it was great, magic, brill etc etc!!!
Recently I bought a MINI-ITX box as I wanted something silent and my wife wanted something pretty under the TV. I could have bought a VBA - but the shipping and import taxes do not make it good for the UK compared to building your own.
I installed Vortexbox from an ISO made cd via the new box's CD/DVD writer, and it installed first time no problems at all. Vortexbox came up nicely. But it will NOT rip a music CD. Just get the stuff some of us havel seen before about buffer overruns etc. on the console
I am perplexed. If I can install Vortexbox from a CD without a problem, why won't it rip music from the same cd drive? I have ripped over 300 CD's without any real problem on the old PC oce I found a drive that worked. I have tried ripping CD's I have already ripped on a clean install of Vortexbox on this new Mini-ITX but it sits there smiling at me.
Anyone shed any light on this please?
