Hi first of all thank you for sharing this plugin for free with the Volumio community. I tried it out and it works great the CDs play with no skipping and sounds great.

Since this is the first release I hope you are open to some feedback.
One question/comment is that with this plugin my CD drive spins at full speed which is quite fast and I can hear the drive over the music quite easily. I'm curious if this is my drive specifically or if others have experienced it. I know that geeks-r-us had implemented a speed setting in his CD player plugin so it may be possiblehere too.

Dear Nanomesher,
I have problems with your CD plugin, version Feb 27th:
My setup: RPI 3B (no +), Hifiberry DAC plus standard, Volumio 2.555
Settings „IS2 DAC“ and „Hifiberry DAC plus“ are activated.
When I'm playing music from Internet radio or files from USB-stick the music comes through RCA to the amp and the sound is good. The Audio jack output is off.
When I'm playing music from CD the RCA output is off but the Audio jack output is working.
I have tested 3 different DVD-drives, all with separate USB power supply. All have the same phenomenon.
Any idea? With kind regards Tilmann

HI, can you try the "Auto reconfig audio" function under NanoSound CD settings and then reboot. It should choose the right audio output.

If still not working, can you send us the output of these:

cat /etc/asound.conf
cat /proc/asound/modules
cat /proc/asound/cards
aplay -l

thanks

Hi , glad you like NanoSound CD! We don't notice the spinning issue in the driver that we use so far.

As a test, can you please try to run these commands to slow down before playing with NanoSound CD?

sudo apt-get install eject

eject -x 2 /dev/cdrom

let us know how it goes, thanks.

Dear Nanomesher,
thank you for your detailed reply. Most likely is was my fault. I changed the format extraction into “wav” and surprise - now it works properly. I have no idea why wrong format had that impact, but thank you for this excellent plugin. My next step is the test run of your full version.
With regards Tilmann

Hi,

This is strange indeed. We suspect previous settings wasn't saved properly for some reason.

Glad it works now! thank you for the support.

NanoSound CD plugin

Postby hyaku » Fri Apr 12 2019 17:35

Hi,

I tried the plugin by using an Apple USB SuperDrive which didn’t work at all until I searched the internet to find out that it’s only working in Apple’s devices (so it's not nothing to do with the plugin). Thankfully I found a site which helped me to get the Apple CD drive working. The plugin seems to work BUT it’s missing an important feature (or I didn't find it). Is there any other way to get the CD ejected than running the eject command from the console? That's not very convenient as Apple USB SuperDrive doesn’t have any buttons at all, so there is no easy and simple way to eject the CD :) I’d be happily paying for the full version of the plugin but this is a feature I’d like to have. Is the eject function included in the Full version of the plugin? What would be also nice is to have the Apple USB SuperDrive "included" in the plugin, so whenever there's a need to reinstall the system, just installing the plugin you'd get the Apple CD drive working without any hassle.

Hi Hyako, Hi Nanomesher team,

I don't know what is required to be installed to use that special Apple drive. Maybe you can tell us a bit more what you had to do to get it running.

Anyway - i also would like to have an eject button as it shouldn't be too much effort to implement it.
Also a cancel button for the extraction process would be very helpful...

Best Regards
Josef

Hi NanoSound devs,

I just installed your free plugin and it does work wonderfully. Thanks for your work!
I am using an LG usb drive called Slim Portable DVD Writer (Model GP65NB60).

For reducing install time, you may consider using the apt-get parameter --no-install-recommends as I feel some packages are not needed (i recall reading SANE libraries for example).

Thank you!
