Recording CDs and playing Audio CDs

Post by touchdown »

Hello there.
I'm new here and i have some question about Basilisk II JIT.
It runs very well on my WinXP system. I have installed OS8.1.
If I select my CD recorder as SCSI in the gui, i can burn CDs using Toast 4.1.2, but than I cannot play Audio CDs. If I enable the CD-ROM function in the gui I am able to play Audio CDs, but I'm not any longer able to use Toast. And if I select both i get message when I enter a CD, that the CD is not readable and shows me the Initialization Diaolog and wants me to initialze the disk (shows the correct size of the disc), which of course doesn't work with an audio cd, and then ejects the cd.
Is there a way to get both working, or have I to shutdown and change the settings each time I want to use the other thing?


p.s.: Here's my pref-file:

Sounds unusual. How many CD drives do you have? If you have two or more, then try enabling them both in the SCSI prefs. Please try it and let me know what happens.

BTW, welcome to emaculation :)

OK, I have enabled both cd drives in scsi (i haven't used the second before in Basilisk) and I still get no sound from Audio CDs. I have tried playing a MP3 CD with mpeg-dec3.11 and that worked with both drives. I have an idea of what might be the problem. My drives are not connected with the sound card with a cable. Can it be that the CD function of Basilisk uses the WinXP capability auf playing AudioCDs per Datastream but the SCSI emulation does not? Unfortunately I have no cable here to test.

I forgot to say is that the CD player software is running normal. It plays the cd, but there is no sound.
