I'm in the middle of ripping all my CDs to my computer. I rip and encode the CDs with GRip and scan the disks and album art at 300 dpi. Then I put the CDs away in boxes forever.
Overnight GRip has stopped seeing CDs in my drive. Yesterday everything worked fine. Today it says "No Disc". Nothing has changed on the computer.
I tried uninstalling GRip, turning off the computer, rebooting, installing GRip -- nothing. Turned off the computer again, turned it on and tried again -- nothing.
K3b sees the CDs fine, but K3b is slower than GRip and names the files differently, so that's not a solution. Anyway, it's important to keep ALL our options open. One of the great
things about Linux is that there are many different ways to do anything, not just one way.
Just as an experiment, I installed another ripper called Asunder. Asunder also doesn't see the CDs.
Any ideas? I'm still using 2009.2, and here's my fstab in case that helps (not that it's changed since yesterday):

Any help would be much appreciated! -- Leo
