            Bug ID: 316037
           Summary: KsCD seems incapable of giving a useful track listing
                    of a CD which is part of a set.
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: kscd
           Version: unspecified

                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR

I have just tried to play selected tracks from a CD which is CD25 from Volume 5
of the complete works of Johann Sebastion Bach. The complete set (No 93102)
consists of 155 CDs 2558 tracks in all. When I fired up KsCD it spent about 5
minutes before it settled down and displayed the track information of the very
first track of the set! I then clicked on the Playlist icon; this caused it to
go into a sulk for another couple of minutes before displaying all 2558 tracks
in apparently a random order -- not very useful! Eventually, I managed to play
the required tracks by sucessive clicking on the "fast forward" button.

May I make the following suggestion to make this "App" more useful:
1) When the "track list" button is clicked it should only display the tracks on
the CD in the machine;
2) It would help with the current track identification if the play progress bar
were to display the total play time of the track actually being played. I would
also help if it were to show the name of the actual being played in stead of
some random track from another CD in the set.

To its credit, KsCD did play from the CD (93102/131). Amorak just gave up.

All software v4.8.5-0ubuntu0.1
