DVD-ROM or RAM no longer recognizes an audio cd


I've had Fedora 11 running on my PC since shortly after release. I have a DVD-ROM as the Master on the single IDE port on my MoBo and a DVD-RAM as the slave on that port. I also have 4 ea SATA 500GB HDDs using JBOD configuration on the MoBo. When I first installed F 11 I noticed that if I dupped a CD the blank icon would stay on my desktop, even though I had removed it. Also it did not "see" that I had put a new blank in the burner. I would have to reboot to correct. However the system would recognize an audio cd, play it rip or whatever. Now the first problem I think has gone away but neither drive when I put an audio cd into them will recognize it. The light on the drive will come on and then start flashing as normal, but nothing happens. When I check to see if I can manually mount it, the system comes back with No Media in drive. Anyone have any ideas? This seems to have happened I'd say about 1.5 weeks ago was the last time I know it worked. I suspect an update possibly "broke" something. Also can anyone point me to a reliable knowledge base as to what actually transpires between the time I put a CD in the drive and the icon pops up and it starts playing or whatever.

TIA

Have you tried playing it or ripping it despite the fact that there is no indication of anything in the drive?
Audio-CDs cannot be mounted - there is no filesystem on them which could be mounted - just audio-data.
Still they can be played/ripped ...

It used to place an icon on the desktop labelling it as an audio cd, it no longer does that. Also Rhythmbox no longer "sees" it either. However at your suggestion I started grip which I hadn't done before and it "sees" the audio cd. As I'm typing this reply it is ripping. Since I don't normally listen directly from the CD, but rather from the ripped and encoded files on my hard drive, it does not seem to be a problem for me. I do however dupe my CDs for playing in the car, I keep the originals in storage. I don't think that I can do that any more, so there is still a problem in that respect. I will try it again later after ripping it.

Update to audio cd problem

It appears that it is strictly an OS recognition problem in that it no longer places an icon on the desktop when an audio cd is put into one of the drives. It also seems that Rhythmbox also has a problem in that it too does not "see" a player with an audio cd in it. However, I am able to play the cd in Grip as well as rip it. Once it is ripped and encoded (I use flac encoding), Rhythmbox is able to import the files into my library. I am right now copying the same cd using Brasero. As I mentioned before I only rip & dupe my originals, never normally play them, it is not a real problem for me. I don't know if there are other players that also may not "see" the audio cd unless the OS does though.

I just read through this (as well as a lot more...) and this has put me into the right direction.
http://www.pubbs.net/gentoo/200904/40082/

I too noticed, that Rhythmbox would not even show me audio-CDs - as well as the filemanager and other programs.
But I did not really care.
I could still use the drive to play and rip - but probably these programs I used do not rely on this particular gstreamer-plugin.
I just now installed "gst-plugins-bad" as it is called in Gentoo, which I use, and now the filemanager (Thunar - Xfce4) as well as rhythmbox ... can see and use the drive with audio-CDs.
Hope this gives you the hint you need - you might be missing some gstreamer-plugin.
But I would not know the exact name of it in Fedora - it should be something similar to "gst-plugins-bad" or "gst-plugins-cdio".
