Question Cannot get Audio from CD Player


Here I go again. Back into the forrest looking for a tree.

I do not get any audio when I try and play a CD. I am using KsCD to play it. I have a ALS 4000 sound card. The cables are connected (everything works in that other operating system). I can get sound from my tape deck using the line input to the card. I have checked the levels in KMix and set them to the max. What have I missed?

Most CD player applications have a DAE setting (Digital Audio Extraction). If it's set off, turn it on. If it's already on, your drive may not support DAE so try turning it off.

I believe that what macemoneta is referring to is also called CDDA. At least that's what it's called on my systems.

I was unable to tell KsCD to use the CDDA source. I finally ended up using Alsaplayer because it can select the CDDA source.

CDDA is when you don't use an audio cable from the CD player to the sound card. Instead you use the IDE data path through the IDE controller.

CDDA is actually the wrong term for the function. CDDA refers to audio CDs. A drive that supports CDDA is one that can play an audio CD.

DAE is the correct term for extracting digital audio over the bus (as opposed to analog audio over the line-out).

You can have a CDDA drive that does not support DAE, but you cannot have a drive that supports DAE but does not support CDDA.

Talking Thanks Guys

I now have found the tree in the forrest.

I went into KsCD Selected Extras,Then Configure KsCD and there was a check box there for Use Direct Digital Playback. When I made that selection you can now hear the CD's when they play.

I knew it had to be something simple, but the problem was just where to look to find the solution. The version of KsCD I have is 1.6. I don't know if earlier versions had this option or not. stress_junkie you might try this version and see if it will work for you.

I am so glad the only dumb question, is a question that is not asked.

Thanks again for your help.

Steve
