When I put a music CD in my CD-RW, I cannot listen to music even if I open the CD player and try to run it from there. However I can listen to music on my regular CDROM. I do not mount it because it is not a data CD and is supposed to run automatically. Also the CD-RW opens data CDs! What should I do to make it read the music CDs?
Distribution: Red Hat 8.0, Slackware 8.1, Knoppix 3.7, Lunar 1.3, Sorcerer
Dzemo, Welcome to LQ!!
It is a good practice fill out your profile information with the distro you're using etc. And it never hurts to be as detailed as possible when you're describing a problem. Like what cd player app you're using, what version etc in your post above. Nothing can possibly be more important than a specific error message if any.
What do you use to automount those cds from your regular CDROM?
I have dual boot machine. I was fooled by Windows ME playing a CD on my machine on my CD-RW but Mandrake 8.2 would not. It turns out that Windows allows a connection thru the motherboard to the soundcard without a wire between the CD-RWand the sound card (as I understand it). Mandrake 9.0 may have that capability but you have still not told us your distro. You may need to open the machine and check for that physical connection between the CR-RW and the sound card.
