music CD's in linux?


when I try to mount a music CD of any type it errors and says

/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

does anyone know whats hapening?

You don't mount Music CD's. You simply start you music app and play it.

first create a directory to mount it too

mkdir /mnt/cd

then mount

mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cd

that doesnt work, I already can mount CD's but my problem lies in music CD's

the only good music player I have is XMMS, can that be made to play CD's and how, if not are there any other programs that can play CD's (preferably ones that an rip CD's also, and it would be nice if it was GPL'd)

Sorry I only know the KDE ones. KAudioCreater etc. Any Music player should be able to access the normal CD content of the disc without mounting but the etc. stuff it will need to be mounted. Have you tried any of the GStreamer stuff?

Perhaps the CD is not a standard file system? This is just a guess, but I'm thinking they might not be able to create these CDs with ISO9660

With a multisession CD this might work. Have never tried it myself

KSCD plays CD's just fine. pop a CD in, adjust the cd rom device to /dev/whatever and there ya go. I use kscd for cd playing and xmms for mp3/ogg stuff.
