Music CDs


How come I cant listen to music CDs, and CD player I open up on my Desktop freezes immediatly. I have a CD burner,and I think that might have something to do with it but im not sure.

which program is it and have you tried any others ? can you kill it normally or does it affect your whole desktop ? can you do a ctrl-alt-backspace to kill to get out ?

Why don't you rip those CD's and make them into "ogg" or "mp3" format?

It only affects the program im trying to run(thats linux right?) and sometimes a kill will work but next time I log in(KDE) it might be back, but not always. I have tried the gnome cd player, the kde cd player, and grip I think,

and I dont have space for all my CDs, I just saw that ogg format today online, is it worth switching too yet?

I haven't really tried it but I've heard good things about it. If you want to be compatible with mp3 player hardware, then you may choose mp3. Lame is a very good mp3 encoder http://lame.sourceforge.net/

If I remember right, doesnt Linux lock out the CD-burner device for only root access unless you obviously change the permissions?

I think it some kind of security protocol built-in.
