Audio CDs stopped working on Fedora C1!?


I am rather new to linux in general, so please forgive me if I ask to say anything foolish.

I have tried googling and searching this forum, but to no avail.

The problem is this:

I have never been able to get my audio CDs to play on my Fedora Core 1 system. I have a cable plugged directly into the sound card, and the system seems to recognize the CD's contents. I was able to rip audio tracks oddly enough (but grip was also unable to play the audio CD directly).

A few days later, both grip and cd paranoia stopped working. They now won't admit that there is a CD in the drive. As far as I am aware, I did nothing to make this happen. I didn't edit fstab or anything. cd paranoia -vsQ now gives me

Code:
Checking /dev/cdrom for cdrom...
        Testing /dev/cdrom for cooked ioctl() interface
                CDROM sensed: ATAPI compatible ATAPI 40X CDROM

004: Unable to read table of contents header

Unable to open disc.  Is there an audio CD in the drive?
I have tried different CDs (which are the ones that I had previously been able to rip tracks from), so I assume that the CDs are all fine.

Yesterday, just for the hell of it, I made a CD/DVD-Rom device icon on my KDE desktop. (Right click -> create new CD/DVD-ROM device). At that time, it did nothing to fix my problem. And then things got weird!

This morning when I booted up my box and logged in as a user, KsCD suddenly opened, which was odd as I didn't have it open when I logged out last night. I had left an audio CD in the tray, and I noticed that KsCD was actually reading the CD's contents. When I clicked play, wonder of wonders, the CD actually started playing and music came from the speakers! There was much rejoicing.

Then I made the mistake of ejecting the CD and putting another one in. Everything promptly returned to "normal". The system no longer recognizes that there is an audio CD in the drive. I get the same errors in cd paranoia -vsQ as before, and neither grip nor KsCD recognizes anything. Well, at least I now know that the CD drive works with the sound card, so I don't think it is a hardware problem.

My fstab (when it worked for one glorious, mysterious, blessed moment) was

Code:
udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
I followed some suggestions on this board, and changed it to:

Code:
iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
but nothing happened.

I don't know if this means anything, but when I typed dmesg | grep hd, some error messages appeared, which might be more understandable to someone else...

Code:
  hda: WDC WD400BB-00DEA0, ATA DISK drive
hdc: ATAPI 40X CDROM, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hda: attached ide-disk driver.
hda: host protected area => 1

hdc: irq timeout: error=0x00
hdc: ATAPI reset complete
hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
hdc: irq timeout: error=0x00

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Tony
