AudiCD again and again


Ok, Im a newbie, and have read tons of stuff to get my audiocd's working.
Im running Debian as testing, with KDE. Im using ALSA.

I have no problem playing MP3's, but when I insert a music CD in, nothing happens. Its a laptop, so the audiocable should be in place.
I cant even use Konquerer. When I press the search audiocd its just says error reading audiocd:/.

What can I do to solve this.

I just last night tried the new Skype for linux, but no sound from that eighter, so perhaps its all related. I have no Idea how to test it.

My fstab is like this:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda5 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdc /cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sdb /usbdrive auto defaults,user,noauto 0 0

Please help me. Im pretty new to linux, but I like already very much, if only I could get this last error solved.

the lspci -v for my sound card, if of any help:

0000:00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 50)

from your fstab, it looks like you dont have any symbolic links to your cd drive.
no problem, but some people make a symbolic link to /dev/hdx called /dev/cdrom
just to make it easy to remember.

i would guess, that you are using kscd to play cd's and you have not changed its default cd drive from /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdc

or make the symbolic link yourself as root 'ln -s /dev/hdv /dev/cdrom'

Your right, I have tried kscd, and it is pointing to /dev/cdrom. But nothing happens when I change the location to /dev/hdc. Are you sure thats the correct path?

The symbolic link is supposed to be put where? in /dev?
I guess you mean 'ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom

In the / i have 2 folders called cdrom and cdrom0, and another in /media/cdrom. What is all this for.. I know I can see datacd's in /cdrom but dont know the rest.

I have just tried to play the cd's as root, and that goes very well, so i guess its some kind of permission I need.. If this is of any help.
