i tried differnet cd's (all originals). i'm connected to the net. and actually, xmms and kscd play the tracks, just no sound comes from there. it's so that the timer starts counting as it is playing: 0:0; 0:1 etc and the cd is spinning around and the cdrom led is blinking nicely as it should. And it really doesn't show the track names, just the track number or 'unknown.'

Oh, the cables are connected, xmms plays mp3's from cd's.

well, for xmms i still have to show the location of the cdrom, that would be /mnt/cdrom/

kscd pops up automagically and starts playing the tracks. btw, it shows the correct number of tracks.

You mentined that freedb may be disabled or smth, how do i check that and make it work?

thank you

Check your preferences in XMMS (the short key is CTRL P) and click on options and read info is the first option, uncheck both boxes.

And no, the location isn't /mnt/cdrom that is the mount point, the location would be the device which is:
/dev/cdrom

The sound not coming through might be because you have something muted or sound is down, check your mixers: gmix kmix or aumix

Cool

I *think* I know what this is: it is something to do with your sound daemon, which is sitting on your sound device, so no other process can use it. Under Gnome, I am running Enlightened Sound Daemon - I put esd on standby when I want to listen to audio over my cd/rw by doing
'me@prompt:~$ esdctl off' and then 'me@prompt:~$ esdctl on' afterwards. This doesn't work under KDE because I'm using arSt (or whatever it's called). Geez I hope this helps, it was a few months ago that I was dealing with this problem.

To get your CDDB working in KsCD, go to the configuration and then freedb. Click "Update" under the freedb server window and a whole bunch of new lines should come up. Save you settings and restart KsCD. You should be accessing the database with no problem.

I've just installed SuSE 8.1, and I'm having similar problems to those described in this thread; here's the skinny:

cd player sees the CD, successfully does the whole cddb thing, and starts playing track one . . . but I get no sound whatsowever.

-Cables are connected (cdplayer works in Windows)
-All levels are up plenty high
-I get sound from all kinds of other files
-I've tried pointing the cd player to /dev/sr0 and /dev/scd0 just for kicks; same thing happens.
-I've tried depmod -ae
-I've tried esdctl off

It seems the relationship between the player and the drive is fine; but sound isn't making it from the drive to the card . . .

This is making me crazy.

SAME!!

I've been having the same problem. I just installed red hat 7.3 as a dual boot with windows.
Do you guys happen to have Dell machines with the cheaper audio card?

Yep, I've got a Dell Dimension 4500 with the SB Live! Value. Very interesting. Where does that get us . . .?

Smile SOLUTION!!

Well, it's stupid little things like these that annoy me, so instead of doing my homework for the past week I spent way to much time tryin to figure this out. At another forum I found people with the same problem and someone suggested buying an audio cable to connect the soundcard to the cdrom drive...and it worked for someone. I bought one last night for 2.99 at compUSa and it WORKED!!

So go buy a sound cable to connect your cdrom drive to your sound card and it'll work.
