can you hear other types of sounds like off the actual hard drive... saved files, wav files... etc?
Is your cable from cdrom to sound card connected properly? What about dual boot, does it work in other OS's on same computer?

Nope Not On Mute

well its not on mute-what else could it be?
I have the cd-rom hooked up to the soundcard correctly (cd-in)
works fine on win, and I have been able to play and hear off the harddrive just fine

>even more bizarre, i hit the play button on the cd-rom and it works
still kind of annoying

i assume that you are able to mount and unmount the cd (you don;t need to do this to play a cd but if you can;t mount etc. then it might be a problem in fstab or something)
