Question Can't read any audio CD


I can't play or even read music CD's any more though I could do that perfectly just a few weeks ago. It is even impossible for any file manager program to detect anything at all on an audio CD.

My guess is that either my install/uninstall of different sound programs or update of some "Mandrake" programs have been causing this. I guess that my configuration have been changed but I don't know where to start looking.

Any good ideas where to start anyone?

Your CD is mounted?

as ROOT:

mount /dev/hdx /mnt/cdrom

x= letter of your cdrom device.

Was that when you had an audio cd in? Have you tried accessing it with a different desktop/Windows manager.

Audio cds do not have a filesystem, so that cannot be mounted/unmounted by any command.
Only some audio players like xmms, alsaplayer xine have a tricky method enabling a view of what is inside of an audio cd.
Hope this helps

Or is the "player" app looking at the correct device ?

My device is a cdrw, so I have to tell it to look at /dev/scd0. The default /dev/cdrom doesn't do a thing.

Though it does sound like the permissions need's checking. Like synaptical said,

Quote:
# chown root:users /dev/hdc
Just try to establish what the system is actually calling the device, then see if you've got permissions to use it.

My

regards

John

Yes, BigJohn, you're right, but music cd's cannot be mounted/unmounted even if you are telling the system the correct device name.
I just noticed the guys (some of them) they were trying to do something impossible.
