What does xmms say under
preferences -> Audio I/O plugins -> CD-Audio player

Does it point at BOTH the right raw-device and mount-point?

And /dev/cdrom is what? A symlink to ... ? *Is* ... the actual
cd-rom device you're looking at? Does the device in xmms match
what /etc/fstab is pointing at for the mount-point?

you've just gone to a level i'm not on. but not too far over my head. it's just over the horizen.

symlink? fstab? looking at the file sais this

/dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom2 supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0

i can access those mounts and what they contain if it's data (if that's the right word), like my install cd's. but not music. i'm not understanding your logic. accessing the cdroms isnt the problem. again, audio cd's won't show up. the mounted drive will and anything in the drive except music. i apologize if i'm clueless, which i pretty much am with regards to linux, but not entirely.

Do an
ls -l /dev/cdrom
and check whether that's what your actual CD-ROM is in /etc/fstab.

Personally not a big fan of supermount (had horrible experiences in
the past) and mandrake (ditto), but I assume that /dev/hdc is maybe
a cdrom and /dev/scd0 maybe your burner?

well if supermounts are supposed to autoplay whatever you stick in them, and i have a suspision that they are, then mine isn't working very well.

but your observation of my mounts looks correct to me

rom
none /mnt/cdrom supermount
dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0

burner
none /mnt/cdrom2 supermount
dev=/dev/scd0,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0

Chances are that cdrom0 itself is another symlink. In the
end all of those things need to be connected to an IDE or
SCSI device. You could try putting /dev/hdc into xmms'
device field, though, and see whether that works.

The next step (if those devices with cdrom in the name
are just symlinks) will be to check what the perms on the
raw-device are.



Cheers,
Tink

/dev/hdc will be the device you want for your cd drive.

well i got xine to play my audio cd's. i was missing some pluggins (specifically for xine) that i was able to locate. still can't get xmms to do anything though. and just getting things to work by accident is not enough for me. i want to know how those pluggins work, but at least i have music now while i try to learn i guess.

thanks for trying to help me on this one. still some unanswered questions. but i learned some basic linux things. and now i guess i'll move on to getting xmms to work. just the fact that it doesn't work weather i'd ever use it or not even if it did work will bother me and keep me from sleeping soundly durring the day. i hate it when shit's half assed. can i talk like that in here? it is 2006. i don't know. tweek on......

That most likely means that no one has entered details for
that specific CD for submission.

As I said ... if the mount-point is right, make sure that the CD-ROM
device in xmms' settings points at the same spot as fstab.
