aint lettin me play cds through XMMS, and no sound from default media player...
in xmms go to preferrencies (CTRL+P) configure "Audio CD Player" in the device tab if no device is present
press add drive fill the info, device : (the device file) /dev/cdrom or /dev/hdb or something,
directory: the mount point of the device (something like /media/cdrom) and play mode: digital extraction.
If the info is correct, the next time you insert a CD in your drive, if you brown from XMMS (+FILE button) to the mount point you should be able to see virtual track files (like the one you see in windows file manager). If you add those files in the playlist will be able to play the CD tracks.
The default CD player does not do a digital audio extract which means that you need to have the cable connecting the CDROM with the sound card attached in order to play CD's.
