Thanks for reply. I'm using RH8-dot-something (just updated).
There are really two issues sited.
1) when I insert an audio CD, a player like kscd comes up and indicates its playing (counter runs, sees number of tracks, I can skip to next track, etc.) Can't hear anything and the CD is not spinning.
2) when I double click an .mp3 file, xmms comes up. At Load File screen, I type in the .mp3 file name, click OK. Load File screen disappears, but still no sound. If I click play button, Load File screen appears again.
How do I mount? - seem automatic. when I insert a CD, an icon appears on the desktop that let's me view the CD content or read files. With a data CD - the top of the Konqueror screen says: file:/mnt/cdrom - Kongueror
If I right click on the icon with audio CD in place, I get the following error message:
Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
Still lost. Does any of the above help?
