CD Reading Troubles


I have a CD full of mp3s. How do u get them from the cd onto the harddrive and play em? Or if possible, how do i play them directly from the CD? I'm on debian without root privilages.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Well, not knowing where your cd is mounted if at all and what program your using to attempt to play them... Here is how I would use Mplayer to play my MP3's off my CDROM:

$ mplayer /mnt/cdrom/*mp3

If you can play them from the CD it would be easier then trying to copy them all over to the HD.

Try "xine" instead of "mplayer" (without the quotes of course).

There should be a space between xine and /mnt/cdrom/*mp3.

Assiez,

What we gave you were EXAMPLES only... We don't know what the path to your cdrom is...

Type at your terminal prompt:

mount

This will give you the mount point location for your cdrom such as mine is:

EXAMPLE:
/dev/hdd on /mnt/cdrom

Your's may be quite different! Once you find the correct mount point for YOUR cdrom then you should have no problems playing your .mp3's in Mplayer, Xine, or Xmms
