CD ROM No Sound


hello I am wondering if you can shed some light on me and tell me why I get no sound from my cd players. I have KSCD and XMMS. They don't play. I can mp3 play back etc but not cd audio if you can let me know what i have missed that would be great.

Two options:

1) Connect the lead between the CD-ROM and the sound-card and turn up the volume on the appropriate channel

2) Use Xine for CDs

Xine actually deals with the raw data and outputs the PCM audio, most CD players just tell the CD-ROM to play and expect it to be hooked up to the sound-card.

I have had nothing but problems installing Xine. I have onboard sound (Via Chipset). is there a setting that I would have to adjust to the software to make it work? it finds the cds obviously just no feedback.

If the cable's connected to the sound-card, then you should be able to turn up one of the mixer channels to hear CDs. Try kmix or whatever, and unmute everything and turn all the sliders up. One of them should be the CD-in channel.

I used to use VIA onboard sound, and it worked OK for me.

if a cable is not connecting the cdrom-drive and soundcard, then u will have to use digital audio extraction.
Its like the way windows media player plays audio cds. The digital extaction feature for playing audiocds is available in the latest xmms (1.2.10 and 1.2.9 also) as cdaudio plugin. u can try installing a new xmms version and try configuring the cd-audio plugin.
