Unhappy cd sound


I have checked the cables from cd to soundcard, rights to devices, and anything else I could find to check to get a cd to play. It is not muted any place that I can find. My soundcard will play sounds for opening and closing programs and will play music from harddrive but not cd. I seen something about having to configure or turn on the inputs from cd to soundcard, but I cant find any more than that. This is the only thing that doen't work, and I don't really needed but it should work. I have RedHat 8.0 workstation install with hda is Windows, hdb is linux, hdc is cdrom/rw, hdd is cdrom, sound is SB ensoniq audioPCI. There has to be some little dumb something that I can't find.

I have searched and visit this site often in hopes of finding a fix. All the answers run toward pluging in the cable from cd to soundcard, which I have, to rights to devices, which I have changed, to making sure something is not muted, which nothing is. I have searched google, and visited other linux sites, no luck.

1) Check you are using a CD playing program, not attempting to use say XMMS

2) Check the mixer settings, either in KDE or using alsamixer

Have you tried it under any other OS - has it worked in the past?

Just trying to rule out a faulty cable or connection.
