Unhappy cdrom media contents not showing


Hi all, I'm running Mandrake 10.1 on KDE, using the Kaffeine player - whilst this plays back music I can't actually see the audio files on the cd rom when I click on that icon - can anybody tell me how I can configure these to be visible please?

Thanks

You can't see those files because tracks on such a CD are not Linux file system data; they are accessed and sent to the audio output channel directly, using a CD player program.

Cheers, Leon.

Thanks for the confirmation, thought that was probably issue - can you advise on the best software to use so I can rip music please?

I've used cdparanoia, worked perfectly, also with older, damaged, cd's

http://linuxcommand.org/man_pages/cdparanoia1.html

Quote:
cdparanoia retrieves audio tracks from CDDA capable CDROM drives. The data can be saved to a file or directed to standard output in WAV, AIFF, AIFF-C or raw format. Most ATAPI, SCSI and several proprietary CDROM drive makes are supported; cdparanoia can determine if the target drive is CDDA capable.

In addition to simple reading, cdparanoia adds extra-robust data verification, synchronization, error handling and scratch reconstruction capability.
Or check for example here for more.
