Can you be more specific about your problem? What are you having a problem with? Run XMMS in the terminal to see what errors you're getting, post back, then maybe we can help you.

I used to play cd's in XMMS by opening /dev/cdrom. I guess I set some attributes for it before it started to work (on Debian Woody).

It might help if you specified your distribution and version (and xmms version, for that matter)...alas, here goes:

1) Are you sure your CDROM is working? Can you mount and read data CDs?
2) do you have all the necessary dependencies installed for XMMS?
3) If you use the 'play file' to browse /dev/cdrom, the audio files should be seen, named e.g. Trackname.cda. If you select all or some you should hear music...

...also to resego, the best application for ripping in my opinion is GRIP. And if you want just a command line ripper, as fast as it gets is jack (note that JACK with capitals is a different project).

Xmms won't play .wma files. You need the xmms-wma plug-in
