You could try clicking on the Open File Button, finding your CD-R in the Directories box and if you see the tracks in the Files box click "Add all files in directory".

If it can play CD, then I think you've it installed with cd plugin enabled. Choose play directory & then it will add all the tracks inside the playlist. Or may be you did not configure the plug in correctly.

I have since found that my old CDrom drive is not working properly

If I use DVD drive everything is fine

(It does help if you add tracks to playlist )

Thank you for all your help

Heh heh. I just found out that you can drag songs from a konqueror window to the playlist in XMMS and have them add to the list

You can drag drop the mp3s also in nautilus. Very convenient.
