Sounds like kaffeine has found the correct path to your cd player, but kscd is still set to the install default.

If you look through the kscd menus you'll find that it's probably set to /dev/cdrom. As I have a cdrw and a dvdrom, but only the cdrw has the audio plug connection to the sound card I have to make sure that it's looking at that device. My config has both devices, but they are called /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 and /dev/cdroms/cdrom1 - the cdrw with the audio plug is cdrom1 so that is what it has to look at.

You might find that if you look at kaffeines menu(s) and then check the "configure kaffeine" option, see what it's looking at device wise, and just note that down, then exit it, open kscd>extras>configure kscd and make it so that the device is the same. Then apply/ok etc etc and see if it will give you the audio from a disc!

That's all I can think of off the top of my head!

This may be something you've already tried, but did you check all of your volume settings?

Just a thought, because /dev/hdc seems like it thinks it's another hard drive (something to do with being plugged in as a slave off the back of /dev/hda (which would be a primary hard drive) ).

Erm I don't quite know how you'd check but if the device is a cdrw (as opposed to a cdrom) it might need to be looking at something with "scsi emulation". Previous versions of mandrake needed that for cdrw's and I'd previously had my kscd pointing at /dev/scd0 (plus the revised version of mandy then had to look at /dev/scd1 - dunno why). It could be that, though from memory, it could also just depend on which version/type of scsi emulation it could possibly be using, i.e. one is called scd, then there's another called sg?

Oh yes, you might be able to see that from using a /root terminal session (su, then root passwd etc) and doing the command "lsmod" to see if you're using a scsi module of some sort ?????

Sorry if that's all a bit irrelevant, it's all I can think of off the top of my head (currently befuddled by a couple of bottles of vino - my bro and family have just visited for first time in about 18 months - hic !).

Oh and I'd have to guess that it wouldn't be a system wide volume thing, because you've got sound from kaffeine, but what about the volume control for kscd itself??

regards

John
