mpg321 gives no such device error


I am trying to get mpg321 working but I always recieve a No such device error. Sound works in all other instances that I have tried, including with other mp3 players such as XMMS, Juk, and madplay. Both OSS and Alsa are working, as far as I can tell. Here is an example of my output

bash-2.05b$ mpg321 -o alsa amazing\ grace\ bag\ pipes.mp3
High Performance MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 Audio Player for Layer 1, 2, and 3.
Version 0.59q (2002/03/23). Written and copyrights by Joe Drew.
Uses code from various people. See 'README' for more!

Title : Artist: amazing grace bag pipes
Album : Year :
Comment: Genre :
amazing grace bag pipes.mp3: No such device
amazing grace bag pipes.mp3: No such device

The same occurs with -o oss

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dave
