Unhappy Problem playing music off vfat partition

I recently installed redhat 8.0 and mounted my windows partitions using fstab as usual. Despite having full permission being set for all users ( user,umask=000) When I try to play music off of one of the vfat partitions is doesn't work. It crashes konquerer. I can copy the music files from the vfat the linux partition and play it but if I try to play it off of any other partitions (even a cdrom) it won't work. Very strange. I had no problems with 7.3. Has anyone else had any problems with this? Also if someone knows a better permission string please let me know.

just a thought.... are you sure that you have vfat support loaded? do you get any error messages on startup?

If vfat support is not loaded then you cannot copy the files over to a Linux partition... I'm quite stumped by this, myself. Could you post your fstab entry for that partition?
