Now that I look into it I can't play CDs either. *lol* I think the plug-in issue is fine. It's something else. Let me see if I can get mine working and I'll get back to you.

Like DrOzz says, I'm going try some other things first.

All you need to do is either right click on the main XMMS window and select "Play Location" or on the keyboard do a [Control-L]. when the "Enter location to play" dialog comes up, put in "/mnt/cdrom" or where ever your cdrom has been mounted and then click "OK" or press enter.

There is sometimes a delay if you are using the CDDB lookup function (gets the CD details from the net) and/or using "Supermount" (automatic mounting of removable media like CDROMs).

If you're not sure where you CDROM has been mounted you can either type the command "mount" in the shell/terminal or check the file "/etc/fstab" using the command "cat /etc/fstab" also from the shell/terminal. You may need "root" privileges to do this. Look for "/mnt/cdrom" or "/cdrom" or "/dec/cdrom" or similar.

Hope this helps.

NOTE: I'm using Mandrake 9.1 (Redhat based) but this also worked with Mandrake 9.0/8.2/8/7.2, Debian 2.2/3.0 and Knoppix show it should work.
