I'm having a problem getting an audio CD to play under slackware 9.1. Sound is configured correctly, i.e. mp3's work fine along with mpg's. I have tried with XMMS and the default GNOME CD player, but no joy. XMMS finds the disc and sees the .cda files there, it even acts as if it's playing them (progress bar moves along), but I get no output?
I am using:
Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 08)
Samsung CD/RW SW-252B
When I go to the input configuration for playing Audio CD's, I have the following:
When I click on "Check Drive" I get: Digital audio extraction test failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device ??
I've tried every possible combination but with no luck - I have run alsamixer and raised all possible volumes, yet I still can't get it to play from audio CD? CD drive works fine for data etc, the one thing I haven't tried is hard-wiring the audio-output of the CDROM directly to the soundcard due to lack of cable.
Any suggestions would be excellent as always!
