Cant play audio cds with any apps.


I have recently upgraded to a Samsung DVD-rom drive. I want to play audio CD yet Xmms, and even the built-in player in Red Hat 9, start playing the songs but no sound. Now all the channels are un-muted and I can play audio on xmms from the HD. What could be the problem? Many thanks in advance.

There's a very small cord that is supposed to be connected from the CD/DVD-Rom to the sound card. Did you put it there?

I've heard that the latest XMMS is capable of digital audio extraction, so you won't need that cable though...

well i seem to have the same problem, and guess what? im also on redhat 9


neither the most distant hint about what could be the problem; mplayer/xmms doesnt have problems playing mp3s or oggs all around.. but audio CD

W.O.N.T W.O.R.K

well it turned out that it was that the wire had somehow come loose and all I had to do was plug it back in and now it works like a charm. Have you checked that? And which audio drivers are you using?

Try this:
Open up XMMS, right click to bring up the menu, and goto Preferences.
Once in Preferences, select Audio I/O Plugins, then look on the scroll menu for the CD Audio Player plugin. Click it, hit configure, then check 'Digital Audio Extraction'. Then try your CD.

i open xmms, then i got to options->preferences


in the audio i/o plugins tab i select "Cd audio player 1.2.7", click configure

there are two tabs:

Device tab:
device: /dev/cdrom
directory: /mnt/cdrom

volume setting:
OSS mixer: check
CDROM drive: uncheck


CD info tab:
CDDB:
use CDDB: uncheck

CD index:
use CD index: uncheck

track names:
override generic titles: uncheck

nothing about "digital audio extraction"

there is however another audio i/o plugin called "audio cd reader 0.14a"

three tabs; CDDB Options and Output. the only interesting tab is the last one:

Output tab:
output mode:
read digital CD audio: check
play audio CD directly: uncheck


i tried changing to play audio CD directly, but doesnt help

the fact that i can play audio CD with no problems under windows98 doesnt mean that this cable (or any hardware related) is not the problem?

That Digital Audio Extraction tab is only in XMMS version 1.2.10. Hano, try downloading and installing a newer version from:
http://xmms.org
Then try that procedure.
