you probably need to edit your /etc/fstab... for example:


from this:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0


to this:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

i know that your normal users aren't able to listen to audio cds on your xmms...

what i'm asking is if your normal users are able to listen to mp3s...

i think it's pretty logical why you'd wanna try with an mp3 and not just an audio cd...

if normal users can listen to mp3s (but not audio cds), then the problem is probably in xmms' configuration, or the cd-rom device permissions...

if they can't even listen to mp3s (but root can), then the problem is probably your audio device permissions...

it helps if you post the error messages your normal users get when trying to play music...
