cd player


In Red Hat 9 my cd's are mounted, all sound works on the computer and on the internet(except for some plugins I need to set up with my browser) But when I try and listen to an audio CD it plays but there is no sound. All the hardware is correct. I used the sound card in XP and Mandrake and it worked fine with the cd player.

Did you check the volume for the cd player?

Do you have a 4 pin cable running from your sound card to your cdrom drive?

audio cd's (if they are standard, playable in a typical cd player) do not need to be mounted (i don't think they can be mounted anyway without special software)

make sure you have the line hdx=ide-scsi in your bootloader's config file where hdx is your cd drive (check dmesg to find out)

then make sure /dev/cdrom points to that device and has proper permissions; do ls -l /dev/cdrom and ls -l /dev/hdx to check that the permissions (should be 777) and do file /dev/cdrom to check the link

like stated above, also make sure you have a wire from your cd drive to your sound card

now all you have to do is put the cd in the drive (don't try to mount it) and then just let cd player read it

What software?

What software are you using to play the CD?

Since you have no sound, what kind of feedback are you getting that makes you confident it is playing?

I also had problems playing music CD's on my system, but my problem was related to point to the right device as TheOneAndOnlySM brings up.

A good thing to check is plug headphones or your speaker directly into the jack on your CD and see if you have your music then.
