Command to autoplay audio cd


I'm using Fedora Core 2 with Gnome.
What command should I use in "CD and DVD Preferences" to automatically play from either of my cd-rom drives. Currently I'm using:
xmms /mnt/cdrom
which is fine if I put the CD in that drive... but if I put a cd in the other drive, xmms tries to play from /mnt/cdrom... (not surprising
What command can I use to autoplay from the drive that I insert the CD into?

Thanks

I'm having the same problem.

I've tried using the %d variable in the place of the device mount path, as was used by the default gnome-cd autoplay command line, but that only launches xmms and opens up the playlist dialog at the device mount path, rather than starting playing.

Can anyone say what is the correct variable to use in this instance?
