Fedora Core 3 can't play music cds
I had similar trouble. I had music cds playing under FD core 1, but since upgrading the cdrom drive is now listed as /media/cdrecorder and it failed to correctly play audio cds. I can mount regular cdroms, but programs like Grip and Kscd give errors of "Unable to initialize /dev/hdd."
I finally resolved the problem by checking the permissions of the device, and I found that /dev/hdd was not readable by normal users. I executed a simple
chmod +rrr /dev/hdd
and now I have full audio capabilities again. Hope this helped!
