no cd ripping, no cd playing with Fedora Core 2


Weird problem with, no doubt, a simple solution (though I can't figure it out)...

I've installed Fedora Core 2 on my machine and this pretty much the first real problem I've found. The CD player won't play sound and similarly grip and Sound-juicer won't rip CD tracks. I thought that it might be something to do with the fact that my CD-ROM is in an external housing, but I'm pretty sure I can discount that as XMMS will happily play CD tracks (when set to "Digital extraction"). Its worth noting that although no sound is played when I press play on "CD player" or grip/ sound-juicer, the little progress bar moves, the track details show and I can select the full range of tracks.

Any suggestions?

i think it is the external thing...
internal cd drives have a wire for analog audio out connected straight to the sound card.
but digital audio is a good thing !!!!!!
analog audio sucks so no problem there.

are you sure Sound Juicer didn't create usable ripped files ???
Sound juicer and anything using paranoia like grip should work fine ???

Yup, sound-juicer just chokes and crashes. I think it might have something to do with needing the audio cable to record wavs, but I'm not sure. I've never had this problem before...

[edit] I knew it was a simple answer, I changed the ripper in grip from: grip (cdparanoia) to cdda2wav and now it works fine, I can rip to my hearts content Now I've just got try and make it save in the right folder

+1 to using Linux

What worked for me was changing the config of the CD Audio player plug-in in XMMS, change the setting from "analog" to "digital audio extraction", this allows you to play CDs. Hope the fix I found for grip helps you too
