No not at all. It wasn't that long ago that I was being offended when someone DID tell me to "go mount your cdrom". But I was offended because I thought someone was trying to be crude to me.
Yep, it is mounted and I can read AND listen off of audio cd's. I got XMMS to play the audio, after going to preferences and adjusting "CD" to retrieve digital or something or other. But I can't get other CD playing programs to play the audio yet.
However, I don't have the audio cable connecting the sound card to the cdrom. I've never had any problem with it before but I guess I'll try that next.
