I didn't read all the mess in your post, but you don't mount an audio
CD. You can launch XMMS and right-click on it to bring up the menu
and then choose:
Play File
Play Directory
Play Location
it's all in the menu.

I appreciate both your reply and your not wanting to wade through my rant...

But my problem is:

What *is* the location/directory/file? ... Where are they?

When I got frusterated enough trying to view the files via term, I tried to "find" them via players with no luck?

When you use XMMS, what/where are those audio files to be found?


Thanks again..

My audio is now playing fine via XMMS.

I suppose the better question is:

How can files on an Audio CD be accessed/viewed/manipulated via command line and not using an external audio player?

I realize now that store bought CD's do not have "tracks" per se, however they still need to be accessed... how does this happen?

Thanks,

I always use XMMS with audio CDs, or with music files I've ripped
to my hard drive. Now, before you ask, I rip with these commands
Code:
cdparanoia -B
rip audio tracks from CD to wav files in current dir

oggenc --tracknum='track' track.cdda.wav -o 'track.ogg'
make ogg file from wav file

to convert wav to mp3
lame --r3mix audiodump.wav "`basename "$1" .wma`.mp3"
And then maybe you need some app, so check The Table of Equivalents or Google

but I didn't answer your question.

A. I don't know how to play audio CDs from CLI
