SuSE 8.1 Konqueror audiocd:/ command

The SuSE Linux 8.1 User Guide states Konqueror can easily convert audio CDs to audio files. I attempted this, following the instructions in the guide,
and kept receiving an error message: "An error occured while loading
audiocd:/: The file or directory / does not exist." As the guide indicated, I am a member of the group "disk" (my user id), and yet still receive the error message. The audio CD IO-slave is set at its default setting, that being, "CD Device -- determine device automatically". I tried manually configuring this thing, but did not succeed.
If you have any help, please send it my way. Thank you.

After you added yourself to the group disk, did you log out and log back in again to KDE?

EDIT: After adding myself to disk and restarting KDE, nothing loads for me for awhile and then I get the same error. I checked their knowledge database but it doesn't mention it. However, my CD and DVD ROMS aren't supported hardware so that's probably why.

Hello. I did log out, and log back in, and then tried to read audio CDs from Konqueror. It failed. However, when I logged in as root, it worked, and I was able to use the function "audiocd:/" So, why it only works as root, and does not work when I am logged on as a user, I do not know. Note: the user, me, is a member of the group "disk", as is the root; so, theoretically there should be no difference. Another stupid annoyance in the excessively complicated operating system known as "Linux". Why oh why don't I just use Windows? Or Mac?

Just to be sure that it's trying to access the correct device, trying explicitly telling it what your cdrom device is by typing:


Also, if you are using ide-scsi emulation, then make sure you specify the scsi device.

Good luck.
