Unhappy Audio CD's

Ok I am am fairly new at this. I'll get right to the point. My mp3, ogg, and wav work great, but I can not hear my CD's. The player says that it is playing but not sound. I have tried everything that I could come across. I use Redhat 8.0 Please, a little help would be nice.

More Help Needed

I check out the sight that you suggested, and I do indeed have the same problem, but I have already done everything that they suggest there. Cable from cdrom to mother board--yes, Do I hear other formats of music--yes-mp3, ogg, wav. I am able to ripp and hear the music in mp3,ogg,wav formats. Have I tried other audio music applications--yes. For some damb reason I just can not hear music in .cda format. Even thought all my programs say they are playing it , and my cdrom does its sound like it is reading the music. Arrg. More help please. I do appreciate the help you have given me so far. Thank you.

I just glanced at that link so I don't know what I might have missed. Have you changed the fstab entry for your CD player to read 'auto' where it probably says 'ISO9660'. Maybe it's not necessary but I changed that when I was having trouble at one point and it worked. It's also how mine reads now. Otherwise, it will just *not find* an ISO9660 filesystem when it needs to find an audio CD.

There's also another quick one to check.

My system has both a cdrw and a dvd. For some reason, mandrake insists on calling the dvd - cdrom and the cdrw - cdrom2 on the desktop.

Through trial and error, I have found that the dvd is also known as hdb to the system (but doesn't have an audio cable) and the cdrw is known as scd0 and does have the audio cable - it just means that to listen to the audio cd's, I have to open kscd or grip and make sure that they are pointing at scd0 - which apparently is connected to the system using scsi emulation for burning.

Worth a try ?
