Audio files in mandrake 9.2 not working


I have problem playing audio files from Cd. Music from hard disk works well.
First I used Mandrake 9.0 and everything worked fine. But, when i upgraded to Mandrake 9.2, audio files from CD does not work. I checked sumix and it looks ok.

Also, I'm not able to record sounds from microphone. Any idea would be gladly appreciated.

Thank you

did you check that your software cd player has the right source device listed? ie.. /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrom1, etc... i wonder if you also need an audio cable from your cd drive to your soundcard. check that. as far as microphone goes, look into this program, krecord. an easy cheesy program, but it works. also check your mixer settings to see if your microphone input level isn't at 0.
