FYI, Linux does not do Digital Audio Extraction like Windows does. What this means is that you need a CD Audio cable connected internally from your CD-ROM to your sound card. There is a plugin available for XMMS, just search the forum for "XMMX CD audio" and you'll find it.

EDIT: Here's the post with the link:

Post the contents of your /etc/fstab file here...

In console, just type cat /etc/fstab
and we will be able to help you more after seeing it.

Downloaded what file? The fstab is already on your system, I'll need to see what's in it to tell you how to set your CD device. So if you don't mind, please post what you see (copy and paste here) when running cat /etc/fstab.

If you are talking about the plugin I linked, you only need that if your CD player has no wire inside the box. If you have that wire, this plugin is useless. I havent used it, so I can't tell you how to configure it.

And the post you told me about,,,

They said that I have to connect somewires inside,
Do I have to,
About the file I was talking about,
It wasn't a file, It was a bunch of files compressed in a .tar file that I have to download as what they said in that post .
SO,,, I've downloaded that .tar file and installed the package,
forgot to say that it's a cdreading plug in,,, [sorry]

I saw the plug in in the plug ins area in xmms and tried to configure .
The questions is :
How to set the device in that configuration ?
an other question:
If the device setting is correct,,,,,Where to play my music ? (Where do I find my audio cd files?)

I'll be thanking .

I think that's what you mean:

cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda1 /home/anmar/.gnome-desktop/Windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Tel me if I'm right please .
