Question Cd

I have a problem with my Linux os, everytime I put in a music cd it does not detect it. And my drive works fine cause, when I put in a dvd it works fine. And my sound card is fine too, but I don't get why its not detecting music cds. I was hoping you guys might have an answer how going about fixing this.

Thanks,

the specks are fine .
Windows dose things a different way than Linux .
90% of the time you do need to set a "default" program for music cd's ( they are different than movie dvd's)

i do not use suse so...
but there will be a system setting for that .
I was inquiring if it was 1 or 2 drives because "sometimes" the second removable drive might need to be set up ,in order to use it .but with just one cd/dvd combo drive that is not necessary

most of the time you need to open a music cd with the program that you want to use to listen to the music . I use "gnome-cd" - the built in on centOS - or mplayer MY default .
