yeah, does it give an error like, "blocked audio device" in gui form? give some specs on your cd player also and what version of xmms you're running

well it started to work after I post the lol go figure. Any way I think it might have been a theme that I installed so I uninstaled it. Yet the problem persisted however I reinstalled it (the theme) and it started to work lol oh well.

thanks for your input.
