xmms problems

Until yesterday, I was able to listen to mp3s but not CDs. So, I downloaded the Cdread plugin and installed it. Somebody suggested on the newsgroup yesterday that I might have to use the correct link for the default device, for the plugin to function properly . After doing that (the link I am currenly using is "/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd"), I am atleast able to see the playlist now (which wasn't the case before). However, now I am not even able to play mp3s. Every time I try to play, this is the message I get :

Please check that :

1. You have the correct output plugin selected
2. No other program is blocking the soundcard
3. Your soundcard is configured properly

Choice 1 cannot be the problem as I have checked the OSS as my output plugin, which was working fine till yesterday. Even choice 2 I think is unlikely as there doesn't seem to be any other program which is blocking the soundcard. This is what I think has happened. The free version of the oss driver functions only for three hours after executing the 'soundon' command. If you want the driver to function again, you have to run the command 'soundoff' and then 'soundon' again. However, I am not able to execute the command 'soundoff'. These are the error messages I get :

emu10k1x: Device or resource busy
ac97: Device or resource busy
pnp: Device or resource busy
soundbase: Device or resource busy
sndshield: Device or resource busy

Can somebody help me out with this ?
