Just for the record...


In another thread (Frustrated with...) I found out that by typing in "chmod a+r /dev/hda" I could change the permissions and now both Grip and Music CD Player can read the discs and play them! The only problem is, even though my sound card is recognised and I can hear the test sound, when I open Grip and try playing a song on whatever volume I can't hear the song! Can you please help me? I have come this far and I just want to finish it off. Thanks in advance,

J_K9

P.S alan: I haven't been able to try updating the udev yet because I have the file on my External USB HD which I am having trouble mounting. Thanks for all your help though.

It's a laptop isn't it? Linux doesn't tend to use the "digital CDDA ripped" sound from the CD player. It just instructs the CD player to play and relies on an analogue output from the CD player into the sound card. This should all be built in in a laptop. So I would suggest opening the volume control (I do this by right clicking the little speaker icon) and to scroll along all the faders and see if the one called CD or aux input is faded down (I've just checked and it is on my computer - by default). Anyway - glad you've got it almost working - you'd be bored if was easy!

I am having the same issue with a cr-rom, cd-rw so i pulled those and installed a new Lite-on dvd rw. I can play a test sound and it detects the sound card but no sound on boot or when playing the audio cd. I did install dvd::rip, do I need to install anything else? Any help would be awesome. I have converted an old Gateway desktop to the Fedora.

Again check those faders on the Volume Control

Also on a desktop you need to have an internal audio cable to play back audio CDs. This will go from the CD drive "audio out" to the motherboard or sound card (probably marked CD input). I believe you can make it work without this cable, but only with XMMS and adjusting the settings to use digital audio extraction.

Thank you so much alan_h404!! It was that the "CD" column in "Volume Control" was at the bottom, so I just moved it up and voila! Thank you very much for all your help!

I have that cable attached to the dvd rw and to the sound card. Like I said it will play a test sound just not the cd. I am thinking it may have to do with analog vs digital? I did all the updates as suggested in previous posts. You will have to forgive me as I am new to Fedora and am still learning. On another note if I leave the cd in upon boot/reboot it gives some errors saying it couldn't read track 1, 2, etc. maybe that will help.

I have finally figured it out, thanks to everyone that gave me ideas. After going into the Volume Control I can finally hear my cd when I play some Disturbed. Sorry for being such a noob. Again thanks for the help.
