Cd PLAYER doesn't work....

It worked a couple days ago, and now it doesn't work. It mounts the CD, and that's about it. I click the CD-R icon and it loads for a sec then stops and nothing happens.

So I try to access the CD from K3B and it recognizes there's a CD in there, cause it has the track list in the top right, but I can't even scroll or anything to view the tracks, or click them to play them.

I CAN however still burn a CD from MP3s, and the CD burner is recognized as there, but for some reason I can't play CDs, burned or original....

Thought it was just the player program it's trying to use (KCD or something, the default player), so I switched it to Mplayer, and Mplayer loads, but it plays the last file I played on Mplayer, which is a vid I DLd.......

Any suggestions? I dunno WTF is goin on, LOL, just trying to rip some tracks off the CD and it won't even PLAY a CD.....

You don't click on the icon to play an audio cd. You open KSCD and that plays the disk. If you want to rip audio from the disk, use Grip.

Yeah, KSCD was what would open(by default) when I clicked on the CD-R Icon and play the CD. I know it WAS loading because you know when you click on it, the little loading icon that appears next to the mouse arrow shows it loading. Then, it stops, and nothing happens.

So I reassigned the CD Executable to use Mplayer instead of KSCD, it loads Mplayer, but it ignores the fact that it was supposed to play the CD.

So I wanted to check if it recognized there was a CD in there by using K3B. Sure enough, there is a track list, but it's all grey and I CAN'T play it through there either....

WTF happend?

Like I said, it USED to work, but it doesn't anymore....
