I have exactly the same problem on my Thinkpad 770 laptop with a CS4232 sound card. It works in Windows and I can play sound files in Linux (SuSE 9.0) but not CDs.

Getting sound to work at all was a real struggle...

Sorry but no answer yet!

Maybe it's hardware? I think you need to have the CDrom audio going directly to the soundcard.

I suppose you have checked with your mixer that CD audio volume is up and not muted ?

YES!! That worked for me - now all I need to do is understand all the various routes for sound and the paramerets that control them!

Many thnaks
