XMMS death

My XMMS has some serious problems. I use MDK 9.1 and when I put in a CD full of MP3s, I can open the directory /mnt/cdrom and play them just fine. If I exit and then later put in a different CD, the program freezes trying to open /mnt/cdrom. I kill the process and then XMMS will not restart. I need to remove the package, reinstall it, and then it works again. Until, that is, I want to change the CD I am listening to. The same problem applies to audio CDs.

Thanks Tink. I've discovered something that has also solved the problem. If I exit XMMS, restart and clear the play list, and then try to read a new CD, it works OK.
