Question Xmms does not play cd audio on RH 9!

I am using redhat 9. Although xmms plays mp3s and waves fine, it does not play at all audio from cds. Should i download any plugin? What plugin and from which site (i would prefer an rpm plugin)? Could the problem be solved by changing some settings in xmms? thanx in advance!

It doesnt say anything! The cd plays but no sound can be heard. I have the plugins that come with Rh 9 and i have also added crossfade, mp3 and itouch plugins. I saw in a site about a CD read plugin but i could not find a dowload (i searched google as well). Maybe it could be the output plugin that causes trouble.

do you have an audio cable from your cd-rom to your sound card?
