Question XMMS/Grip find CDs, and songs, but won't play?


Hi, I have a wierd problem with my CD audio. Both XMMS and Grip find the audio cd, and show the songs titles/lengths/etc.. When I play them, both Grip and XMMS show the scroller moving across, showing that it is "playing" them, but no sound comes out. In XMMS the progress bar moves, but the sound levels graph doesn't move or show anything. It does this for both my CD Burner, and DVD ROM. My regular audio works fine (mp3s,etc..), my CD Drives have read permissions for both users. In Slackware I can play CDs fine (just my LFS where it doesn't work), so I know it isn't a hardware issue.

Actually, when compiling Grip I get this:
Code:
configure: WARNING: cdda_paranoia.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: cdda_paranoia.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: cdda_paranoia.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------ ##
configure: WARNING:     ## Report this to bug-autoconf@gnu.org. ##
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------ ##
Permissions on cdda_paranoia.h is fine (664).... Yarrr...

This may sound stupid, but do you have an audio cable running from both of your cdrom drives to you sound card? In Windows 2000 and up Mirco$oft used digital decoding to play cd's instead of analog, which is what the cable is. Have you ever played cd's on any OS other than linux, such as Windows on this computer? If so then take the side off your computer and check to see if you see a little gray wire that plugs into your cd-rom drives that has 4 pins on it. Not the power plug, but the audio plug this should be on the left side of the drive if you are looking at the back of it.

Ahahaha. That's the problem, thanks! lol, I can't believe I forgot about it... I think I have one of those cables lying around here somewhere, now I jst gotta find it Thanks again!

EDIT: I've used Slackware up until a couple of days ago (when I finished my LFS system), and I thought it worked then. But I comletely tore down/rebuilt my computer (I repainted it and stuff) a couple of months ago, and I don't think I've played a CD since then, I guess I forgot the cable thingy.
