playing CD's through IDE cable


Hey,
I am trying to play a CD through XMMS or another CD player. I don't have a sound cable attached to my sound card from the CD player. I have setup my sound card correctly and can play MP3's, and the CD player displays the elapsed time when trying to play CD's. In the configuration options I have changed the CD player device from /dev/cdrom to /dev/scd0 but recieve the error

/dev/scd0 does not appear to point to a valid CD device. This may be because:
a) CD support is not present in your machine
b) You do not have the correct permissions to access the CD drive
c) /dev/scd0 is not the CD drive.

This means that the CD player will not be able to run.

I have changed the permissions on scd0. Any help would be appreciated.

It is required to have the sound cable. In linux DAE is not a capability... yet...

DAE is the Digital Audio Extraction done through the IDE cables. This is MUCH more CPU intensive and what's the point when you have a soundcard for that? Well that's what the audio cable is for

HTH

Cool

From my understanding this xmms plug-in is
able to play audio-CD's by digital transfer (no
audio-cable from CD to sound-card), but I haven't
tried yet (too lazy to rip my box apart ;})

Cheers,
Tink

Whoa! That's the first I've heard of this, just read the comments on it, certainly sounds like it can do exactly that. Thanks for the link Tinkster!

Cool
Pleasure mate ...

I only found that one because I never
liked the input plugin for CD's that came
with xmms ...

I've been using digital transfer with no
problems even on my old notebook (under
OS/2 - *sigh* - I _really_ miss it :}) almost 4 years
ago ... gave more volume than the cable ;)

Cheers,
Tink
