cd audio


Hi all.
I just burn an audio cd with k3b, and i'm trying to play it on the computer and i can't, i only got a message 'No cd inserted or inserted is not an audio cd' . I tried diferent programs [audacious,arnarok,kscd,vlc] without success. I can play it on my car without problems.
my current users is in groups: audio,burning,cdrom,plugdev...
i don't have problems mounting others cds/dvds [via HAL]

Thanks.

Is it possible you have more than one cd/dvd drive and the programs you mentioned are looking at the wrong one? Usually these programs default to /dev/cdrom which is a symlink to your actual cd player. If you have two cd players in your computer, check that the symlink is pointing to the right one.

Does the CD drive have an audio cable? Most Linux CD players work by playing through an audio cable which is connected to the back of a CD drive at one end and your soundcard (or motherboard for onboard sound) at the other end. If you're missing this cable then you will have problems. I think there's a plugin for XMMS and Xine that allows you to play CDs via the IDE cable instead, not sure about whether this is possible for other players.

Having trouble getting music cds to play too... I was told that the cable to cdrom frm mobo or snd card was only on older computers. Interesting that its needed in slackware12... I don't usually play music on pc but I am so frustrated desperate to get anything to work w/o an error message.

No...just shutdown and boot back into win98.. TG I have 2hard drives dual boot working. First thing I do when I learn how to get everything working is write a simple english manual for folks like me. It takes too much time to google and go from forum to docs and how to -- which non-techs have to google for terminology. lol
BCarey what u say makes sense but where are the symlinks to check? How do u change them if needed? Thanks

Better yet, use a distro that is made for people who need a simple english manual.

Sounds like you're just confused.

If you like slackware, Zenwalk has a manual and is slackware-based.
Ubuntu is often suggested, but you may prefer mint. Or try the chooser:

You have to add yourself in the cdrom group in /etc/group.

NightSky,
Sorry to take so long responding to this. If you type "ls -l /dev/cdrom" it will tell you which device it is symlinked to. If you need to change it, you first remove it with (as root) "rm /dev/cdrom" and then recreate it with "ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/cdrom". You would, of course, replace "/dev/hdd" with the actual device you want to use as your cdrom.

No need for the cable from cd drive to mobo/sound card. New pcs do not have it all. If you can play it on win, you can of course play it on Linux without any additional components. Make sure that if your cdrom drive is ATAPI/IDE one, it is not recognized as SCSI,

That isn't quite true. Some programs are able to play CDs on Linux through the IDE cable, but most of them still go through the audio cable. Case in point, I have a Mac Mini at home which doesn't have an audio cable, or a connector for one. It runs as a server without X, and I haven't been able to find a command line CD player that plays through IDE, which means I can't play CDs on it.

If any newbies stumble through this thread, here is an easy way to test sound from Desktop file manager after setting up basics: '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/login.wav' or whatever .wav sound and double click on it, audacious pops up and plays the .wav.

So audacious error pop up message:"No playable CD found. No CD inserted, or inserted CD is not an audio CD." meant Cdrom was not found(in my case).
I found this in google:

[CDDA]
device=/dev/cdrom
directory=/mnt/cdrom
mixer=2
num_drives=1
title_override=FALSE
name_format=%p-%t
name_cddb=TRUE
cddb_server_=freedb.fredb.org
cddb_protocol_level=0
------------------- and added it to /home/username/.config/audacious in file manager. Audacious works for me manually now.
