Question what's wrong with my cd-drive and/or audio cd's?


hello..
the problem is I cannot mount audio cds.. the error msg is:

>>mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so <<

(with data cd's there's no problem at all -- I can mount such cd's, and play mp3/wav files stored within, 4ex, in my backup cd.)
Yes..my cd driver is a recorder one... I guess it's something related with cd player & recorder's.
Any idea how can I deal with it?
thanks in advance

You cannot mount audio discs. They don't have a valid filesystem that you can use to mount them on Linux. You play audio discs by using apps like kscd, gnome cd player, xmms and beep media player. All you need to do is to configure them to play the disc from the right drive.

I don't know for sure, but I don't think you're supposed to (or are even able to) mount audio CDs.

Edit: damn you, reddazz!

ok, pals...thanks to all. reddazz: you're right. ;-)

I've been trying things with sound apps, and here are the results:
/*
alsamixer: the (most important) working knobs are 'headphones' and 'pcm' ..I'm wonder why the 'master' knob doesn't make any change in sonud.
*/
--logged as Root--
%working just fine: gxine & totem.
%working without sound: default cdplayer, kscd. (it means the track name, song list and time counter works ok, I can hear the cd player 'running' and everything looks like it's playing... but no sound at all).
%not working: xime(err.msg:"there's no MRL"..what does it means?), kaboondle and noatun.
%not *even* starting app: volume(or sound) control.
--logged as raw user--
%%nothing works at all. differents error msgs. **maybe it's coz the permissions..how can I change that?

any suggest, ideas on what's goin' on and how can I do to get all of the apps working?
thanx-A-lot..

Maybe 'chmod -R a+rwX /dev/snd/' will fix the permissions.
But first check the permissions before u change them.
In alsamixer look so things ain't muted (m=mute/unmute).

yes Nille_kungen, I already discovered the mute status.. and I'm gonna check thats permissions you're talking about..
..but the most important issue (I think so in here is the related to the non-working apps, coz it's sound like a it's some kind of configuration error -- or missing configuration routine
**BTW: I'm playing some a-go-go music right now ("the holy cows", from the 60's tv show 'batman', just making 'su', and starting the player from a console. >>that's really *cool* music, isn't it?

well.. I've made a C-code list of msgs displayed by a cdplayer and kAudioCreator
#included whitin 10.1.
/*all of this logged as r0oT*/
//one woking ok: gxime.
//xine:
printf("there's no mrl"); //what's 'mrl'?

//in KAudio Creator, traying to extract a song from cd:
printf("there's no 'codificador' /*something like a.. - ..'codifiquer',
or 'code-maker' soft.*/ selected. Plz select a 'codificador' in the configuration. \n");
//what configuration is that?
//another msg from same app:
printf("cdrom read error. Check your permissions to to reach /dev/cdrom.");
// r0oT! I said..
/* ..in spite of that msgs, the extract process began, and a couple of minutes later.. */
printf("The 'codifiqued' file was not created. The wav file has been eliminated. \n");
//
return -1;
