System will not detect audio CDs

Postby trsnrtr on Tue Apr 14, 2009 7:49 am

First off, I'm really impressed with the new Mint 6 KDE version. It looks very nice.

So far, every thing has been working well until I tried to play a CD and the system won't play it or even show that a CD exists in the drive. I did some checking in the users/groups section and did have myself in the CD group. I also added myself to the disk group. The problem still persists.

Am I overlooking something?

I found that I had to 'mount' the cd 1st.
then navigate to the cd via 'my computer'.
& then run amarok or such like.

If I run mount /dev/scd0, I get the following message:

Code: Select all
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so


So, I ran dmesg | tail and got:

Code: Select all
[36889.967260] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 920104
[36889.969373] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 921344

I'm not really that good at this stuff, so any help is appreciated.

Hi

I have this problem too.

From my googling I have discovered that you can't mount an audio cd. (They work differently in some way). Also that Amarok 2 doesn't support audio cds.

Try typing audiocd:/ into Dolphin. It's possible that you could rip it then with k3b but I haven't had time to try that yet!

Cheers

I reinstalled KDE hoping that was the problem even though my research indicated pretty much what Barry said. I did however find that I could play CDs with KsCD and rip them with K3B. That's fine with me because I don't play or rip that many CDs anyway. :)

I'm having the same problem, I have tried the suggestions that have been offered here. KsCD just says no disc, the audio disc (and a 2nd one just be sure) are not picked up by Mint which was said to be a non issue. The only thing I've been unable to do (and I'm a complete Linux noob) is the suggestion for dolphin.

I have installed it, but I don't see any bar for me to type into it. I'll continue to mess with it, but any and all suggestions would be appreciated. So far this is my only issue with Mint and I can't let it beat me..

disregard... laptop hardware problem. Noticed that the drive seemed to be dropping once you removed data media from it. Swapped out the drive for a different one and it picks up the audio cd's with no problem.
