Audio files are not found

Postby Zeeone on Wed Sep 10, 2008 12:05 pm

Just loaded XFCE 5. I have tried with a standard CD unit and a DVD-RW, Same thing happens.

I can place data or MP3 disk in and I can copy to the HD, I can play the mp3's from the Hd using Exail.

If I place a audio disk in, Exail comes up, but can not read from the disk, nor can I read from the file system.

Any tricks, hints or the same from anyone?

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

WIth the latest kernel it sometimes doesn't make the cdrom as /dev/cdrom.
To make it work try setting the device to /dev/scd0 for the 1st cdrom or /dev/scd1 for the 2nd.

Thanks for the response,

No, It is only a single CD unit and it was listed as /dev/cdrom. Like I said it was reading data and MP3 back and forth to the HD. But when I put in any audio disk, all the file handlers just showed blank.

Not my machine anyway, fixed it by loading Ubuntu(ick) and everything works right.
I will fuss with Mint 5 later.

Thanks
