No music when playing CD's solved

Postby Coolboy81 on Sat Nov 15, 2008 8:13 pm

I have Banshee, Gnome Music Player Client and Rhythmbox but none of those will play CD's anymore for some reason. I can play mp3's just fine but I was gonna listen to a new album I just bought recently, inserted the CD and Rhythmbox automatically popped up starting to play it. It showed that it was playing but there was no sound. I then tried GMPC and Banshee but sound wouldn't work on any of those either.

Does anyone know what's wrong? Not sure if it's my soundcard that's messed up, I mean since I can play mp3's still.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! :D

Open the volume control (double click on the applet next to the clock)
Check that CD sound is not muted, which I guess it is

No, didn't help. Still without sound when trying to play off CD's. Very mysterious and extremely frustrating. Sometimes when putting in a CD the computer just makes a random noise and no music applications starting up at all.

Any more ideas on what could cause this?

I had the same problem with SUSE
Try this system applications sound under music and movies sound playback change from auto detect and manually select a setting. This worked for me

Thank you, it worked! Went into sound settings under "User settings" (I've got it set to Norwegian so I'm not sure if I used the correct name for it in English) and set a manual choice. I tried a random CD to test if it worked and it played the music on it! :D

Thanks again, now I don't have to boot into my Windows partition just to play CD's lol.
