Unfortunately the Mint menu item [Applications/sound & video], produces no output at all. A "dead menu item. However using the menu item [Control Centre/sound] brings up the sound selection menu which I firmly believe is also broken. The "test" button is useless, either producing no "test" sound at all or locking up the menu system completely.
Seems like a bad CD to me - it works fine here and for most others I believe
Admittedly I can't get a USB headset to work, but I have a feeling that has more to do with my USB hardware than Mint
