    CD issue when playing


    Hi, i have Grip and KS cd player on mandrake 9.1 and i can't get these apps to see the cd's i put in the computer. I can, on the other hand, see data discs and burn fine with K3B.

    I just opened grip and it is playing fine, i see the tracks and it's playing, but no sound comes out of my stereo. I opened XMMS and the mp3's are playing fine. No problems.

    What is the matter with grip and the cd player? Why is the cd seen by the app but there is sound?

    Most sound cards have a channel for CD audio, make sure it's unmuted and the levels raised in your mixer app.

    Ok, is this channel like supposed to be changed through linux or through the application itself, the app's configuration?

    It would be changed in a mixer app, like Gnome Mixer, or I think it's kmix in KDE. Sometimes a program will change it with it's volume control, sometimes it just amplifies what's already set. There should be something relating to mixers or volumes in your menus, I'd imagine.

    Like you said, i used kmix in KDE but all i could do after trying all possible combinations on the bars and buttons, was to remove all sound from the computer, or balance the sound to come out only on the right speaker on my stereo (which luckily got fixed by itself).

    I guess i'll play'em and rip'em from the XP box later on.
