    That doesn't sound like it's partition related. Have you tried copying some of the files over to your Linux partition and playing them from there? Have you successfully played anything through Rhythmbox to date?

    yeah, at one point I got one of them to work but now none of my music players work. i tried it in amarok for instance and it told me "audio output unavailable:the device is busy"
