    Weird problem with xmms


    I just installed the latest version of xmms, but I'm facing a weird problem. The MP3s on my HDD plays properly, but the when I try to play MP3 from a CD, it just plays the first 20 seconds and jumps to the next song in the playlist. Same thing happens when I try to play a single file. I checked out the options, but didn't find any clue... what's wrong?

    can you play normal audio CD's properly?

    Also, how did you mount the CD, and run from xmms?

    Nope, I can't play audio CDs using xmms, nor with the defult CD Player; it says "invalid disk"!

    If you mount the CD, then copy a file or 2 to the hard disk, does it play them ok?

    I also get this problem with Xmms. I fixed it once, but the problem re-occured when I installed Mandriva LE - I can't play CDs with Xmms as it displays /mnt/cdrom as empty from within the application.

    I can't remember how I sorted it out last time I've a feeling it had something to do with altering permissions somewhere. I prefer to use Xmms for CDs rather than the default app.

    I also remember finding a wierd work-around which involved going into a Visualisation plug-in and re-configuring it. Then it found all the cd tracks and played them I know this is odd
