    playing mp3 songs from mounted C drive.


    im using Fedora Core 3 - with the KDE desktop environment.. i have mounted my C drive onto fedora, and i have access to my mp3 files. but none of the players seem to want to play the music.. can anyone give me a step by step instruction on how to make it work, because im new to linux.. and have no idea what to do!

    First off, you could wait more than 11 minutes before getting impatient...

    Do the players give you any sort of error message when you try and play the files?

    Try running, from the terminal:

    Code:
    xmms /path/to/song/song.mp3
    Where /path/to/song is the path to the song on your mounted C:\ drive.

    Tell me if you get any error message.


    If nothing else, you can always copy the song into your Linux environment and play it from there.

    i load the songs, but xmms doesnt seem to be playing them.. like it runs the title of the song.. but nothing seems to work.. the equilizer doesnt move.. and there is no sound..
