    Smile Solved:Audio cd won't play


    I can browse a data cd in my dvd drive, my cd drive is completely useless.

    If I boot into Suse or XP I can play audio cds in both drives.
    I have tried several different configurations in my fstab, and none of them seem to work.

    This is my current fstab entries for the dvd and cd drives.

    /dev/dvdrw /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,users,ro 0 0
    /dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrom1 auto noauto,users,ro 0 0

    This is the error I get

    mount: /dev/cdrw: can't read superblock
    Please check that the disk is entered correctly.

    Sorry what's the exact problem here, maybe you could put it more clearly, like what are you trying to do?

    You know you can't mount audio CD's don't you?

    Just trying to play an audio cd using Amarok, Kscd and Kaffeine.
    When I try to do that I receive that error or something similar.

    I am not attempting to mount the audio cds.

    I even went so far as to do the unthinkable, login as root into X and try to play the cd that way.
    Then I receive an error saying that the superblock can't be read.

    Attempting to put it more clearly

    I have 2 drives, a cd and a dvd drive.
    In the dvd drive I can browse data cd/dvds, but I can't play an audio cd.
    In the cd drive I can't do anything.

    Both drives work fine in Suse 10.0. I can play audio cds and browse data cds.

    Ah, I now understand, though I'm not sure what's up at all, for the CD drive has it got any kernel modules you could load/compile into the kernel?

    I have it built-in
    Relevant section of menuconfig

    <*> ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support │ │
    │ │ <*> Enhanced IDE/MFM/RLL disk/cdrom/tape/floppy support │ │
    │ │ --- Please see Documentation/ide.txt for help/info on IDE drives │ │
    │ │ [ ] Support for SATA (deprecated; conflicts with libata SATA driver) │ │
    │ │ [ ] Use old disk-only driver on primary interface │ │
    │ │ <*> Include IDE/ATA-2 DISK support │ │
    │ │[*] Use multi-mode by default │ │
    │ │ <*> Include IDE/ATAPI CDROM support

    Should they be modules?

    I received the same error beore I switched it to /dev/cdrw.

    I did

    ls /dev


    to find that.

    Isaw that I had a /dev/cdrom directory, but there was nothing in there.

    Well i seem to have corrected my problem, I first ls /dev* to see what was there and i had /dev/dvd and /dev/dvdrw I configured my fstab to

    /dev/dvdrw /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,users 0 0, removing the /cdrom0

    It seems to be ok ,I can open cd with files ect, Why have you got ,ro after users What does that indicate?

    I could swear I when I took the entry from the handbook, that it was in there.
    Normally, ro suggests read-only.

    But taking that out did not solve the problem.

    Mactabilis, you said you can browse data cds, but can you listen to audio cds?
