Just got this CD-DVD player burner, external USB, 'Speedy' H16X B02K. If put a music CD in it, then although the CD plays and the information about the track sizes and so on comes across, there is no noise.

Uploaded a music track from it, using xcdroast, and looked at it with the hex viewer in mc: it was all zeros, except at the very start, and maybe the end - don't know.

For what it's worth it seems like it's refusing to divulge the music. Anyway how to get it working? Are these things always buggers?

Thanks any help.
