    Listening to music off CDs

    Hi me again!
    I have about 3-4 programs for either listening or ripping music off cds.
    The problem is that they dont seem to recognize my cd player.
    I know the drive works because I can access data cds no problem.
    But, when I put a music cd in nothing happens!
    My cdrom drive seems to be located at: file:/mnt/cdrom/
    The drive itself is an external drive that connects through my PCMCIA slot.
    Hopefully this'll be a simple fix!

    Do you mount the cd before trying to play it? It needs to be unmounted to play it. And /mnt/cdrom isn't the actual device, it's the mount point. Likely /dev/cdrom points to the device, if not you can check fstab to see what is says mounts to /mnt/cdrom. Or you can check 'dmesg' and find the line for the drive, which should tell you which device it is.
