    audio cd not working if not logged on as root


    have tried a number of apps to run audio cd, have added account to audio, users, even tried adding to root (temporarily). if logged on as root, cd autoruns, plays beautifully. if logged on as user, it can't find the files and won't recognize them, won't play. help?

    how do you have your permissions set on your cdrom drive: all users, root only, or group audio?
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
