    CD Error Message


    Currently using Xandros 4.5 OC as my OS. When Audio CD is inserted I get the following error message? Unable to initialize cd-rom for playback, make sure you have permission to access the device ( /dev/sro ) and an audio cd is in drive. Also if using diret digital playback, make sure the appropriate audio backend (e.g. arts or alsa) is properly configured and the soundserver if applicable is running. ALso - Device is not mounted? - No automount maps defined.?

    I get the same error message whether I choose play audio cd using KDE Player or Open audio cd using xandros file manager. The CD player is running as the indicator light is on. The player works fine with XP. Is there someone that can tell me what do I do now? Thank you very much! ps

    open a xterm or use your favorite terminal program and then

    su -
    mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
    That'll mount the cd

    add to /etc/fstab:
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660n oauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    the above is one line

    That should make it automount.
