KsCD; No music

Hello Friends,

I have a little but frustrating problem with KsCD, KDE's cd player. I use KDE 3.1.1 and I have configured all the necessary settings for KsCD on my computer.

I can play CDs, but there is no music output to the speakers. I can hear every other sound, for instance when opening or closing windows or when kde is starting up and so on. But I can't get music output from cds.

Funny enough, KsCD shows the track number of the CD playing, the number of tracks the CD has, the current track playing and all other relevant information, but still there is no music output to the speakers.

Like I said, the desktop theme sounds and every other sound works, but music sounds from cds don't. :? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks. :)

KDE Seeker.

I answer you in other forum

I answer you in other forum but here is again ;-)

There is a cable that is plugged from CD-ROM to sound card, whitout it your Audio CD not sound, in Linux, Window or whatever you use.
So open your PC and look for this cable.

If you don't know how to connect it, ask to your PC vendor o see your PC or sound card manual.

Greetings and bye

I dont think that is his problem to be honest. I have the same problem, and the problem is not with that cable.
CD audio works for me under windows xp and red hat 8, but not under Mandrake 9.1
