[SOLVED] xfce recognizes all cd's except audio cd's.

I recently installed arch+xfce.  I went to play a cd (audio) and found that it was not recognized.  My system will recognize non-audio cd's but audio cd's it doesn't even see.  I have looked around but have come up empty-handed.  Any help would be appreciated.

Greg

To read audio CDs you need a player capable of reading audio CDs (just like you you need a program to watch videos or open images). Try with your favorite media player, most probably it is capable of doing what you want.

You can also look into cdfs.

I should have mentioned this intially.  I have tried with xfmedia, mplayer, and rhythmbox and none of them see when I have an audio cd in the drive.  They act like it is empty.

I have installed cdfs but have not yet had a chance to look into very much though.

I have tried an audio cd with xfce and of course it doesn't recognize it (there is no file system on an audio cd as in a data cd), then I've opened vlc -> media -> open disc -> audio cd and it just works.

jesus, mary, and joseph,  music is born again!  This is great.  Thanks for the advice Rookie.  Vlc works.  Although I would still like to know why the other players don't seem to know what is going on. 

Thanks, Greg.
