I am running 2010 KDE on an AMD Phenom, with 4gig of RAM and the MSI DVD -+RW is SATA.
I dropped a CD in the tray, closed it and waited for it to register/mount. Got the little pop-up that said it was available and I had six things I could do with it. Only one of them had anything to do with a CD (Amarok, which would not load it), two were for DVD (Kaffine and SMPlayer, neither of which would load it), two were for K3b and one for Dolphin(which would not load it). Only K3B would open the CD so I could rip it, which I did not want to do, I just wanted to listen to it. So, I tried "KsCD , Alsaplayer, XMMs and none of them would load it (in fact, KsCD and Alsaplayer would not even load). I finally opened Xine, and had it do a search for a CD and it found and played the CD.
So, am I screwing up (a decided possibility) or are there problems with KsCD and AlsaPlayer? Also, should a CD not register as a CD and load players that can play it?
Thanks in advance.
