SOUND & VIDEO> VOLUME CONTROL
Everything is up all the way. Nothing muted.
The volume slider on the front right of the Gnome player is all the way up.
I also have a 2nd cdrom(burner) in the computer. CD"s won't play from there either. All cables are hooked up. I've gotta be missing something.
Looks like I'm almost out of options.
Okay, it's a boring night offshore where I'm off-shift... I'll give it a go. (I'm no expert, mind you, but I might just blunder-a$$ my way into an answer for you.)
If you have ready access to the back of the CD drives in question, check this: Are there two similar-looking places to plug in an audio cable? One of these will be a Digital Audio output already alluded to by Ryan. If your audio cable is there, try moving it over one socket to the analog output.
You have two CD inputs on the sound card you are using, or are you using a Y-cable to tie them together? Try unplugging one and see if you can get the other working by itself (sometimes those "separate" inputs are the same, just different shapes to accomodate different cable ends, and both being plugged in at once can do some wierd stuff.)
Oh, and if you're using KMixer, check the tab at the top and see if you are using the tab for your configured sound card...(KMixer can support more than one card at a time.) Don't know if the Gnome mixer has this feature right off the top of my head, but it might be worth checking there, too, especially if your motherboard has a built-in sound card you're not using... you might be turning up the volume on the wrong card.
Oh, well, gotta get on some paperwork I need to have ready for work in the morning. Talk to you all...
