Toshiba 4x CD-Rom, can't play audio.

Post by Jonathan Tann » Sat, 01 Jul 1995 04:00:00



  Hello,
    I am running version 1.3.3 of the Linux kernel, and can succesfully
mount my Toshiba 4x CD-Rom and read data from it.  My problem is, I can't
figure out how to get it to play an audio CD.  I've tried using workbone,
and it says
:Device /dev/cdrom not found.  Is there some way to create this device
driver for an ATAPI CD-Rom?
  Thanks for any help/suggestions.


[1] WHERE the hell are the sound applications ?!!?

1. Toshiba 4x v. Mitsumi 4x CD-ROM

Here are the statistics I have compiled:

                Toshiba                         Mitsumi
Buffer          256k                            128k + 128k virtual
DTR Mode 1      600 kb/sec                      600 kb/sec
DTR Mode 2      684 kb/sec                      684 kb/sec
Access
 Random         150 ms                          
 4 Stroke                                       400 ms
 3 Stroke                                       230 ms
 MTBF                                           15,000

I can get either for $218.  Now, which one should I get?  Does the buffer
make that much difference?  Problems or compatibility problems?  Will
Linux have a problem with either?  Which is ACTUALLY faster?

I need to get a CD-ROM ASAP, and have about $200 to spend... and Quad
speed... either IDE or SCSI.  All information would be appreciated.

Thanks.
