I am having problems with xcdplayer 2.20 (package shipped with FreeBSD
I recently installed an IDE CD-ROM drive (Toshiba 16X) having previously
used an external SCSI CD-ROM drive (Plextor). With the SCSI drive, I
successfully recorded the titles of almost all my CD collection and they
would pop up in the window each time I loaded a new CD.
Now I am using the IDE CD-ROM drive (xcdplayer -device /dev/wcd0c), when I
load a CD, the highlight goes from the eject button to the stop button (as
it should), bu instead of the title of my CD appearing, "No Disc" remains.
I can save titles while using the IDE CD-ROM, but although they then appear
when using the SCSI CD-ROM, they still don't appear when reloaded with the
While the disk is being loaded, the program writes to STDERR the following:
ioctl(cdromreadtochdr): : Input/output error
This stops as soon as the CD has been scanned and does not occur again
while the CD is being played, only when a new CD is being scanned.
Any ideas, fixes, suggestions?
