I installed SuSE 8.0 about 3 weeks ago (my first experience with Linux).
For the most part, I am very happy with SuSE. However, there are few
nagging problems that I can't solve due to my lack of experience using
For example, I am not able to play an audio CD. When I try to play an
audio CD using a graphical tool such as 'KsCD ', 'gtcd', or 'WorkMan', I
get an error message stating 'No Disc'. I have verified many times that
the audio CD is inserted correctly in the CD reader. When I run
'gcdplay' from the shell, 'gcdplay' logs an 'Input/output error'.
I am able to successfully mount, read, and burn data CDs. This problem
affects only audio CDs.
Based on information I found on the SuSE support database, I also
changed the file permissions for the CD-ROM drive to assign access
rights to the group 'disk'. I then added myself to the group 'disk'.
But neither of these changes solved the problem.
Has anyone experienced this problem on have an idea what may be causing
this? Thanks very much for your help.
