Re: Help! I'm going crazy: Debian based distros and cd audio playback ...

I am dual booting 2 Debian sid distros (LinuxBBQ Kielbasa) and (siduction) and both notice audio cd's just fine. I also have Linux Mint 14 Xfce on a laptop and it also notices audio cd's without a problem. Question, is your cd/dvd player internal or external connected through usb?
Also could you post the output of

"lspci" and "uname -a"

?

The question is if the CDs are actually recognized (by the system, not the player) and if it happens to any kind of CD, DVD, CD-RW or only to audio CDs.

Another program to try is cdparanoia, that should rip tracks from cd without any problems.

Edit: Sorry, not installed on the default #!

Is it an ordinary CD or an "enhanced" CD (CD Extra or CD Plus or something like that)?

Re: Help! I'm going crazy: Debian based distros and cd audio playback ...

I can add two more players that can play audioCDs out of the box - parole (xfce player) and audacious (with audacious-plugins package: open the playlist and chose "ADD/Plugin Services/Play CD").

The problem is caused probably by the changes introduced with udev and gvfs. The CD/DVD-drive (in my machine /dev/sr0) is now mapped neither to /cdrom directory nor to /dev/cdrom - which are the defaults compiled into most players - but to /dev/cdrom1. The /cdrom directory remains always empty and the cdrom link in the /dev directory points to sr1, which is the first (pseudo)partition of  a data CD, but has no sense with CD-audio. Changing that link to sr0 causes some players and rippers to cease ignoring audio CDs, but after the reboot the initial settings are restored by udev. Some rippers eg. ripoff or asunder have an option in the preferences menu to setup the CD-ROM device (important in systems with more CD-drives) - typing the proper device name ends the problem.

Moreover, after inserting an audioCD into the drive, a subdirectory named "/cdda mount on sr0" (with spaces!) is created in the hidden ~/.gvfs directory, which contains all the tracks as .wav files, that can be played by any player, including command line play (from sox package). And some players eg. qmmp can open an audio-CD as a stream with "cdda://" URL.

Re: Help! I'm going crazy: Debian based distros and cd audio playback ...

And now the funniest thing, which I have not noticed up to now, as I work with my files in midnight commander rather than in a grapical file manager. When you open one - be it Thunar or PCManFM - the Audio Disk is quietly shown in the side pane, and the tracks in the main window - with the .wav extension. You simply click and play them with the system's default player. Naturally, file managers should have better understanding of the current gvfs tricks than audioplayers, especially not very recent ones.

Concerning mplayer, I strongly suspect that it is hard encoded to look for the cdda:// location in the /dev/cdrom directory. The XCFA ripper, which uses mplayer to pre-listen tracks before ripping, can somehow force it to play an indicated track, but it does it with "hiccup", pausing every 2-3 seconds, as it had very limited access to the CD.
