Somehow, during some update/upgrade cycle, I lost my cdplay capability.
I use WindowMaker, but I don't know if that's the only one with this problem.

My cdrom's are all configured as ATAPI devices pretending to be SCSI devices.

The current path information looks like:
bash-2.05b$ ls -l /dev/cdrom
lr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 13 Apr 21 12:04 /dev/cdrom -> cdroms/cdrom0

bash-2.05b$ ls -l /dev/cdroms/
total 0
lr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 34 Dec 31 1969 cdrom0 -> ../scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/cd lr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 34 Dec 31 1969 cdrom1 -> ../scsi/host1/bus0/target1/lun0/cd

bash-2.05b$ ls -l /dev/scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/
total 0
brw-rw----    1 root     cdrom     11,   0 Dec 31  1969 cd
crw-------    1 root     root      21,   1 Dec 31  1969 generic

bash-2.05b$ grep cdrom /etc/group

I'm username=>tallison

The path is OK and the rights are good as far as I can tell.
These are usually the first things to go wrong.
Now I'm on to the second one's and I'm not really sure what to do.

what is your permission to your sound device? and are you a member of "audio" group?
