That may very well be true. I'm using a Sony Vaio PCG-GRT170. I
finally tried XINE, and XINE did indeed play the CD. The player that
automatically comes up with KDE didn't, just silence. I tried again
playing with mute and volume levels for CD in alsa-mixer, but it
didn't make any difference at all. I am assuming that there is no
analog cable, and XINE is pulling it as digital data.
Thanks for the help,
