gnome-cd will not play, sound-juicer segfaults. vlc has no problems


For a couple of weeks I have been unable to rip CDs, and play audio CDs. Mounting CD roms is not a problem (and I am not trying to mount audio CDs). I can play audio CDs with vlc just fine, but I am not interested in playing CDs, I want the darned audio in flacs on hard disk!

Sound-juicer starts up all fine, getting the CD information from MusicBrainz, but when I click "Extract", it displays
   "Sound Juicer could not extract this CD. Reason:
    This CD has no audio tracks"
   Clicking ok gives:
   "SJ could not extract. Reason: Error starting ripping pipeline"

Called from the command line, the following extra is displayed:

GLib-CRITICAL **: g_source_remove: assertion `tag > 0' failed

And dmesg reports a segfault.


Gnome-cd displays "Drive Error"

Called from the command line, it keeps printing
    "ERROR: This CD has no audio tracks"


The Disks Manager found under Desktop->Administration agrees that it's a _NEC DVD_RW ND-3540A. Further it says "Audio Disc inserted", and that "Play Audio" is listed under "Supported Features". The Audio CD-rom tab correctly keeps track of how long the CD is and how many tracks it has (but of course, clicking play calls gnome-cd, which produces the errors mentioned above).

I just apt-get updated, and gnome-media is now at 2.14.2-4, but this did not help.

$ dmesg | grep hdc
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:DMA
hdc: _NEC DVD_RW ND-3540A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdc: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
$ uname -a
Linux lex 2.6.18-3-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Dec 4 17:04:37 CET 2006 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I know a few things about computers and Debian, but when it comes to external media I am a total idiot, so any help here will be very, very much appreciated.
