Can you hear the sound using the headphones plugged directly
into the drive? If yes, then make sure the audio cable is connected between CD drive and sound card.

I missed the earlier part of this thread, so pardon me if this has already been covered or not relevent.

The CD volume is off in Kmix. It installs that way by default. Go to KDE ->
Multimedia -> Sound Mixer (Kmix) in your menu. Underneath the copper colored
disc move the slider bar up from the bottom.

I have all of the volumes in Kmix, except "Microphone" turned up high.
Only the microphone is muted. The volume in Kscd is also turned up to
100%. I don't know what else to try at this point.


Hello All:

This fixed it. The cable from the sound card went to the DVD drive (/dev/hdd)instead of the CD-RW drive (/dev/hdc). I was thrown off because both drives played music in Win2K, and the CD-RW played music through XMMS. Different data/signal paths I guess. And when I installed SuSE it automatically set up Kscd to go through the CD-RW drive instead of the DVD drive. I actually found this solution a couple of days ago in the SuSE support database, but since both drives play music OK in Win2K I discounted it. You learn something new every day.

Thanks to all for their suggestions.
