Default CD/Sound Problems


Installed system: Mandriva 2007 Powerpack 32-bit version.
Updates: I have as always applied all the Mandriva suggested updates.
Last Successful Action: On running sndconfig, my SoundBlaster AWE32/64
produces the expect voice.
Problem: When I insert an audio CD I get an Audio CD - KDE Daemon,
offering me two choices - 1. Open a New Window. 2 Do Nothing. Mandriva
responds correctly to the two choices. When I try Configure... on the
daemon I run into further problems.
Hoped for Response: That someone else has had this problem and can
suggest a solution.
General Comment: I have been successfully using 2007 as a scientific
workstation including the compilaton and execution of 'C' source code.
Thank you for any helpful suggestions.
Donald

Default CD/Sound Problems


It sounds as though the system can't recognize your CD as an audio CD. Mine
opens KSCD. Another possibility is to open Amarok. Have a look through
your File Associations under KDE.

At the same time, I think that it is deeper than File Associations. Kscd in
2006 had a problem, and no matter what I did with File Associations, Kscd
was still the default. The only other suggestion that I have is that when
you get that dialog, create a new action with the button, to open it with
your choice of app.

HTH,

Doug.

Thank you for the comments Doug. I'll try your suggestions.
Interestingly I briefly had similar problems with 2006, but at the time
I assumed that it was a self generated glitch. At the moment with 2007
the system refers to the CD device as ATAPI:/dev/hdd.
Regards,
Donald
