I have tried Amarok, VLC, rhythmbox. it is not coming up with any error it look like it is playing but there is no sound. there is no issue with soundcard it works perfectly with youtube, DVD's, videos on PC etc, even songs on PC work without a glitch, the issue is with CDs only. I'm at a loss as to what it could be which is why i am asking here. same with other linux distros. I have no error logs as according to the system there are no errors. ive even tried to remove error correction in system settings
really dont want to go back to M$ Linspire (8.5.1) is the best I've linux distro I've worked on for ages and I've been using Linux since 2004 Just a but confused in this issue.
