View Full Version : [ubuntu] Audio CDs stopped working with Karmic

January 21st, 2010, 12:40 AM
I tried upgrading from Jaunty to Karmic, which borked booting on that partition. I made a fresh install of Karmic on another partition which is booting fine, but I can't get Audio CDs to work, period. They worked in Jaunty and every release before that I had installed. Data CDs work fine in Karmic. I'm using plain ol' Ubuntu 32bit. I'm not sure where to start. There have been other threads where other people had identical symptoms. Either the problem went away mysteriously on its own, or they gave up because nobody believed them. In any case, I'm beginning to wish I had stuck with Jaunty.

I can vouch for the Sound Problem Solving sticky at the top of the Multimedia Video forum for solving sound issues in 9.10...takes less than 30minutes to go through the steps.

After following steps I was able to get CD to work and music files from hard drive to play.

Getting DVD sound was a little trickier and I eventually installed VLC and I have DVD sound with no issues.

That worked, thank you!
