Start XMMS

Press Ctrl+P

Select  Audio I/O plugins

Select CD Audio Player 1.2.11 (libcdaudio.so)

If it's disabled, click on Enable Plugin

Click on Configure

Under Device:

Change the directory to the drive. Example /mnt/hdc

Under Play mode:

Select Analog if you have an audio cable running from the motherboard to the CD/DVD player .

Otherwise select Digital audio extraction.

On the CD Info Tab:

Enable Use CDDB

Click OK twice.

Press Shift+L

Navigate to the /mnt/hdc

Press OK

The playlist should populate with the track names (if the CD is in the database).

I did check for the cd-audio plugin and see that it was active.
I did not know that by hi-lighting it I could configure it.
It was pointing to /mnt/cdrom instead of /mnt/hdc.
So...I have learned something new!
Combo3....thank you very much......Alan.
