Audio CD's cannot be mounted, because... well, I really don't know why, but I guess it's just not a "normal" filesystem structure.

If you want to listen to or rip them, whatever application you use for it should detect it. You can try RipperX or install k3b from the repositories and it should rip your music just fine.

Happy ripping! ;)

actually the reason you can't mount it is because audio cds have on real file system. But he's right any audio player should recognize it even when it's not mounted.

Exactly! That's what I wanted to say.  ;)

Put a music CD in your CDROM drive. Boot up xmms and play the CD. Open a terminal and type "alsamixer". Unmute the appropriate controls with "m" and use your arrow keys to increase gain or volume until you get sound. Read "man alsamixer" for help. You might need to adjust a few controls before it will work.

Also click on the little speaker icon on your panel.
Doesn't that one access alsamixer, lagagnon?

No, that one opens xfce's own mixer.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
