Ah. I get it now. I was confused about the actual problem here.
The issue is that I cannot access audio cds on my cdrom drive. I'd like
to rip the music stored on this Groove Armada disc, and/or play it
directly from the drive. I usually use xmms to play music and grip for
ripping. I have not succeeded at making either of them access the
music cd. xmms does not give much feedback. Grip provides a popup
message: "Error: Unable to initialize [/dev/cdrom]". (/dev/cdrom is
indeed a symlink to /dev/hdc on my system.)
In the past I have been able to easily access this drive with both of
those applications, on an older system. I built a new system and just
pulled this drive out of the old one.
I'll look into it more tomorrow. In the meantime any suggestions or
comments are of course appreciated. Thanks to everyone for the help.
