    Default seeing music files off CD

    I've noticed that when I try to open a music CD it can't open as a group of files that can be played or copied to another folder. Most distros do this automatically, why can't openSuse? is it the same reason I can't see my other hard drives on this computer?

    How do I fix this problem? Mounting should be easy!

    This is easy in openSUSE-10.3 (KDE-3.5.7) and openSUSE-11.0 (KDE-3.5.9). What desktop are you using? I also (on both openSUSE KDE's) have kdemultimedia3 and kdemultimedia3-CD installed.

    As a test (a few minutes ago) on both PCs I put in an audio CD, and I had a popup then appear. I selected to open the CD (with konqueor file manager), and I dragged the appropriate .wav file to a /home/oldcpu/temp directory. It was that simple.

    As for your hard drive problem, what problem is that? Have you typed:
    df -h
    su -c 'fdisk -l'

    (enter root password when prompted)
    and compare what you get, checking to see if the contents match?

    I ran both commands and everything looks OK. I just put in a CD of random music files and it is read perfectly.
    I can play any of the files and they open in Amarok.

    I also ran this CD from the Super drive ROM instead of the older CDROM. I'll have to test some other CDs and see what I find.
