Never mind :-(
It's working now. Somehow my ststem had gotten into a mode where
playing even comercialy mastered VD's gave no sound output. Rebooting
At the moment, I suspect a conflict, as I am uisng one combo device
for CD read/write, and DVD read/write, and I'm getting some strange CD
looking error messages on the root console, when I open up the drive
to insert a DVD.
Is there someplace in the configs, where it can be set up to try
to read a CD/DVD when it's inserted W?O operator initiatan? If
there is, than I definately need to trun this off.
I would add a CD R/W, but I/m out of places on my IDE chain, and
have no more PCI slots to add another controelr.
