Default Mplayer - can it play audio cd's.........

Now I have sound working, though I might listen to an audio CD. Yeah
right. Missing something again. Can't get an audio CD playing with
Totem.

I've never used Mplayer but though it can read hardrive audio files and
play them it can't play audio CD's or won't mount them on my system,
and being audio files I can't manually mount them either.

Googled and found some stuff, but nothing that would help.

Using Debian Squeeze 2.6.32-trunk-686

$ mplayer -cdrom-device /dev/media/cdrom1 cdda://track1

gives this error message:

MPlayer SVN-r30075 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team
Can't open joystick device /dev/input/js0: No such file or directory
Can't init input joystick
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote
control.

Playing cdda://track1.
The start option must be an integer: track1
Option hostname: Error while parsing m_span parameter start (track1)
Struct cdda, field hostname parsing error: track1
Can't open CDDA device.
Failed to open cdda://track1.


Exiting... (End of file)

Could anyone please let me know what I might put into ~/.mplayer/config
to possibly make this work?

TIA
Charlie

Note - in my experience (FWIW - I'm no expert) the answer to any question with the words 'mplayer' and 'can' is 'yes'.

I've never done this, but it looks like 'track' ought to be an
integer. What happens when you try

$ mplayer -cdrom-device /dev/media/cdrom1 cdda://1
