I don't have any movies so I tried CD-player and the only thing it can
do is eject the cd. It doesn't even list the tracks.
So it seems I have 2 problems. Unable to play system sounds and
inability to recognize audio CDs
The physical cd drive (actually DVD+-RW) does work. If I place a data
disk in, I can mount it.
thanks for your help,
