This is already solved in the development branch. Since you use Fedora I assume you use the phonon-backend-gstreamer, but for completenes sake there was a bug with the phonon-backend-vlc which prevented CD playing until version 0.4.0, fixed since 0.4.1: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=276034 As for KsCD please report this separately for that application, it is not related to Amarok at all. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 285885 ***

Glad to hear that it is solved and look forward to the package update. Yes, I use the phonon-backend-gstreamer. Separatel, VLC has no problems playing CD audio though it is not the ideal choice. As Amarok plays CD audio when the CD is opened with Nautilus but not from the KDE menu or panel I have suspected that the problem lies with the kio audio slave. Is that correct?
Comment 3 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-04-02 11:20:01 UTC
Yes and no. There was a problem with the KIO slave and also with Amarok itself. BTW if I talk about the vlc backend I mean the phonon-backend-vlc, not vlc itself.
Comment 4 SP 2012-04-02 18:03:47 UTC
Yes, I understood that - and I was pointing out, perhaps irrelevantly, that the VLC program was able to play audio CDS within the KDE environment. How soon will the fix move from development to package release?
Comment 5 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-04-03 11:12:10 UTC
That will still take some time, we currently don't have a specific release date for 2.6
Comment 6 Schoelje 2012-05-03 15:48:53 UTC
I had the same problem with Amarok 2.4.3 and phonon-backend-vlc 4.1.1 After changing the default DVD path in VLC (which was /dev/dvd and changed it to /dev/sr0), not only VLC could now play audio-CD's but Amarok as well.
Comment 7 SP 2012-05-03 18:58:26 UTC
@Schoelje I tried the VLC phonon backend to no avail. VLC is already set to the correct device and can play audio cds without a problem. Amarok shows the audio CD - but the tracks are greyed out and will not play if added to the playlist. The same applies to KSCD. K3b will identify and rip a CD without a problem. I suspect the root of the problem may be that both Amarok and KSCD do not have the correct permissions set to fully access the device. Perhaps a matter of adding something to the right group?
Comment 8 Schoelje 2012-05-03 20:32:50 UTC
@SP For me, KsCD has always been working perfectly, so your problem is of another nature. I'm sorry I can't help you with that.
Comment 9 SP 2012-05-03 20:49:46 UTC
@Schoelje Which distro are you using? I have the problem duplicated on all my machines with Fedora 16 installed. Other users have the same or similar problem - it seems quite widespread and has persisted through versions.
Comment 10 Schoelje 2012-05-04 13:22:31 UTC
@SP I'm using Linux Mint 12 KDE 64bits.
