      I would like to play music CDs on a Dell Latitude D630, which has an antiX19core-LXDE setup.
      The main issue is when I insert a music CD into the R/RW DVD drive, an onscreen error notification pops up with the message “Location is not mountable”. There is no autoplay with the Rhythmbox media player, following insertion of the CD.

      If I replace Rhythmbox with VLC media player, I get the same error notification as described. However, I can play the CD if I select audio-CD from the VLC’s settings, but the DVD-drive spins the CD at what must be maximum speed – of course this is very noisy and spoils the music listening experience.

      Many thanks to anyone who knows how to fix this …

      PS. This is how the fstab file looks:

        You could try using Mp3blaster instead. This is a command line app included in antiX. All you need to make it work is an mp3blasterrc but I’ve forgotten how to make it but this is explained in man.mp3blaster.

        Of course, this only plays mp3s, so I’ll go back to sleep now, shall I?

          That looks interesting. The only problem is that I’m setting this up on my sister’s laptop – it’s best she has a gui-based system as she’s a beginner to linux, though I might have a look at this later for myself. Thanks VM – hope you got some sleep!

          I’ve added the fstab file info to the original post to give extra information.

            Pls try Menu section Settings Automount configuration.
            Tick automount box in the configuration window for music player on disk insertion.

            My Audio Disk command is /usr/bin/vlc cdda:///dev/sr0
            For another player change command as required.

            Your device may not be sr0, you can check with lsblk in console
            Mine looks like this so sr0 is needed
            sda 8:0 0 465,8G 0 disk

              Many thanks to you both – really appreciate your help & interest.

              SOLVED! :-)
              I finally solved it by using Clementine (my favourite media player in the past).
              Under Clementine’s ‘Devices’ category the CD icon is displayed, clicking on the icon shows the list of music tracks, clicking ‘play button’ just once, will make each track play automatically, one after the other to the end of the CD. Unlike the noisy rapid speed of the DVD drive experienced when using VLC (mentioned above), it turns at a quieter more normal speed with Clementine.
