Yeah - I would have expected any player bought in the last couple
of years should be OK (my "problem" players are generally at
least three years old).

I'm assuming you are reliant on the speech interface (if not,
there are a few different graphical CD players - such as xcdplay
and gtcd - which are probably already installed for you).  For a
text mode interface, you can use the command cdplay - for
example, from a shell under emacspeak. Use "cdplay -h" to get
some basic usage information - but just using it without any
arguments should cause an audio CD to play from the first track,
I think. Alternatively, emacspeak has a bundled interface to a
package called cdtool that allows you to control cd
playing. Within emacspeak, just give the command cd-tool to get
at this.  But it will only work if cdtool itself is already
installed.  You can get it in rpm form here:


Let me know how you get on.
