Peter, be sure that the "sense" controls *are* muted; there are 2, one
is for headphone jack and I forget what the other was, but both had
"sense" in the names.  This fixed the problems for me.


I cann't find any "sense" controls. All i see on the control panel is;  master-PCM-surround-center
-LFE-line-CD-mic-mic boost-video-IEC 958-IEC 958 Playback AC97-SPSA-PC speaker-AUX. 
I muted them one by one though without any improvement.

I noticed that testing GStreamer Preferences (applications-preferences-more pref-multimedia
systems selector) both audio tests result in failure. I not sure if this is important.

I installed xine and was astonished to find out that both cd's and (movie-)dvd's can be played now.
I am happy and grateful for the hint someone of this list gave me.
Still i wonder why xmms and cd-player won work.
