I've just installed SUSE 9.0 on a hp pavillion but when i play CDs there is no volume. Applications and the pre-installed games play sounds fine. What could the problem be?

A couple ideas. Open your mixer up (usually Kmix in KDE) and make sure you CD volume is up. There should also be a volume slider in the CD player app. Other wise I would check your optical cable that goes between your CD-ROM drive and motherboard/soundcard depending on your set up.

Hi , thanks for your reply. The volume is up, also my pc is dual boot with xp on the other partition. The CD player works fine on XP, so I'm presuming it's connected ok.

That is not necessarily true .... Windows Media player can play CD Audio without the audio cable ... So many companies no longer include the audio cables in their PCs.

I mean, everybody uses Windows Media Player, right? Nobody needs a real audio connector to the Sound Card anymore do they?

(Same philosophy that the computer manufacturers use to include WinModems ... they are cheaper and everyone is using windows anyway).

Look and see if your CDROM has a cable that looks like this between the CDROM and the Sound Card.

Looks like this:

If you don't have one, I recommend this one ... it fits just about everything:

or this one fits almost anything as well:

You can also configure xmms and totem to play audio via the IDE interface (just like Windows Media Player) ... see this link:
