it spins for a few seconds then it stops. nothing else happens in
rhythmbox, no timer etc. i am using gnome, volume is good like i said
cd plays in sound juicer. is it possible the rhythmbox/gstreamer can't
play wav files? ive installed all plugins for gstreamer but i am not
sure if rhythmbox uses gstreamer. i dont have the analog cable from my
cd/dvd drive to my sound card.
