For myself, I tend to agree, but not for everyone ;-)

Mikkel says that both Gnome and KDE use gnome-volume-properties, and it looks 
as though he is right.  I changed one setting there, and the next time I put 
the disk in it played.  I stopped the disk, took it out, and set out to 
demonstrate that the problem was solved, but when I put it back in, it didn't 
play.  Something, somewhere must not have shut down cleanly, and I had to log 
out before I could persuade it to play again.

My husband did use it last night, and it behaved for him, so I'm hoping the 
glitch was a one-off.
