Thank you both for your answers. I was hoping to hear something like you 
told me. I tried a music CD that I created in Windows from mp3s which 
were converted to audio files,, and it did not open Rythmbox Music 
Player as it is set to do on the Media tab.

Is there some way to add other programs to the selections in there? I'd 
like to set audio CDs to be played in Amarok, but it isn't on the 
selection list.

Later, Ray Parrish
