I know that. and my suggestion had nothing to do with missing codecs and
the like. You might have seen my other post in the thread that explains
that Ubuntu will offer to download the codec anyway if it is missing, at
least for the gstreamer-based default applications.

My point was that certain DRM-crippled commercial CDs don't let the
operating system see the files (or not all files) in the first place
when one does not use Windows and/or a crappy program that is supplied
on the CD.
It might have nothing to do with your problem, but might be worth
