Package: sound-juicer
Version: 2.16.4-1

When I start sound-juicer from the commandline it prints "Error getting media type" and does not play the Audio CD-ROM.

** (sound-juicer:9056): WARNING **: Error getting media type

When I try to open the AUDIO CD from the Gnomepanel->Places->Audio Disk
a dialogwindow pops up with the errormessage "Could not open location 'cdda:///dev/hdc' - The default action does not support this protocol. The Audio CD will not play.
The default action connected with an Audio CD is the plain Debian standard "sound-juicer -d d%".

Other players work fine on the same system (hard- & software, I have tried : rhythmbox, "CD Player")

Using Debian Testing, kernel 2.6.21-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Jul 11 03:53:02 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux. Plain installation from Debian Testing netinst image.
