gstreamer audio cd playback problems

Bug Description

I have a problem with audio cd playback on my computer. I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 64bit beta but the bug is just the same with 7.04 32bit (same computer).

With every program that uses gstreamer like rhytmbox, exaile, sound juicer and others apps cd playback has buffer problems, the song start with strage noises like scratching on a vinyl disc, then the song plays normally, these noises get worse if I skip forward or backward manually, they usually last for a couple of seconds but sometimes the song plays badly even in the middle without me skipping manually. If I extract the song with sound juicer the noises are exactly the same when I play the mp3/ogg file.

In xmms cd playback is flawless, even if I set the cd plugin to digital and not analog playback, it's slower to start but the song plays without problems. Same thing with Vlc, perfect result.

I came to the obvious conclusion that it's gstreamer, I have dma on and IO set to 32, actually ubuntu does that by itself I haven't modified anything.

My comp specs are:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9-RH ?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2294&ProductName =GA-K8N51GMF-9-RH

Athlon64 processor, 1g of ram, Nvidia 7300gs video card

cd/dvd: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4160B on primary master which means dev/hda

IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
HDIO_GETGEO failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device

Here is a sample, I extracted the song with sound juicer to a standard ogg.

(I legally own this song and the attachment here is only a short sample)

Last time I checked on 8.04 cd played fine, I don't know about cd extracting but I think they work smoothly as well. I'll try as soon as I can, thanks for the attention.

gstreamer is not the right sourcepackage, removing.
