Can I connect an external USB CD Player to my Raspberry Pi, and play a CD with Moode Audio?

Thanks in advance

moOde does not support CD playback but I recall other users having installed the packages to do this. Try searching the Forum.

In the FAQ and Guides section I posted instructions on using abcde to automatically rip a CD when you insert it and add the resulting audio files to the mpd library. That works well for me, because I plan to gradually add all my CDs to my moode library and then put them away in the loft.

If you just want to put a CD in and play it without ripping, I haven't done that but mpd can handle CDDA audio (not sure if this depends on compile time options and if so whether they are enabled in moode): there is some discussion of someone having achieved something similar with volumio here https://www.bing.com/search?q=mpd+cd+pla...ersationid=#
Judging by that thread the difficulty they encountered was automounting the CD, you could have a look at my guide which includes a udev rule to match audio CD insertion which you could modify to automount the CD and update mpd with the tracks.

In the middle of a road trip around New England. It’s raining this morning here in Southwest Harbor ME so I’m using up my cellphone data plan to catch up on forum posts over a mug of coffee.

CD playback is doable in moOde. Just playing tracks is the easy bit. Think of it as an old standalone CD player—stop/play and display “track 1, track 2, etc.”, and no cover art. A while back a fellow named Ashley Cox sent Tim some scripts for playback and for ripping (this latter much like aknabbaugh’s work). I tweaked the playback script a bit and we emailed back and forth but then both of us got distracted with more pressing issues.

I can write up what we did and post it late next week.

Looking forward to your post, or can you share the current code?

At a glance, your just-posted HowTo is a very similar approach to what we were doing. I'll make any further comment there.
