I want to rip CD tracks to MP3 to play on a Sandisk MP3 player. My system is Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty). I installed Sound Juicer and got it to work on one CD. But now it is the only CD that SJ will read. If I load any other CD the track list comes up blank. "Rescan Disk" does nothing.

Is your computer connected to the Internet when you rescan? – user7963 Oct 8 '09 at 11:51
do other applications see audio CDs? do data CDs load ok? just check to eliminate the possibility of a hardware problem. – quack quixote Oct 16 '09 at 15:47

Have you tried to re-install it, use synaptic package manager to re-install it and then install it again, maybe that works?

Try running the command below. Replace /dev/scd0 with the path to your cdrom device.

sound-juicer -d /dev/scd0

This will ensure sound juicer starts up looking at the correct cdrom (if you have more than one).
