I don't think you need to mount the CD. That would be only for a CD with
some sort of mountable filesystem on it, which an audio CD doesn't have. I
think CD player programs just access the corresponding device in /dev
directly. Also, if you are trying to access the CD from a user account, the
file permissions on the CD device may not allow you to. I had a problem
getting the CD player in the KDE desktop to work from a normal user
account. Everytime I clicked the CD player icon, I got a message saying
that /dev/cd0c was not accessible. I looked at the device permissions for
my SCSI CDROM and found the following
brw-r----- 1 root operator 6, 2 Jan 24 12:10 cd0c
This basically says that anyone who isn't either root or in the operator
group cannot access the device. So I logged in as root and added the name
of my user account to the "operator" entry in /etc/group. When I logged
back in to the user account, the CD player started working.
