I have found a solution to this problem.
I'm using Mandriva 2006.0 Free Edition and have had the same problem with audio-cd's.

Here is what I have found :

The reason you get a device permission error is the KsCD is trying to play the CD digitally through the system... it reads the audio raw and plays with the selected sound driver. Well CD-Roms have their own player built in... which as long as you have the wire from the cdrom drive hooked up to the sound card (which nearly ever computer does)... then you CAN play this way.

Open KsCD player and ignore the error message. Goto "Extras" then "Configure CD Player" ... chose /dev/cdrom as your device and !DESELECT! "Use direct digital playback".

As soon as the direct digital is deselected your CD player will work. It will simply play the CD by the drive's built in playing ability.

I am having a close problem. I took out totem, because it's pretty bad software anyways and isn't good for much. My CDs will play in my CD-RW drive only, but not the faster DVD drive. The CD-RW drive will play it for a few secs, then freezes up.

dmesg tells me

ATAPI device hdc:
Error: Medium error -- (Sense key=0x03)
(reserved error code) -- (asc=0x15, ascq=0x00)
The failed "Read CD" packet command was:
"be 00 00 00 a0 8c 00 00 01 f8 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
hdc: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: packet command error: error=0x40 { LastFailedSense=0x04 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
ATAPI device hdc:
