I think I can take a guess at what is wrong. Is your computer new? Take a look inside it if possible, and see if there is a cable running from the CD drive to the sound card (or motherboard). It should be thin and small, and have a small white plug on each end.

If you don't have one, then probably this machine is set to take advantage of a windows "feature" by which CD audio is routed via the CPU using direct extraction. Unfortunately when computer manufacturers started shipping machines set up in this way , it sort of took us by surprise. Linux CD Players generally don't support that configuration very well yet.

Those are the user/groupmasks that the files will be made available with, in octal. It translates to

-r-x--x--x

ie you can read and execute the files, but not write them.
