Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you enabled "digital audio" in your sound system? (Often the default is "analog," which requires the analog wire connection from your CD drive to your audio card. [It's the three-wire, small plug connector.] Most audio system will only accept one analog input connection.
If you do have digital audio enabled, have you told your sound system that you have two CD drives? (How that is done depends on the system you're using.)
I suspect that your sound system has defaulted to looking only at /dev/cdrom. (Note that CD playback is normally done directly from the device since audio CDs don't contain any file system that can be mounted.)
Bottom line: Read the manual for your audio playback system to see how you can set it to access more than one device.
