You could also check that the right device is selected. First, look in /etc/fstab to see what your system calls the cdrom or dvd player. Then while in KsCD, go to the section to Configure KsCD...
In the section CD-ROM Device it should be labeled /dev/dvd or /dev/cdrom or whatever is in the /etc/fstab.

KsCD requires an audio cable between your CDROM drive and the sound card.

The latest version of xmms is capable of digital audio extraction and
does not require an audio cable
