You can't mount audio cds, they don't have a filesystem. And you don't need to to play them. Just open up your favorite cd playing app after inserting the audio cd and you should be good to go.

That process is called "ripping", i.e. taking audio cd files and creating digital files from them capable of being stored on your hard drive. If you want a compressed format, you rip to mp3 typically, if you want uncompressed you typically rip to wav. In gnome the best ripping tool is a program called the grip; it will rip an audio cd to almost any format you can think of if you have the right plugins.
