What application are you using to play the CD?

If you do not have an audio cable connected between the drive and sound card then you need a player app that uses digital audio extraction like the latest version of xmms.

Try this . . .

As a test . . .

Plug either headphones or your speakers into the jack on your CD drive when it is playing your music CD. Do you get music then?
