if you find you can't play audio cd's as a normal user, don't worry - go to terminal and type:

su root
(enter password)
chmod 444 /dev/cdrom <--- or whatever your cdrom dev is called

this will allow normal users read-only access, which will let ksCD or whatever find the media

(just fixed this myself )
