You can't mount audio CD's, you can only play them.

And for bonus points, the reason you can't mount audio CDs is because they have no filesystem to speak of, and that's what you mount .. filesystems. (extra credit: techincally, someone out there did make some jacked up CDfs module that no one uses, but it did make it possible to "mount" audio CDs)

And another technical point: KDE usually comes with a util called an CD-IOSlave that allows you to access audio CDs as if they contained a filesystem. I've not used it in a while, but I remember that you could point your file manager (Konqueror) to cd:// and you would be presented with several subdirs, wav mp3 ogg, etc. Pretty cool idea, but doesn't help when thinking about what mounting is all about.
