A possible cause is... a missing cable between the DVD player and the 
sound card.
Modern laptops often don't have them as Windows now uses (or abuses) the 
normal bus, but AFAIK linux still requires it.

If you have KDE, you can probably play the sound files on a CD by browsing 
the audio CD and playing the tracks as sound files.

I have exactly the same problem with a Toshiba A40: everything works, but 
no sound from audio CDs.
