i do not think audio drivers are required for cd audio to be played(i have
had a cd playing and then reboot, and it kept playing until the scsi bus
reset)  so chances are if your piping the output from the cdrom to the cd
line in on the soundcard, the volume is all the way down. not the master
volume or the wave output put the cd volume.

check the volume settings again, it may not be muted but it may be all the
way down.  what mixer are you using?

another way to test is run a cable from the headphone jack on the cdrom to
the line in on the soundcard, if you have that kind of cable, in that case
make sure the line IN has sufficient volume.
