I'm lost, don't do what?  confessing or ranting:)

You mean that adding youself to the group cdrom, changing back the
ownership/access permissions, logging in again, didn't result in sound?

Ah, then you'll have to look at the ownership/access permissions on the
device you're really using. ( /dev/hd[bc] are likely candidates)

These groups should exist, but yes, you should add all who need to
have sound and be able to access the cdrom. e.g.:

   # adduser your-user-name sound
   # adduser your-user-name cdrom

argg, top posting, I'm lost again:) You want to get the proper
ownership/access permissions back on your dvd player? e.g.:

  ### let us asume your dvdplayer is on /dev/hdac
  # chown root:cdrom /dev/hdc
  # chmod ug=rw,o= /dev/hdc
