The debian kernel-images that use initrd are very modularized. To get
your cdrom recognized you will need to load modules sr_mod and cdrom.

For sound load module soundcore and a driver module for your sound
card or chipset.

Try "apt update" or dselect update" again. If that doesn't help, post
your /etc/apt/sources.list.
