as mentioned elsewhere, double check alsamixer and make sure the
channels are not muted. of course, check the obvious -- speakers
turned up etc.

no need to mount the cd to play it. 

I suggest a couple things. 
1) send us the output of 

 lspci -vv | grep -A 10 Audio


 lsmod | grep snd

2) try using a command line player on a wav file and see what
   happens. try this:

 aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/*.wav

this should play 9 files for different surround sound speakers, but
you should get something. if it works, then we can move on to the cd
and other issues. If it doesn't work, then send us the output.
