Hi!
The old way to play CD was to connect an audio cable directly from the CD drive to the soundcard, this was handled in a separate channel of the mixer : CD (instead of Wave/DirectX).

Winamp and Windows CD Player still use this kind of reading, so you must check :
- The presence of the cable, and if its plugged in the CD internal input of the soundcard.
- That the CD channel is not muted in your volume control.

A more modern way is to use digital reading, if your drive can handle it properly. Sometimes people experience problems with this kind of reading.
Winamp in_CD_Reader plugin (see the plugins section), Windows Media Player 7, and KJoföl2000 perform it, then the CD is played as well as MP3s and wavs.

Hoping it helps
