Missing audio connection cable possible, use xmms to play the audio CD
after making sure xmms is configured to play audio CD's digitally.
Muted or low volume level for audio CD playback, check and adjust.

No it does not, Windows plays the audio CD digitally (no audio cable
required) while the default for many Linux CD playing apps is analog
(audio cable required).
