Normally cdplay just tells the drive to act as an audio player,
the drive needs to be connected (some cable) to some mixer input
and the mixer has to be configured to send that input to the speakers.
With a laptop the cabling is probably given, leaving the mixer
configuration. Check for,

digital mode should work like cdparanoia but maybe not as good.
I also get the failed scsi commands (on a Thinkpad).

The ioctl probably doesn't check for write permission.
