Playing music usually* has nothing to do with mountpoints. Mountpoints are only
needed when you want to use a data CD with a filesystem on it.

I'm not a KDE user, but check which audio device or output plugin the
KDE player is trying to use. If the display works (displays artist and
track info etc.) it is usually a sign that the data is being read OK. So
I would ssupect the output in this case.
* I seem to recall at least one pseudo filesystem driver for Linux that
represented an audio CD as a bunch of WAV files.
