As I understand it Kscd is a traditional cd player application that
just controls the CD drive as if it were an ordinary audio cd player.
The audio is fed directly to the sound card or out though the drive's
headphone socket, Kscd just tells it to play. If it has  a problem
reading the disk it will stop like any normal CD player.

You may find the more modern players  like xmms or amorok, which
can bypass the drive's audio electronics and read the data off the disk,
a bit more robust. Ultimately you may need a newer drive or cleaner
disks though.
