Amarok is not really a comfortable app to play audio cd's. It does it very 
differently than kscd. 

Amarok, I guess, has to cache the audio cd files first before playing, that 
takes a lot of cpu load as well as time. 

KSCD, on the other hand, is an easy to use app - just drop in the CD and 
specify in the popup to play it. 

For me the problem with KSCD is, that when one does something with konqueror , 
the kscd stops at half a song, and then you have to restart the song from the 
beginning, it does not resume. I presume it is KDED that polls the cd at 
request of Konqueror (humanly speaking :) that stops KSCD play.

This behaviour is very old, I have had it in Hoary and all KDE versions 

However, I would still like to see kscd in future Kubuntu releases.
