Ubuntu uses links under /media for removable media, but I can't get 
kaffeine to use /medai/cdrom either.  However, if I set kaffeine to 
use the device itself (/dev/hdb on my system) it plays CD's just fine.

In case you don't know where to set this in kaffeine, look under the 
"settings" menu, "xine engine parameters".  Click on the "Media" icon 
on the left, and then fill in the "audio_cd.device" entry box (top 
entry in the "Beginner Options" tab).  You'll need to know which 
device your CD drive is.
