Gnome-cd has changed in 2.10.  It now uses cdparanoia as a backend, and
thus requires atapicam, and access to the entire SCSI subsystem (see  I tested it here, and
it works fine for me.  Perhaps you're missing some pointers from this
FAQ.  You might also want to test goobox to see if it works or exhibits
the same problems.

You might also want to check your gstreamer settings, and make sure
you're using a good audio output.  I use esound without any problems,
but some have reported that esound causes scratchy play-back, and prefer
to use the OSS output sink.
