I think KDE autodetects and plays audio CDs. Did you
try it?

There are quite a few of them. If you want a simple
cmd line utility I like cdrdao if u r talking of audio
or VCDS. It can also blank CDs. 

There are any GUI tools like xcdroast, graveman

I think cdrecord is the most used backend. May u shud
read man cdrecord...
