Quoting out of place, from your later message to Andreus:

That's odd: KsCD is working here, now, playing a favourite audio CD.

Caveat: older KDE 3.5.4 and 5-STABLE.  I doubt it's lost features ..

Maybe your soundcard wiring to the player isn't right?  KsCD uses ~0%
CPU so I gather it's just shunting the CD player's audio to the mixer,
ie not actually reading any CD data itself.  Maybe this just doesn't
work with your particular soundcard and/or CD drive ..

Cheers, Ian
