My dvd-rw drive doesn't have that port but I haven't tested audio cd's in it.  It's possible the "does play audio cd's" is about reading the format rather than playing, and I believe cdcontrol tells the drive to play instead of the OS playing it.  You could try another media player to see if it'll play the disc or if you can rip the tracks off.

So you should plug headphones into the front?
