CD-Audio with wine from laptop's internal drive

I'm currently experiencing a problem with CD-Audio,
and maybe it's no longer possible, but I'd like to ask:

I have a game running under wine which uses the CD's
audio tracks for music. I can hear the drive spin up
and down (upon changing tracks), but there is nothing
on the headphones, while the game's own sound (as well
as music in the cutscenes) is playing. If I play the
CD in a regular CD player, the music is there.

In the FreeBSD mixer, I have the following controls:
vol, pcm, speaker, line, mic, mix, rec, ogain, and
monitor. None of them seems to be connected to CD audio
of any kind.

The hardware in question is a Lenovo ThinkPad R61i with
the build-in optical unit.

Am I expecting something to work that won't work with
modern (haha, 10 years old laptop!) hardware?
