As the CDROM drive appears to be using data CDs correctly, it’s likely that there is not much wrong with it. As you are attempting to play music, I would say the problem is more likely the sound card, or connecting cable.
Check the small cable thatshould connect between your CD-ROM drive and the soundcard or motherboard. Also just check the wide IDE data cable from the CD-ROM unit to the motherboard. A cable problem is unlikely but possible.
Get the latest drivers for your sound card, and any specific applications.
If the sound card has a CD player application, try using that and see what happens.
