CD audio will play for the simple reason that the CD audio system is controlled by the drive. If you unplug all the data cables from the drive, plug in some headphones and play a CD, it'll play.

The interrupt 24 suggests a failure to identify the presence of a CDROM in the drive. This could be a faulty cable, usage of recorded CDs in a drive that doesn't support them (I have seen a few), or a software setting problem (IRQ or DMA).

What controller does the CDROM use (sound card, SCSI, IDE)?
