That doesn't answer the question, though, does it?  When I installed fedora I 
also couldn't play CDs.  In my case it was necessary to change the phonon 
backend, after which I've had no problems.  I've seen many other people 
complain about having no sound or having lost sound, but in their case they 
have removed pulseaudio expecting it to miraculously cure things.  Sometimes 
it has fallen back to alsa cleanly.  Sometimes it hasn't and they still have 
problems.  If you want to solve a problem, not just whine about it, you have 
to be prepared to do some investigation and give more information so that 
people can help you.
