beandog,

/dev/svg* ?
I have /dev/sg* but I don't have udev and similar things to do any autoblackmagic to 'help' me.

For those that like the background, /dev/sr* is a block device. Its used for reading and writing data by the block :) which means data inside the the filesystem only.
/dev/sg* is a character device for raw control of the drive. Software can tell the drive to seek anywhere, then get the data back from the corresponding /dev/sr*
The filesystem is not used.

As CD digital audio totally lacks any filesystem, its the only way to play audio CDs.
