Open KSCD, go to Extra -> Configure KsCD. Under CD-ROM Device, you need 
to check "use direct digital playback". That was enabled by default in 
the old kaffeine / KDE3 stuff, which made it work without the small 
audio cable. I'm not sure if it works in KDE4 though, haven't played 
with it personally :)
