Audio CDs Not Playing

I'm having trouble with playing audio CDs; specifically, they won't
play at all. Secondarily, it appears as though, if they would play, I
would need to be root to do so.
My system stats are as follows: <uname -a>:
FreeBSD dutch.freebsd.net 10.0-RELEASE-p7 FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE-p7 #0:
Tue Jul 8 06:37:44 UTC 2014
root <at> amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64
I am issuing the <cdcontrol -f /dev/cd0 play 1> command and the CD
simply will not play, or move in any way. However, if I issue
<cdcontrol /dev/cd0 eject>, the CD will eject; if I issue
<cdcontrol /dev/cd0 info>, I will receive the tracks information, etc.
So it appears as though communication is happening, but the CD will not
play. If I issue these commands as a regular user, I receive a
"permission denied" message; if run as root, simply nothing happens -
no error, nothing. In fact issuing <echo $?> returns 0.
I have read the handbook sections on multimedia and setting up the
sound card, and believe I've done everything by the book. For example,
<pciconf -lv> returns:
hdac0 <at> pci0:0:27:0: class=0x040300 card=0x04201028
chip=0x3a6e8086 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = '82801JD/DO (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller'
class = multimedia
subclass = HDA
