I've got that, but its for data CDs, not audio CDs. My options are a 
little different:  user,noauto,nosuid,exec,nodev,ro

What is 29?  In any case, I get:

MPlayer 1.1-4.7.1 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team
192 audio & 400 video codecs

Playing cdda://2.
No stream found to handle url cdda://2

It doesn't matter what the number is.  I guess I need to figure out the 
missing optional dependency.
