DVD drive access trouble on Jessie

I have 14.0.3 installed freshly on Jessie on an AMD Cedar machine 18 months 
old. When I try doing anything to access a CD in either of the two DVD 
(includes dmesg tail) shows some sort of audio setup problem seems to be 
repeatedly trying and failing. When KsCD triggers this, it gets hung by the 
problem. Simply logging out of the session takes an excessive length of time, 
and so does attempting to reboot. Holding down CAD produces a long string of 
failed to store sound card state messages instead of rebooting, until well 
over a minute passes. On reboot, journal recovery occurs. /etc/group seems to 
have the required user permission assignments. Aplay works OK on a test .wav 
file, and so does normal startup and shutdown system sounds. How can I tell 
where the fault lies? Could there be a broken dependency? I don't see any 
open bug that seems related.
