DVDs work because your DVD player expects DVDs to contain DTS and can deal with it. It refuses to believe a CD can contain anything other than redbook and will always attempt to play one as redbook, no matter what you tell it. (MP3 CDs are a different issue -- those are actually CD-ROMs and your player can figure that out. But DTS CDs look exactly like redbook CDs to your player.)
The only way to play those suckers back is to output PCM digital from your CD player and feed it into a DTS-aware receiver. The receiver has no idea it's getting the digital signal from a CD instead of a DVD and happily decodes it.
Nope. My lowly Cyberhome DVD player ($40) plays DTS CDs just fine. Well, at least the one I have.
