Hi Nickemo,<P>First thing you should do is to check if there is an audio cable connected from th CD-drive towards the sound card.<BR>Audio cd's are played via the direct audio signal output on the back of the cd-player.<P>Regards,<BR>Data.<BR>

The principle still holds: there should be a cable running from the back of your CD-player to the connector on the motherboard that is reserved for this purpose. Please read your motherboard manual to identify this connector. There are usually two or three clustered to accomodate more that one connector. Anyway, the fact that there is apparantky no cable explains the lack of sound. Get a cable, connect it and you should have sound.
