The instructions to installing my Dual CD RW/DVD RW drive say to connect the
audio cable if necessary. I am running Windows XP Professional with
motherboard built in sound--Soundstorm.

Do I need to attach the audio cable from the drive to my motherboard? At
this point XP seems to be working OK, and I can play CD's etc, I have not
yet loading the DVD burning software. My drive says that it is using
digital audio with the drive.

No you don't need the analog audio cable.

I am a bit confused on the subject. I just installed a new gigabyte motherboard. I am running WIN XP PRO also. I have a CD-ROM(master)running on IDE, a DVD/Cd-R-RW Burner ROM on SATA. the manual for the board says to use a 4 pin cable to connect from the analog 4 pin connection of CD-ROM/DVD to the Audio-In header header on the motherboard.
I don't have the digital cable,, but when I play CD's on the CD-ROM I get music coming out of the speakers. I feel like I am in a catch 22 situation.what should I do?
