hi guys

i have replace my system case

i found some cables like the "CD_IN" which i dont really understand does?

in my mobo manul they said connect the "cable to the optical drive", but they dont explain what it does.

indeed i have i connector for it in my old IDE drive , but not in my SATA drive,..

and i have the connector on my exeternal PCI audio card,......

i think it got something with helping old drives like IDE transmit music into th system but not sure....

If you don't have a CD_IN cable, then you never needed it. They were required for older CD-ROM drives without digital playback.

It connect from your DVD drive or CD drive to your sound card.

Its making your cd drive act like a CD player, you can play the audio CD without using any application, by inserting the audio CD.

No longer in use anymore, since everyone uses digital playback now.
