Unrecognized connector on the MOBO

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....

  1. 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.
  2. i have the cable
    and i have a DVD rom IDE with this connector

    plus i have onboard conector & on my pci audio card
  3. 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.
  4. No longer in use anymore, since everyone uses digital playback now.
