Hi,

Has anyone worked out what to do with the audio lead that comes with DVD/CD
players?

Where does it plug into on the motherboard? I'm blowed if I can see
anywhere appropriate!

TIA.

Forgive my ignorance, but if I play a DVD, where does the sound come from?

It comes through the data cable on any modern machine.

your speakers? :)  Couldn't pass that up. Digital audio, not analog. No
analog cable needed. Enable digital in drive properties.

Generally, there are two audio connections on a CDROM/DVDROM, both of
which plug into your sound card. One is analog, the other digital
(also called s/pdif). The digital cable is usually not included, but
you may have lucked out. If you have an integrated sound chip, then it
'might' connect to the motherboard..don't know.

You are talking ancient history. New systems do not require either cable.

I have always wondered about that, but never took the time to research
it personally. Does anyone know why manuf continue to place connectors
both on sound cards and drives? On my Dim8200, the audio was connected
to the SBLive! when I received it. //bigsley

From the sound card to the DVD drive or from the sound card to the front
panel headphone jack?

Tom, I 'think' it was attached to the DVD..it was 2 1/2 yrs ago. Yes,
there was a wire to the front panel..I have used the jack. Perhaps the
connectors are for playing sound only using non-video players?

Could be. Probably just because it was 2 1/2 years ago.....

According to what I have read about my Dim 8200 the audio cable was for
the analog signal IF your audio/video viewer did not use a direct
digital feed.
