can't hear any sound when playing CD's

dietrichwdietrichw Member Posts: 29
When I put in a music CD, the Cd player is mounted and starts playing automatically. The volume is turned up and i can tell that the cd is trying to be played, however no sound is coming out. When I run the sound card detection program, it seems to detect my sound card just fine, and when i play a test I hear it loud and clear.
help please!

thanks

    Did the audio cable is attached from your CD-ROM drive to the sound card?

    No, I have no audio cable attaching my cd-rom to my audio cable.

    There is a cable that comes together with the CDROM that's placed internally in the box... it connects the CD-ROM to the sound card... the jacks on both sides look like a 1/2x1/2 inch square and are thin...

    I had the same problem with my old CDROM

    That cable is called "digital cable/audio cable" that sends analog data to your sound card that digitize the analog sound to your audio output. If your CD inserted is a music CD/CDA file format, just put your audio/speaker cable infront of the CDROM output (if there is any) and use either the control panel of the CDROM or the CD Player of the system to play the CD.
