Vkb21 recently posted the following question in the SupportRepublic Forum: “I have a Yamaha duplex sound card and a Samsung 20x CD-ROM drive. When I insert a video CD, I can view the picture as well as hear the sound. But whenever I try to play an audio CD, there is no sound. However, there is sound when I play any MP3 files or WAV files.”
