CD-ROM headphone connector

"Normally", you just turn up the volume control, and use the play buttons on the front of the CD drive.

However, now that many media players use the digital data stream instead of the audio output, the situation has changed.

Close media player, or whatever application on your computer plays CDs.
Try using the front panel buttons to play the CD.
If that does not work, you may need to plug a CD audio cable into the back of the CD drive to enable the built in audio.

If there is an audiocable on the CD drive, make sure that CD Audio In is not muted on the audio mixer control panel.

(Either double-click on the speaker icon on the taskbar, or control panel sound)

Generally this is as simple as plugging in your headphones to the appropriate jack. If, however you are using a new media player geared for digital audio (like MS Windows Media Player 7 +) you may need to "enable analog audio"

Take a look here for the MS knowledgebase article:
