Connecting CD and DVD to soundcard

By thefelts ·
I have a Sound Blaster 16 and I would like to connect both my cd and dvd to the soundcard. The soundcard has two input ports. I have connected the dvd to slot 2 and the cd to slot 1. But I am only getting sound from the DVD. Is there any settingI need to change? Any suggestions?

Connecting CD and DVD to soundcard

From what I have found an SB16 does not provide any ability for video transfer. Not knowing the type of machine that you are working with I would suggest connecting the DVD to the secondary IDE port on the motherboard (or HDD controller card for older machines). Make sure the settings on the DVD are correctly configured for either pimary or slave depending on your setup.
