I Cant seem to get audio cd's to work. They seem to play but i'm getting no sound.
All other programs, games & stuff have sound, just not audio cd's.

No CD music

by Alpha-Male In reply to No CD music

I gather other sounds work fine?

Has it ever played audio CDs? If not, I know this is a simplistic answer, but I've seen it be a problem more times than I can count...

Make certain you have an audio pass through cable connected securely between your CD-Rom Drive and your sound card. Your CD should have three cables attached: a power cable (big white plug and multiple color wires leading to the power supply), a data cable (usually wide and grey), and the pass through cable (small thin and round. can be any color. Often a small rectangular white or flat black connector).

If you have been able to play audio CDs in the past and it stopped working, check your audio properties in the system tray (particularly look to make sure none of the sliders are all the way down or muted...particularly CD Audio), check under your control panels at the system to see if there are any device conflicts or problems, reinstall the latest drivers for the card, and doublecheck all your cables and connections...

Good Luck, I hope this helps!
