I need to figure out whether or not you can attach a Tayaka (CD-812) CD-ROM to a Sound Blaster 16 (CT2230).
I have three IDE interface slots on the sound card (Panasonic, Matsumi, and Sony).  Can the Takaya
be attached to one of these interfaces. If so, what kind of drivers do I need.

You will not be able to attach your cdrom to the sound card. The controllers on your sound card are for proprietary cdrom drives, and it appears that you have a atapi compliant drive. You can attach the drive to your motherboards ide or eide controller(this is most likely the same controller your hard drive is attached to).

If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.
