Audio CD Configuration Problem

After I was able to solve a sound configuration problem with my SB AWE 64 by your help another strange thing has happened  making me very upset. In the Windows volume controle and the Creative Mixer the balance controlers for audio CDs behave like volume controlers. The right channel is dead so changing the belance to the right is like turning off the music. Of course it's not much fun to listen to audio CDs in mono and the curious thing about it making me feel that I won't solve the problem without your help is that the balance for midi and wave is absolutely ok and provides good stereo. Therefore and as I don't get any error message I have no idea where to locate the error.
After fooling arround for an hour with the creative mixer and the Windows volume controle, reinstalling all available driver upgrades from Creative (one more time), also reinstalling the Win95 cd-player and DirectX 5.2, checking the auto start function... I'm quite a lot frustrated. Help please!

Thank You very much

Hi dzwart!

Thank you very much for your tip. When I opened the computer I found that my CD-Rom drive was properly connected to my sound board. But I also detected something else and that helped me to solve the problem - thanks you! I also did connect my CD-Rom Writer with my sound card because it can be used as normal CD-Rom drive, too. This connection was obviously not correct. After I had disconnected my sound board from the CD Writer I had back my stereo. I still wonder about it because I can remember that after the installation of the CD writer I was even able to play audio CDs on both drives. Of course that's not necessary and I'm very content now. Please send something titled as answer to get your points!

Best regards!

Stephan

Have you checked if your direct CD audio cable (connected to your sound board)
is properly connected?
Good luck

Hi Stephan,

Glad I could be of help, although I really didn't give you an answer did I?
This is the first time I'm using this site so I'm not really sure, but I suppose sending an
answer allows me to get points, is that it?
Enjoy your music,

David
