Hi,

   Here is a diagram of how to connect your CD-rom to your Motherboard or to your soundCard (for older computers).  The setup is pretty much the same for all Non-SCSI cd-roms.

3 connectors are needed to plug your cd-rom
1-power cable, ill let you figure that one by yourself.

2-ide cable plugged either as slave (jumper in the back) on the same cable (about 2" wide usually grey with a red dotted line on 1 side)  as your hard disk or as master on another cable. The red dotted line goes beside the power cable connector.

3-a black flat connector on a small cable would link your audio out from the cd-rom to either a black or white connector that goes into cd-rom input on your sound card

I believe the Sony web site has what you need. They offer a faxback service which they state includes installation instructions.

Here's how to get there....

Go to www.sony.com
Open the Quicklink drop down menu and select 'Computing' under the 'Electronics' sub-heading.
Select Support
Select Storage Support
Select Fax Retrieval.

There are instructions there to help you identify what fax you want retrieved.

Good luck.

rigartua,
If the current proposed answer has not solved your problem, please select "reopen question to other experts" from your list of options.

The 31A and 33A use Sony's proprietarty interface. (One is single-speed, the other is 2x)

Does the soundcard have the correct interface connection on it for your drive?

If so, let me know if you still need help to install the CDROM.

Regards,
Ralph

rigartua,
Before I can give you the correct details, please tell me the model number printed on your CDROM.
Is the soundcard cable a flat ribbon type of data cable with a connector on it that is too small for the hard drive?
Regards,
Ralph

rigartua,
That isn't going to help much if yours uses the proprietary Sony interface.
We need to hear from you.

Rmarotta,
 

      At this point, all we know for a fact is that Rigartua has a Sony Cd-Rom.  He is going to have to make the most out of the diagram because Sony doens't provide one.  Unless someone here is willing to create one for him.  :)

dankh,
It'll take a lot more points for color......  :)

Rigartua,
I have the manual for CDU31A Series.  I can scan the page and send it to you.
I'll need an email address if you want it.
Let me know.

It seems they could at least be courteous enough to acknowledge the effort put in by experts trying to solve THEIR problem!
