yes, if you make or buy a cable from the second cd device to the line-in of your audio card.

If you don't want to use the line-in and don't play 2 audio cd's at once you can combine the signals from the cd devices.  Just put in resistors of 10k ohm in each signal line as it comes from the cd, and then put them together on the cd-in of the audio card.

Okay, but prehaps I should mention that I'm already using the line-in for my TV card.

Well in that case you should make an Y cable for 2 cd players to 1 sound card cd input.  I hope this looks ok :

Make this twice, once of Left and once for Right channel.
