You need to make sure your connection from the back of the CD ROM toi your sound card is connected.  If it is make sure you are connected into the correct connector on you sound card.  That is usally the problem area.
musner is right.  You need the little skinny cable that goes from the CD drive to the sound card (or motherboard if the sound is on it).  
Check if you get music if you plug the speakers in the audio socket on the CD-Rom... manufactureres are always trying to speed up production, I would be surprised, but the unit could always be faulty !

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

You need to use an Audio CD patch cable, which usually comes with the Sound Card.  It connects the CD-ROM to the Sound Card.  It is usually female on both ends and has 4 holes.  Plug some headphones into the front jack of your CD-ROM and see if you hear music, if so, then your CD-ROM is working.  

Gee sounds like what I said.
I did the samething one time and was
ripped apart by others for locking the question.
Let the user who has the problem tell us who was right.
This was the question does not get locked and the person
who answered the question will be able to get the points.


I meant to comment....sorry.  I was simply giving an elaboration that would be easy to understand, with a description of the you read.  I also gave a problem solving solution to see if the CR-ROM was working....that is different...isn't it?
sure.  But also read in the question that regular CD's work fine.
There is a chance of a bad CDRom drive however Regular and Music CD have the same standard formatting base.  So it would probably not work on both CD formats if it is a bad drive.  I did not mean any personal attack on your comment just some advice was all. Rather have a nice advice then a ass ripping like I received the time i accidently answered instead of replied.  Thanks - Mike


I prefer advice over being reamed any day...  :)  Well, I guess you are right, but it is possible that the data functions work, and the sound process of the CD-ROM are not functioning properly, I have had that problem before.
