If you're talking about having the audio from a CD drive playing through a perticular soundcard then it isn't something that you can do in software. Whenever I've lifted the lid and looked inside, there's a dedicated cable from the back of the drive to the soundcard. I haven't yet seen a piece of software that can change that (sorry, sarcasm overload).

Is Windows happy with 2 soundcards? I've never heard of anyone with 2 soundcards

Igor,

That must be what's missing in my machine - 2 sound cards. Maybe if I buy another one it'll cheer up and decide not to crash and lose all my work.

The Neil (with only one Creative card) =;)

I am just a poor mortal with but a lone soundcard...

This question is now going to get filled with everyone in the world telling me that they have two soundcards isn't it (There'll be undiscovered South American tribes announcing that they have 2 soundcards)? Go on, make me feel really inferior

Neil ,
I have two cards , too .
An AWE64 and OPL . Work perfect . I use one for broadcasting and the second for PFL .

Some programs ( see WinAmp ) can play CD without wire .
Just read the cda .

If you read the CDA data directly (wow) then you can handle the data internally and THEN be able send it to the soundcard that you want. God knows how you do that though

Any chance you can mail me the code to access CDA data? I wouldn't mind taking a look at that

I bow by the people capable to reproduce a sound reading sectors of Audio CD. Really they can not choose desired sound card?

Igor;)

PS: usually it must be 220H and 330H or something like this.

Where ? Maybe you Igor can tell us :)

Igor take the points.
I'm tired . I must release mondey a mp3 scheduler and I put stupid question ( about CD ) . But I will use the new ideea with CDA in next version .
I think that is a dead line . I go to sleep ;(

Regards to all ,
Nick

P.S.

Sorry, when you put things like "Just read the.cda" I get kinda excited and assume that you've got this problem cracked.

By the way, if anyone DOES know how to get the CDA data (not necessarily decoded into audio data) (well not real time anyway) then would they mind telling me?
