Hi
I have just installed stuff, the sound card is an ESS ES1688F. If I put a CD in the drive with .wav files it plays ok. But it won't play (sound) of a normal Music CD?!

Any one know what thats all about?!
Regards

Do you have a cable connected between the back of the CD and the input of the sound card?  Is it wired correctly?

there should be a cable running from the back of the cdrom drive to a cd in connection on the sound card...there are several cd-in connections on that model audio card so you should try to see which one works...

either that or cd audio is muted or turned all the way down.  Check your audio properties for this.

Reminder:
There are several audio controllers within the OS, the sound card, and the various applications, such as Windows Media Player, or WinAmp.

admoller how do you wish to proceed?

1.  Award the questions to one or more participants

2.  Delete the question

3.  Add the question to PAQ for others to be able to get this advice.

As for 1, you were given good advice by several experts regarding the cable from CDROM to soundcard.  99% of the time when music CDs won't play this is the reason.
