Hi guys...
My question is:

1. I would like to know about whats the different about two-pin digital audio output terminal and four-pin sound output terminal that we can find it at the back of our cd-rom drive.

2. Is the sound quality will feel better if i using the four-pin sound output terminal compare with the two-pin digital audio terminal?

3. Which terminal will you recomment me to use if i want to connect my dvd drive to my Creative sound card, two-pin or four-pin?

Hope to hear from you soon.

1 )
two-pin digital : digital output  ... coded sound ... you need a peripheral/card with digital input ...

four-pin : analog outputs ... R/L + 2 GND ...

2 ) it's like a CD player (hifi) with anolog output and one optical output ...
It's depend if you have an amplificator with a digital input ...

3 ) If you have a digital input on your sound card use this input ...  

four pin connector : only stereo ...
two pins connector : could be "5.1"  if you have a sound decoder on your sound card ...
