Jhance,
Continuation of my problem on "computer no sound"  reference .. http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=hardgen&qid=20317334

I've purchase an audio CD and CDROM cannot read and play its content. I've check out the CD disk on my home VCD/CD player and it's okay.

CDROM can read and play with sound MP3 CD / VCD without problem after installing the on-board sound driver. So I thought the CDROM may need a audio driver too. Visited the drive manufacturer : LITEON for driver on my model LTN382 ( 40x ) but not successful.

Could you offer some help again.

Thanks
Heng

OK, if you put the audio CD in the drive does it play?  I.e. does the Windows CD player come up?

If not, can you start it yourself and have the CD play?

If it plays, is any sound output from the headphone jack on the drive itself?  If NO, then the drive is bad.

If yes, the problem is in your cable from the drive to the sound board, in the sound board itself, in your Windows MIXER settings, or in your speakers.

Question : Does CDROM needs a audio driver to play audio CD disk ? Currently its runs off from Windows ME

>>>CDROM needs a audio driver to play audio CD disk

No.

If this drive is recognized by your BIOS and works with CDROM disks, but does NOT recognize CD-AUDIO disks, then the drive itself is defective.

Since you say is plays MP3 (which are DATA/CDROM disks) then I must assume that this is a defective drive.  The electronic circuits in the drive for dealing with CD-AUDIO are different than those used for CD-ROM.  So it's conceivable that one could work and the other NOT.

Considering the lost cost of CD drives, I suggest a replacement.  If you have access to one you can borrow for a test, it might make sense to swap it out for a test and see if the other one works OK.
