Some of the latest systems have the connector for the front panel audio in the AZALEA layout, while the cable is llabeled for the AC97 sound layout
How do i connect it?
Is there a layout description of it?

Here the details :

                   AZALEA                                       AC 97
 
Sense 2 Return    o    o     Port 2 L            Mic 2            o    o     A Gnd

From what I can find out nobus it looks like you possibly have the Dell Dimension 8400 in which the Azalea is included. At this link you will find a systems manual for the Dell Dimension 8400 which will most likely include the manual for the motherboard http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8400/en/index.htm#online_documentation

Let me know if this helps.

It should be spelled 'Azalia', which will help with Google searches.

On p2-30 of http://www.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5GD1/e1745_p5gd1.pdf, there is a diagram of this header, which says you connect it to a module on the front panel.  It sounds to me that the same cable can be used for both, and the only difference is the module it plugs into.

But my question still stands : how do i connect the following wires from the front panel to the connector on the motherboard:

                   AZALIA                                    
Sense 2 Return    o    o     Port 2 L          
                               o    Sense Send      
Sense 1 Return    o    o    Port 2 R          
Presence             o    o    Port 1 R                
Gnd                     o    o    Port 1 L        


List of wires :

Have you tried the one-for-one mapping in the Asus manual, ie, use the same pins for AC97?

What do you mean? the corresponding pins of the AC97 connector?

Yes - the manual did not make a distinction between connecting it to an Azalia front end or an AC97 fron end.  This makes me think that it operates using autosense.

Ok, I'll try that, although there is a setting in the bios to change over from one to the other

Callandor, that did not work.

Any other ideas?

That's too bad - which motherboard do you have?  Maybe the manual has a hint in there.
