Hello,

I just recently upgraded my 1.2 motherboard to a 2.0 motherboard. I had a technician do the install since I was busy with other things. I have been putting the 2.0 motherboard through it's paces finding and solving little conflicts along the way. I suppose that is to be expected. But, one conflict I had not been able to solve is one where I can play music CDs in my CD player/burner. The read and write works fine. Any ideas?

Oh, I do hope I've placed this problem in the right area :)

:) Is this a new mother board or did you flash the existing mother board BIOS to version 2.0? If it is a new mother board check to be sure the sound cable from the CDRW is connected correctly to the sound card or mother board (if it is an "onboard" sound chip).

Do you get sound if you plug in headphones to the CDRW?

Ok? Now I'm lost! Looking inside and when you say "sound cable" what am I looking for in paticular?

And yes, there is sound from the headset (why I never thought of doing that is beyond me???).

:) Look at the back of the CDRW. There should be a small cable probably grey, might be black, that goes from the CDRW to the sound card or some pins on the mother board marked something like "CD AUDIO". Without this cable (audio cable) you will not get sound from the CDRW.

OK! He left it off. Heading off to buy another sound cable now. (better then traveling 45 minutes to his business over such a low dollar item - I think).

Thanks!
