    The earphone jack on the front of the TDK 311040 CD drive/burner will not play. My speakers work just fine, so I do not understand TDK tech help telling me to hook up the sound card cable to the drive. They also said it will only work for audio CDs which is what I was trying to play.
    Anybody got a suggestion?

    It has little to do with the audio cable or the ide cable. Try it with different headphones, adjust the volume control, and use the play button on the front of the cd-drive not a software player like winamp. Some software players will play the cd with digital playback and therefore you won't get any sound out of the front jack.
