I have a sound blaster card and two cd-rom drives. One is burner the other is just a cd-rom.

I use the cd-rom for playing games and the burner for burning discs.

I have the audio cable from the sound card going to the burner. The burner is the slave drive and the cd-rom is the master.

I was wondering does the audio information go from my cd-rom drive to the audio cables connected to the burner? I am using my sound card with the cd-rom? It says that the sound blaster can be attached to up to two devices but, I have no other cables with it.

Thanks for the help

First of all, are you getting sound (SoundBlaster quality) from your CD ROM drive with your current configuration? If so, you're home free. If, not ... or you're not sure ... pay a visit to your local computer store and pick up a second cable.

WHich sound blaster card to you have? You should have a cable from either the cdrom to the cd-in on the sound card. and a cable from the burner to the Aux in on the sound card. Some also have a TAD in this is for a Telephone Answering Device. For some modems that require the connection to your sound card itself. The sound cable for a cdrom will also work on the cdrw. tehy usually cost like 3 or 4 dollars. Unless you go to Radio Shack Then they are like 6 or 7 dollars

I have a sound blaster audiogy 2 zs. I do get sound from my cd-rom, it sounds fine, but I am not sure if I am getting the quality I sould be.

I would hook the audio cable directly into the cd-rom but it is too short and does not reach. Do they sell them in differently lengths?

thanks

Odd as it may seem yes they do make them different lengths. I do not know if it is by design though. I bought 2 cdrws of the same type once, they both came with different length cables. One was about 19" the other was at least 24"
