    Confused, being that you have speakers your sound must be working in windows but not from the cdrom. That's my guess anyway. There needs to be a cable from the cdrom audio out that connects to the soundcard, or if on board sound, to the motherboard. To check and see if the cdrom is suppling sound plug some headphones into the jack on the front of the cdrom and see if you can hear the sound, if you can, then the audio cable must not be installed.,
