I can't hear music from my PC on the headphones plugged into my CD-ROM drive
Explanation: You are not able to hear music produced by the sound card in your PC through the headphone jack on the front of the CD-ROM drive, even though you can hear CD audio disks on your PC.
Diagnosis: The special cable that is used to connect the CD-ROM drive to the sound card allows you to hear audio CDs on the sound card. However, it only works in that one direction: you cannot use it to have sound card audio play through your CD-ROM's headphone jack.
Recommendation: Use the output on the back of the sound card to listen to sound produced by the sound card.
