I have no idea, but probably not: digital requires only 2 lines. The white header you describe could be meant for hooking up a special, card-specific extender panel. Please tell us what model your soundcard is, we are flying a little blind here.On my sound card right next to the four pin plug I am now ising is a white, four pin but larger than the one I am using now. Would this be the digital plug?
Like I said, doing your own wiring. :| But your idea is something I hadn't thought of. For that matter, Nick could run 1/8 stereo patch cords externally from each CDROM front panel, into an external mixer, then back into the Line-in jack, as you described; all external to the box. With this scheme he could have, what... 3, 4, 5 CD-ROM's, whatever the tower will allow!take a cd rom audio cable, and whack the soundcard end off of it, and solder on a stereo 1/8 connector. plug this into your second cd rom, and then hang the end out of your case.
Thanks for the information, I'll keep that in mind. I have never used one of those cables myself so but it sounded like what Nick was looking for. But since the option in Device Manager will work, that cable is not an issue anyway.bob vila said:heh, i had one of those cables...
NOTE: when both are running, it will still have issues..
