The second one has a picture that shows the audio cable on the back of the drive (see fingers holding the cable on the left side). This connects to the sound card (or motherboard on "onboard" audio). If you have only one cd in audio connection, you may need a Y cable to connect both drives. You can also use the "auxillary" input if your soundcard or motherboard has one.

Check in the Device Manager to see if the sound adapter is listed:
Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager button
There should be no question mark or exclamation mark by the entry for "Sound, video and game controllers". Perhaps the installer of your motherboard forgot to load the driver for the audio adapter. Actually, there should be no '?' or '!' on any items. You should have gotten a driver disc for your new motherboard. If need be install/reinstall the sound adapter driver.

First, the very basic: Is the speaker system plugged into the green colored jack on the back of your computer, and, is the speaker system turned on and the volume set to higher than the minimum ?
Yes! I've tried out all the stuff I could think of. I have system sounds, AOL sounds and all my games have sound, it's just the 2 drives that have no sound. I'll try out the rest of your message when I get home. Thanks!

Here's something else to check: Go into Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager button and expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry. For each of the drives right-click on it and select Properties. Click the Properties tab. Make sure that the checkbox "Enable Digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device" is checked.
I tried the above, but I don't have a "Enable Digital CD...." checkbox.
