I have a new pioneer DVD/CD player and it is connected to my mobo with the ATA cable, and then the other connection is power. The manual says to connect its 4-pin sound connector to the mobo as well, but my mobo or drive didnt come with any wire for it? Does that need to be done? Also, I am having a problem with my side/rear sound outputs working on my on-board sound for my mobo, it is the gigabyte ds3 atx, could this be why? Thanks.

There is an option to connect a wire that is 4-pin wide (can have 2 or 4 wires) from the back of the cd player to the sound card or mother board. This cable is made to tranfer audio sound from the cd directly to the sound card and not through the mother board. I don't think that with todays conputers it really makes any difference. If is a audio disk and u hit play on the cd/rom drive (if it has a button) then it will play without the operating system beang bothered.
About the problem with you'r sound card. for starters there is no connection.
Try to download a newer driver or reinstall the what u have.
