  1. #1

    cd rom

    I have just built a shuttle and installed Mandrake 10 on it .
    If I olay a game on it I get Sound but if I put a CD in - no sound.
    On inserting a Cd it automatically starts to play it but no sound, have I missed something or not configured somethihg, any help appreciated.

    what desktop are you using? KDE? Gnome?
    Could be the audio settings, maybe cd muted or something like that?
    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P

    You should have a cable running from the back of the CD ROM drive to your soundcard as well as the IDE cable and power cable. If the sound cable isn't there, the CD ROM may not play music files.

    You can operate without that cable, though that is the easy way. Check your alsamixer settings. make sure that 'cd' and 'analog mix' are both maxed.

    Have checked all the sound settings, these are OK so off with the cover and in with the audio cable

    It was that easy, the problem was no audio cable.
    Too simple to be obvious ;D
