    Default Conecting 2 cds to sound card

    Does anybody know if there is a cable that would allow me to connect both a cdrom and cdrw to a soundcard (ie a splitter cable)? If not could I do it myself without damaging any of the equipment?

    On most soundcards there is more than one connector anyway, usually marked as AUX, which acts the same as the CD in. If you've got a fairly new soundcard that uses digital audio, you don't need the cable under most circumstances anyway, you just need to set, say, Media Player to extract digitally.

    Thanks for the advice guys this problem is now sorted by using media player instead of AOL (why does anybody use AOL?) and plugging the speaker leads into the right holes for the guy!!!
