Hearing CDs on Earphones from CD drive

  Prewch 18:08 25 Oct 2007

Can anyone remind me of how to get playback to earphones from an audio CD when the earphone are plugged into the earphone socket of the CD drive?

I can get output to the speakers ok and the volume control panel does not have anything muted.

Ta in advance for any ideas.

You will need to turn up the volume control on the CD drive.

do you have the correct type plug in use?

Yes its a standard 2.5mm stereo jack which works fine on all my other audio equipment. Maybe its a broken wire to the jack socket on the CR drive.

Make sure there's only the IDE and power cable into the back of the drive. If there's a separate sound cable, remove it.

The more I think about I'm leaning towards a broken wire because it used to work OK.

But thanks for all the suggestions.
