Cannot enable digital CD audio

  alanplayford 19:43 06 Mar 2003

Any ideas on how to get digital audio from my CD / DVD? My Elite K7S5A m/b and Win ME have a master HDD and slave IDE CDRW 8x4x32 on the Primary bus, and a master HDD and slave DVD-ROM on the secondary bus.
Although it used to work, I cannot play or copy music in Win Media Player 9 or other players. >WMP9 shows "Win Media Player encountered an error when reading the CDROM drive in figital mode. Click OK or switch to analog mode.....". The system device properties show both CD and DVD as working OK, but "Digital CD Playback" is greyed-out, with "Enable digital CD audio" tick box already checked.

Do you have the inernal digitial cable from CD/DVD drive to soundcard?

Well internal from the CD drive.

I did have cables connected from both CDROM and DVD to the SB Live! card, but - after having seen another similar problem within here - removed it and tried again. No joy, I'm afraid, Powerless! :o(

OK, I finally managed to fix this, but only by reinstalling Win ME, which is rather drastic! I have no idea why it happened in the first place, unless maybe the automatic update to WMP9 caused a problem?
