It sounds as though you are missing a SPDIF cable that goes from the small conection socket on the back of your cdrom drive to either your motherboard (if you have on board sound)or your sound card (check your mobo manual or take a look inside your pc)hope this helps.

what operating system are you using, have you loaded some new software, did it work then did you do something and now it doesn`t, ie fit new drive, take the lid off your pc, etc
