Connecting the Sound Cable (If Not Already Done)

If you haven’t already done so, it’s a good time to connect the sound cable to your CD (Figure 113 and Figure 114) and to your mainboard if it has built-in sound. If you’re using a PCI sound card, you’ll need to install it before you can connect the sound cable between it and the CD-RW.


Figure 113: Connecting the sound cable to the CD-RW drive

The other end connects to a sound card or to the mainboard. See the discussion at the beginning of this chapter for more information. Here, the thumb is pushing the sound connector into place.

Notice that we’ve removed the ribbon cable for photo clarity. Also see Figure 88 and Figure 89.
