2 questions which are related:
1) When I put an audio CD in my CD ROM drive, no sound will come out of the speakers. I can hear sound thru the front headphone port OK, but only when I activate a media player, in this case Creative CD. My soundcard is a SB AWE64 on the one ISA slot on my EPoX EP-MVP3G-M mobo, and I can hear MIDI and WAV files thru the speakers OK (the sound card has IRQ 5). I'm pretty sure the audio cable from the drive to the soundcard is OK (is there an easy way to test it?). Also, when I put the CD in the drive, no media player of any kind pops up to start playing the CD--it just spins a bit and then stops. Thus my second question:
2) I have all the Creative icons for my soundcard, including Creative CD. Is there a way to make Creative CD my default player and have it pop up and start playing my audio CD's? Thanks for your help on this.
P.S. I had a program called Musicman Jukebox which would pop up when I inserted an audio CD. I deleted this program and that's when the trouble started .
