I belive that is what he said he was connecting to the sound card.
Not all CD-ROM drives jumper the way you have described, most do. If the motherboard has a secondary IDE interface, that is where the CD-ROM should be connected. If it is connected there, it should be set as a Master. Not that it has to be set as a Master, but some of the newer drives will be faster jumpered that way. You may not agree with the last statement. I have benchmarked them and know it to be fact. Larry
