Let me explain what my system has:
I have an ASUS P4PE motherboard. On the motherboard, I have the following internal audio connectors; 4 Pin CD1, and 4 Pin AUX1. I also have have a Digital Audio Connector (4-1 pin SPDIF1). This is connected to an SPDIF module sitting in an expansion slot space, with an external coax output connection, and an external optical connection. I have a Sony CD-RW Drive, and a Plextor 708-A DVD Drive. Both are internal. The Sony drive has an analog audio output connector (4 Pin). The Plextor also has an analog audio output connector (4 Pin), and also has a digital audio output connector (2 Pin). I understand to connect the Sony CD drive to the 4 Pin CD1 connector on the motherboard, and to connect the Plextor DVD drive to the 4 Pin AUX1 connector, but what would I connect the digital audio output connector to? The only SPDIF connection on the motherboard is the one the SPDIF module is already plugged into, and the module has no other inputs other than the one already connected to the motherboard. There doesn’t appear to be any other SPDIF inputs on the motherboard; but then where does the SPDIF module get it’s signal from? Any help or info would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.
