Getting music CD's to play without the cable
I am very new to Linux. I am running Mandrake 10 (official) in a dual boot system with XP home. I have a Soundblaster 16 PCI card that works in XP. When I am in Linux I can hear all the system sounds just fine. However when I try and play an audio cd with KsCD in KDE, I don't hear any sound. I did a search before posting this and it was suggested that I needed to hook up the audio cable from the back of my CD player to the MB. However I can't find the audio cable that came with it. I suppose that I could try and buy one, but I was wondering if there was any alternative to this? Any help would be appreciated.
