Audio CDs without analog cable

Is there a software application that plays audio cds without using the cable that connects the analog output of the cd drive to the sound card? I just installed linux on one of my old windows box, and the cdrom drive does not have that cable. However, the Windows OS can play music without that cable. So I am assuming that there is an application written for linux that can do the same thing . Thanks in advanced for the help, and I hope everyone had a great holiday!


PS On the new computer, I am running mandrake 10 with KDE.

I believe you'll need xmms version 1.2.10 or newer and you'll need to choose digital audio extraction within the program.
good luck.
