sound output may be as simple as running a mixer to unmute and raise volumes...I have some pics for alsamixer in my wiki link

try kmix as its fairly intuitive unlike alsamixer

2) not sure what you mean by this a data cd with movie files? cd?....the install cd?

Smile CD/DVD Rom and Sound card no output

Thanks for your reply
I have now solved the problem
It would seem to be a glitch in the KDE desktop selected at install
I uninstalled Suse Linex 11.1(reformatted hard drive)
Reinstalled selecting Gnome desktop all hardware detected and installed correctly ie Sound card, CD/DVD drive and as a bonus the Web Cam also worked



Hope this will help others
