Digital CD playback on Linux. Please help!

I don't have the sound cable that connects from the cd-rom drive to the soundcard. On Windows all the cd-players played disks digitally. On linux I get no sound from my soundcard and instead have to rely on the phone jack on the front of my cd-rom drive. Its quite a hassle to keep moving the plug back and forth. Plus my games that can play cd tracks don't function properly because I can either listen to the explosions or the cd tracks, not all at once. Please help!

Assuming you already have that plugin, make sure that it's switched over from analog to digital audio.
