03-09-2007, 02:47 PM
Hey guys, i'm trying to figure out how to play audio CD's. I've got a nice sound card, and 2 working CDROM drives. i've got the digital out going to the repulse card... *sigh* Can anyone give me a clue as to how this should work?

Make sure you've got the cd audio out connected to your sound card. Use the mixer software that came with your card to make sure that the cd audio isn't muted or too low. Use a cd player program to play your audio cd. Make sure that the cd player program is using the right device driver and unit number. How you select this differs with each program. If you're using SCSI drives the standard cd player from OS3.9 might not work; at least it doesn't with my SCSI drive. I use OptyCDPlayer and that works fine!

are you using SCSI? As I recall the CD player in OS3.9 has a problem with the GURU-ROM if you are using an A2091 card or a GVP card.
Also, not all of the CD Players on Aminet worked for me, so try different ones.
Are you configuring the CD player correctly to recognise your IDE or SCSI device?
I use a little CD player from Aminet to play my CD through my Repulse card. I think it's called TinyCD or something.
Also, make sure the input you are using on the Repulse card is not muted in the Repulse PREFs.
Oh....and lastly, make sure you are monitoring the audio coming out of the Repulse, and not out of the Paula (i.e. the Amiga's L & R audio sockets). The CD doesn't play through the Paula.
