    You most likely don't have one then, there on your soundcard, usually unless your sound in on the mobo, then it's on the mob.

    Buy another one, in black.

    3 nothing you can do but it didn't come with a blank dvd and im kinda pissed, mostly 2, the color pissed me off what do i do
    We could storm the manufacturing and make them give you a DVDR :gunsmile:

    I wouldnt worry about it.

    Most motherboards these days support digital audio so it should be fine.

    To test without the cord, just put in a music cd (not mp3 an actually music cd) and see if you get sound. If you get sound its all good. If you dont get sound, you have to plug in the cord.

    Look for 2 pins on the mother board that sais something like "cd in" and plug it in their.

    I don't think so.
    My understanding is that some early soundcards didn't get the digital sound signal through the PCI interface and needed to be linked directly with the optical drive.
    This is usually not the case today and the digital out port on your CD player is redundant.
    I could be wrong, but I have yet to connect a CD player using anything more than the IDE cable and sound has never been an issue.

    As for your drive color...
    If you can't return it and get a black one ( obviously the preferred method) then look at this
