Are you saying you want to use the optical out feature?
simple way would be to just use an adapter and then a standard optical cable. http://www.amazon.com/Toslink-To-Optical-Mini-Adapter/dp/B0002MQGRM

another option is

How do I connect my iMac 27" i7


You can buy an optional cable that you can plug into the mini-DVI or mini-displayport port at the back of your iMac.see example picture on: http://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/products/new/570842.jpgFirst you need to be sure to know exact if you have a mini-DVI or mini-displayport. The connectors are different and depend on how old your iMac is. Than you can buy the connector that fits your Mac. The you only need to check the connections on your TV. HDMI or DVI will give the best image quality. VGA is older and will result in a lower image quality. Last, you need to buy a cable between the adapter and your TV.

See video mac alu 24" Someone


Every time I've seen this it has been a motherboard replacement; there is a very slight chance it is the cable but since it also seems to power off I'd think the motherboard is most likely.
Sorry to give you the news. Ed

What do I need to run video and audio from my Imac desktop to my home theater system. I have a variety of inputs on the receiver that I can use.


The easiest option is to get an Apple TV unit. This will let you watch movies and slide shows on your TV and feed audio into your system.
Alternatively get a video-out adaptor from the apple store and the appropriate cables and connect it up that way.

Install an Airport card in a G4 Tower



There are six models of Power Mac G4 computers: AGP Graphics, PCI Graphics, Gigabit Ethernet, Digital Audio, QuickSilver, and QuickSilver 2002. You cannot install an AirPort card in the Power Mac G4 (PCI Graphics); the rest accept original version 1 Apple Airport cards. The card is simply inserted through an opening in the PCI card guide and seats itself into a socket on the logic board. Then you attach the loose antenna cable to the hole on the end of the Airport Card. You're done.

EMac G4 won't boot-up after increasing memroy


All RAM chips are not equal, you may have to use a specific manufacturer. Put your old RAM chip in and see if it boots. If it does, then you need compatible RAM chips

How do i hook up polk audio speakers to the imac when the speakers have ablack and red hookup and the computer has a single hole for audio?


Your speakers need amplification. Otherwise you will not be able to hear anything, even at full volume. Once you have an amplifier, you can buy a 1/8 inch stereo plug to RCA cable (1/8" to RCA) from the computer to the amplifier. You'd then use regular speaker wire between the amp & the speakers.

Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5 sound output


This is just how it works. The headphone jack on Macs is dual-purpose. If you plug in a mini-Toslink cable (like you have) it automatically sends the sound through that & increases the computer's volume to maximum. When you unplug the Toslink, the laser will still shine for a brief moment (but then it does go off). So, there is no way to keep the Toslink plugged-in AND utilize the built-in audio at the same time.

Imac-samson-gtrack mic compatability


From the Samson Audio website...

"Ideal for the traveling musician or the project studio, the G-Track ships with a desktop mic stand, swivel stand mount, USB cable and all the cables needed to connect any musical instrument with a standard 1/4" or RCA output. The G-Track ships with Cakewalk's Sonar LE and works brilliantly with Apple's GarageBand."

If it states that it works with GarageBand, I would say that it would work on a mac.

Sound Audio card?


Macs don't generally use a replaceable sound card in a slot like PCs. Instead they usually have sound capability built into the main board.
Which model of Mac do have and what model of CD player did you put in it?
Can you hear sound from sources other than the CD player - such as iTunes, internet, system alerts, etc?
As I recall, one CD drive I upgraded on an older Mac did require a light wire harness for the audio output. None of the DVD drives I have replaced recently have needed this.
Did you, personally, remove the old drive? If needed for the new drive, I'm guessing the old drive would have had an audio cable too.
