Question about HP Pavilion a1220n (A1220NED904AA) PC Desktop
Not sure i have the correct connections from cd and dvd to the motherboard or to sound card, dom\n't know right place to connect
It would be helpful if you had some pictures of the back of your CD. There are basically three connections on the back of a CD or DVD. one is the sound cable, which is usually two or three pins, and there is only one way to plug it in. The next cable is data, and that also plugs in one way only. Final cable is power, and that one also goes in one way only.
The problem you may be having is if you have a mismatch between the drive and motherboard. The old standard is IDE/ATA, the new standard is SATA. If the cables are mismatched, you can buy adapters to convert from one standard to the other.
