    use a headphone for CD Rom

    Hi!
    I have a CD Rom, in the "rear select" section, it has a "5 G G 12" (which supplies the power) and beside it there a CDROM cable wich connects to the computer and at the end it has" R G G L" port.
    Now, my question is , is it possible to hear a music CD by pluging in the head phone to the "R GG L" port? (I mean, just by using "5 GG 12" for power, not the cd rom cable)


    thanks!

    5 G G 12 refers to power connections.
    5v GND GND 12v

    The L G G R is the audio cable that pipes the CD audio to the sound card. I don't know if this can be addapted to headphones or not.
    Interesting proposition....

    Many CDROM drives have a headphone jack on the front. Newer DVD drives don't though...
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    If you have play/pause buttons on the front panel, it should be possible (I've done it in the past, when CDROM players had these buttons...)

    Exactly! It's and old one(nearly 11 years ago!), and it has some keys such as >/>>/|| ...
    in front and also a headphone "soket", BUT I'm not sure if I put JUST the power supplies(i.e. 5 v & 12 v) without CD ROM cable(wich connects it to the PC) I can hear the musics from the head phone?
    Thanks for All of you....

    Usually this port is used to connect to the CDIN connector of the motherboard which will put the audio on the builtin sound card (usually), so there should be line level audio at least on those pins.
