Default CD-ROM Audio

I have two CD-ROM drives connected together using the grey ribbon cable to the Secondary IDE. I want to be sure that when I finally finish the computer that sound from both CD-ROM's will work. I've connected the audio cable from the first CD-ROM onto the CD Audio to the motherboard. I only have one CD audio to the motherboard however, the motherboard also has an AUX in to the motherboard that uses the same 4 pin setup as the CD audio in. Should I plug the other CD-ROM audio connector into the additional AUX 4-pin input, or will the audio on the second CD-ROM work... maybe because the two CD-ROM's are connected together by the ribbon cable?

You can try the AUX and see if it works, the ribbon cable will have nothing to do with audio. If the aux doesn't work you may have to just deal with audio from one cd-rom.
