Alright thanks, I have been working on an old HP to try and get it running to put in Linux. It had a pretty new DVD drive in it A sony I think. So I took it out and added another drive to my pc. I am tried now, think I will go eat.

Well, I think that you need a plug that's goes to the DVD to the sound card.
