Default This Is *annoying*!!!!!

i have a old a ISA sound card i got from a old original pentium computer. it has the normal sound out and in, and gameport but on the actual board of the card there is, wait for it..... a IDE plug, the ones you see on your motherboard, the ones you plug hard drives and stuff into. anyone please explain.



Please title your qurestions better and you will probably get a better result

It's probably a slot for an extention of the sound card, i had one of those for a joystick once although you said yours already had a gameport and I don't recall it being exactly the same as an IDE. Maybe you can plug in a cd rom to it and use it as a cd player

It's (usually) for an external (or internal-secondary) device, usually a connector hub or speaker connection.

A more "modern" example of this is Creative's front-panel units.
