no, most programs use the digital/ide cable to rip audio or listen to music. You shouldn't need one. Upgrade to the latest version of windows media player, winamp, etc. Oem drives don't come with cables, and retail drives dont come with audio cables anymore.

there's a line-in jack on your cd drive

if you plug that line into your sound card, then you can plug your speaker/headphone into that line in jack on the cd drive and listen directly from there (notice there's also a volume changer)
