Why is there delayed audio from playing music CDs

While playing audio CD via my CD drive as I am using the
CD drive's own audio connectors but I notice I get a sort
of echo of the sound from the speakers usually about 1 or
2 seconds AFTER the sound from the CD has played

I muted the CD and found that the music is still coming via
the "wave" input on my volume controls.   The only explanation
I can find for this is that maybe the computer is picking the
audio from somewhere else. The only change I made was do use
an audio cable from my digital TV card to the aux connector
on the sound card and my CD goes to the CD connector on the
sound card too.........

The only other difference is that I now is that the DVD rom
is the slave off the HDD cable. The other two drives are on
a separate IDE cable with no audio cable used....

If you have XP, you do not need any audio connections from the optical
drives - it all comes down the 40 wire cable.

I do know this.....

But I prefer the sound via the audio connector as it is a lot
louder then the sound via the 40 way cable....... Hence my
asking why I am getting a second lot of audio despite not
wanting it

**** Not while ever you agree with drones who "prefer the sound--as it is a
lot louder" and use lower case for my name.
After all, the "it is a lot louder" nonsensical statement was posted on  a
supposedly technical newsgroup and that is what I originally commented upon
.Accordingly,I would have thought you could have commented on the original
stupid comment rather than anonyomously slagging off at me for having
commented!!!!!!!!!

Or do you prefer the sound---as it is a lot louder??

Moronic statement to go to war on,don't you think???Especially for someone
of your obvious computer and electronic talents.It would do your public
reputation and credibility no end of good should you choose to adopt a
"scientific" approach to such silly statements as "prefer the sound-- as it
is much louder"

Next?

I never said I agree with the OP.

As usual, you were out having a dig at anyone that says anything _YOU_
think is stupid, whether it is or not. Pehaps you could of provided
the OP with some assistance and question his "Stupid" comment, but it
seems you prefer to mark smart arse comments. In fact, I am yet to see
you provide some useful input to this group.

I think any idiot could realise that the OP is attempting to say that
you can get more volume if you use the CD players analogue output
direct to the sound card, and there is a valid reason for this if you
are using Windows media player or various other media players.

I am going to war on your moronic reply, not the OP's statement. My
'obvious computer and electronic talents' have taught me to read and
analyse what people write and say, and to realise if they have made a
mistake. You on the other hand seem to jump straight onto people and
attack. Have you never made a mistake in your life before???

Re: Why is there delayed audio from playing music CDs


Possibly it is getting both signals - one delayed. Do you have the on board
sound turned off in BIOS ?

Don't use the PC for anything except checking tracks to rip etc. so quality
etc. is not an issue but AFA volume goes, it can be too loud to stay around
with $60 speakers ( 2 + woofer thing)

Don't own a sound card later than ISA so can't check.

Both signals???????? Why and howcome?

I don't have a soundcard but am using the onboard audio
as my soundcard for games, dvd and other things.

I use my PC  a lot for ripping songs ..

Ah the good old ISA bus.   Have a Sound Blaster 16 in the
drawer here ..  Ah and a VESA local bus video card. Ah
those were the days.

Actually I also have a very good FM tuner card but that
is also ISA and now has no value.......

Did these things ever come out in PCI?

Sorry, my misunderstnading - I thought you had a card when you must have
meant the analogue inputs to the AC97 or whatever. But, no idea what happens
when you feed two identical inputs into the same sound processor

Found a VESA vid card in the shed - it was so long I doubt it would fit in a
modern case.

Might fit in the bin though.

If this problem happens with Windows Media Player, make the
following change:

Open Tools -> Options Menu.

Select "Devices" tab.

Double click on your CD drive.

On the "Audio" tab set playback to "Analog".

HI Mike

That's the first thing I did.......
but when you mute the CD you
still get a faint version of the CD
via "Wave" input........

Do you mean when you check the box labeled "Mute"
on the CD channel of the Windows mixer?

If so, there is a design problem with the sound system.
(on-board or sound card)

This is not uncommon and the only thing you can do is
install a better sound card.

Yes that is exactly what I mean.

But I never had this problem prior to buying either my
DVD burner or TV tuner card.....  I fear one or the other
has screwed up the internal hardware or done something
messy with the software  ....

I have my OEM windows now so hopefully a clean install
will fix stuff
