03:54 am - last one, i promise
ok, here is my cd issue as it stands: the cd drive, played thru winamp, skips like fuck. the cd drive, played thru dbpoweramp, skips but somewhat less. the cdrw, played thru winamp, is perfect. dbpoweramp does not detect cds in that drive. music ripped from the cd drive is perfect. the cd drive is connected to the soundcard with an audio cable, the cdrw is not.

i am at a loss.
np: Toadies - Rubberneck - 06 - Away

Its probably playing the music digitally through the IDE chain. Some players will do that to supported drives.

There's no way you'll be able to check in the software or bios:
Count the IDE chains for number of IDE connectors (2? 4?). You could have a pair of them, each able to have 4 connectors. Check which drive (harddrives/CDROM players) is on which chain. If there are 2 drives on one chain check the master/slave settings of each IDE device.

keep in mind i have no idea what i'm doing inside a computer. IDE is the big flat thing with the long plastic connecty bits spaced out on it, yes?
i have no idea how to set master/slave
