Can you connect a digital audio cable?
Yes, I could - and I could also connect an analog audio cable - but that's not the point. Digital audio via the SCSI cable worked in NT4, but doesn't work in XP. I'd like to fix it.
After further research, I suspect the following quote (attributed to Plextor, but not published by them AFAIK) sums up the issue:
These drives do not support DAE in Windows XP. This issue is common to many older CD-ROM drives that do not contain the 'Read CD' command in their firmware. As these drives are either out of production, or nearing the end of production, there is no plan to add this command to the firmware for either drive.
So is it possible to add the 'Read CD' command to CD-ROM firmware?
