Question help >.<

I just bought a DVD burner and on the back there are two connectors that i don't know what to do with called the Digital audio connector and the Analog audio connector. It didn't come with any other cables to put in there. Do i need these cables? Where can i get these cables?

Heres a pic. of the DVD burner.

(The connectors are on the left)

This is also my first build >.<

Thx

as said, you don't actually need this unless you intend to use the actual play button on the front of the CD drive, (assuming that it even has a play button).

the cable should have come with the main board or sound card, basically it's an onboard line in that takes the audio data from the CD straight to the sound card without going through the IDE bus, but as I just said, this only matters if you're using the CD drive to play the CD rather than using software to read decode and play music.

The cord is intended to play your Music CDs without the hassle of opening a program.
