Sony 16X DVD Rom - no Audio in XP ???

Help !!

I was just given this unit from my brothers machine.

It is a Sony 16x DVD Rom model 1621 - it is manufactured in January 2002, so it is relatively "old".

It is running the 1.6 firmware.

I run WinXP Pro.

DVD video is perfect - I use Power DVD 5


I have no audio - it appears NOT to be transmitting the audio through the IDE cable [ as XP is supposed to do - and does - with my other, newer Sony 52X CD Rom ]

=> Can any please help / advise ?

=> Is it a firmware glitch OR does the 1621 simply not transmit its audio via the IDE cable.

Many thx,

go to the Device Manager, find your DVD-ROM, double click, in the Properties tab make sure you have Enable digital CD audio for the CD-ROM device checked.
