How to play CD Audio from external CD on Mac OS 8.1?


Well-known member
I have an AudioMedia II that I have my CD-ROM hooked up to, and the audio goes in just fine, but I can't find a way to change it so when playing CDs the input pipes it into the output like it does with internal CD-ROMs.

I don't know what an AudioMedia II is...do you mean you have an external SCSI CD-ROM drive hooked to your computer? If so, sound doesn't go through SCSI: most external drives of the era had audio out jacks on them. If yours does, connect those to your Macs audio in jack, and use the Sound contron panel to select audio playthrough.

What Mac is it, anyway?
