in Marvin \ Sound
Look, the connector on your sound card clearly has to be marked as something. Either IDE, Panasonic, Sony, or Mitsumi. Or not, it's Creative, after all. However, being that the CT2740 seems to be a later card, I strongly suspect it's an IDE port.

Re: CT2740 IDE Socket

This interface probably only works with certain (Panasonic) cdrom drives. No, why? If it is clearly labeled as an IDE port, it should work with any ATAPI drive.
