PLAYING A CD
You provide the application to play or record audio sounds, such as the Media Player in your
Accessories program group or folder. When playing a CD, you should verify the following, as
1. Ensure that your CD-ROM is properly installed and the audio cable connected.
2. Ensure that the CD-ROM device drivers are loaded.
3. Ensure that the CD-ROM Base I/O address used by the Multimedia Modem Plus is the same
as the Base I/O address used by your CD-ROM device driver. If you have any problems, see
the documentation that comes with your operating system.

to the list. For more information on adding device drivers to the system, see the
documentation that comes with your computer.
