that's a real good question. Does anyone on the list know if the G3
All-In-One has direct analog to the sound card or not?

I DO know the CD plays fine thru the Mac, in fact with my external
speakers it ROCKS!!!

Hmm that's an idea.. maybe i should try unplugging the external
speakers, maybe it is playing thru the internal speakers, and just not
outputting to the headphone jack.. I'll check

Meantime I hope I'm not S-O-L.

Does your CD drive use an analog output to connect to the sound card? If

so, is the cable there and connected? If it doesn't use an analog
as with some of the newer machines, then you might be SOL for the time
being. Least that is what I was told when I couldn't get CD sound on a
haven't had time to explore the issue further.
