The CD-Rom's DAC is only applicable if the analog cable is connecting the CD-Rom to the Soundcard and this is not the case, I was just using winamp and it played perfectly. So I beleive that this is possible and maybe a way of making a good cheap diy cd player.

I just dont have enough knowledge to build the entire thing myself.

If you want to look at playing MP3s without a PC, visit:

You could use this for reading from a CDROM drive.

But for reading audio cds, forget about using the IDE interface. Would take a LOT of effort to get it working.

Why do you think that it is too difficult, if that thing can read mp3's off of a cd and a computer can read audio cd's digitally it should be able to be done (IMHO)...

Just tried to play a scratched CD in my DVD Player, and the pops and
clicks are far more annoying than from my Sony 720. Where the DVD really
hangs for seconds the Sony just makes small clicks.

Yes that should be possible, given the appropriate software,
but the drive will not be able to go back and reread when it
wncounters read errors, which it can when reading a data CD.
