The motherboard is equipped with a BIOS-based audio playback feature called Instant Music. This feature is supported by the onboard audio

Connect the analog audio cable from the optical drive to the 4-pin CD connector (labeled CD1) on the motherboard. See page 53 for the location of the CD1 connector.
