of the CDROMS available have an Audio-Out Output to
either plug in the headphones or connect it to an amplifier.
This circuit enables one to use the CDROM as a stand
alone Audio CD player without the computer.
This circuit is nothing but a power supply which supplies
+5v, +12V and Ground to the CDROM drive and
hence can be used without the computer.
You should buy a D-type power connecter to connect this
circuit's outputs to the CDROM.
The details of the D connector are shown along with
the circuit diagram.
Note that the D-connector goes into the CDROM in only
one way and hence prevents any damage due to wrong connection.
Ensure that the 12V(yellow) wire is connected to the
right of the D-connector(as seen from behind ,i.e the
connector holes away from you with the curved portion
of the connector upwards)
As soon as an Audio CD is inserted, the CD begins to
play. To move to the next track, press the Skip-Track
button on the CDROM front Panel.
