I am currently using a Windows XP Professional desktop machine at work. The player currently installed is Windows Media Player 8.0. How do I set it up so that I can listen to all audio (voicemail delivered to my in-box, stored audio for educational software) by using headphones plugged in the CD jack on the front of my machine ? I even tried listening to CDs, but the sound comes directly the computer's internal speakers. ~~~ I tried using Microsoft help which says: "Cannot Hear Audio Through Your Headphones When Connected to CD-ROM Article ID : 277653 Last Review : November 3, 2003 Revision : 1.0 This article was previously published under Q277653 On this Page SYMPTOMS CAUSE RESOLUTION MORE INFORMATION SYMPTOMS After you install Windows Media Player 7 or 7.1, you are unable to hear compact disc audio through the headphone jack on the computer's CD-ROM drive. CAUSE This behavior occurs because, although Windows Media Player uses digital playback, the headphone jack on the CD-ROM drive is live only during analog playback. Windows Media Player 7 and 7.1 are set to use digital audio extraction methods by default. RESOLUTION To obtain playback through the CD-ROM headphone jack, clear the Digital Playback selection in Windows Media Player in the CD Audio Options settings. To do so, follow these steps: 1. Start Windows Media Player 7. 2. Click Tools, click Options, and then click CD Audio. 3. Click to clear Use Digital Playback.

Thanks in advance.
