I have 2 cd drives. I can play both with Windows Media Player.
But with FMOD, only one will play, and that is the default device.
I can control the 2nd device, but no sound comes through the sound card.
Why does it work with Windows Media and not FMOD?
I’m using version 3.70

It’s because the CD drive is connected directly to the sound card, and only one drive can be connected at the time, except if you have a DVD-Rom that have a SPDIF out and a sound card that have a SPDIF in. FMOD use that connection to play CD.
For Windows Media Player, the two drive will play because WMP play digitally the music, it don’t pass by the connection, it pick up the data and pass it to the processor and then play it in the sound card, that’s why WMP can have an equalizer on the cd drive, and DSP unit. If you select the option “Analog” in the option of WMP (in french its in “Outils/Périphériques/Propriétés”, and in english, I supposed, “Tools/Hardware/Properties” or something like that)
Hope you understand, it’s not really clear.
