My motherboard and old sound card have connections with CD written on. I have a cable to connect the DVD drive with the sound, but I am not sure what the point of it is. CD Audio is already working as intended through the IDE cable.

Probably for external devices, like a sound mixer of some sort, maybe for DJs and so forth i suppose.

If you dont need it for anything then i wouldnt bother with it.

Those connections were at one point needed for audio playback from an IDE device, but you can now use the IDE bus for that. They are no longer necessary.
