audio for dvd drive

I have a dell dimension 2400. Pentium 4 2.53 ghz. Running xp home. I had to replace my cdrw drive with a cd/dvdrw drive. If i put a cd in it works fine including audio,however when Iplay a dvd I only get video. I assume I have to plug in an audio cord in the back of the drive but I don't know where to plug it in the mother board. Also, need to know if I can use the analog or do I need to use the digital socket? Please help, Thanks

For DVD play you need DVD player software.

Test your DVD and drive with VLC PLAYER (see google) If that works then you know the issue.
