Windows 7: Connecting Front Panel Audio to Sound Card

Connecting Front Panel Audio to Sound Card

I have a front audio panel and a CMI 8738-6ch sound card.

The front audio does not work and has a wire coming directly from the back of it with this plug on the end of it...


There are 4 wires going into this plug.

On the sound card I have a 4 pin connector which, by trying with the computer turned off, I know fits this plug.


Despite them fitting together, this being the only wire coming from the front audio panel and plug being on the sound card we all know that naivety often makes 2+2 = 5 and so I was hoping some could offer guidance before I plug something in wrong.

Thanks in advance.

I am not intimately familiar with that card, though normally, yes, that would be the correct connection.

Thanks for the quick response.

Under normal circumstances, is there any adverse effects to connecting the wrong way round or will it simply not work?

It should simply not work if connected wrong.

It may be that the pins on the connector are wired differently than the pins on the card. In which case, you may have to rewire the connector.
