Use the CD-ROM drive as a audio CD player without the computer

Most of the CDROMS obtainable have an Audio-Out Output to either plug in the headphones or connect it to an amplifier.
This circuit allows to make use of the CDROM as a stand alone Audio CD player without the computer.
This circuit is nothing but a power supply which supplies +5v, +12V & Ground to the CDROM drive &
hence can be used without the computer.
You ought to buy a D-type power connecter to connect this circuit's outputs to the CDROM.
The details of the D connector are shown along with the circuit diagram.
Note that the D-connector goes in to the CDROM in way & hence prevents any destroy due to wrong connection.
Make positive that the 12V(yellow) wire is connected to the right of the D-connector(as seen from behind ,i.e the connector holes away from you with the bowed portion of the connector upwards)
As soon as an Audio CD is inserted, the CD begins to play. To move to the next track, press the Skip-Track button on the CDROM front Panel.
