KsCD allows you to set whether to play as audiocd or digitally. Audiocd method 
requires an analog cable between the drive and sound card. The second method 
is substantially grabbing and playback as a conventional audio. Because most 
of new computers not allows analog connection, it is preferable to use 
digital playback. It usually has fewer problems.
