I did not see anyone else online with this issue,, normal sound fx work but no cd sound. I am pretty sure somehow I must have messed somethjing up and discovered the problem.
I was using a USA System 3 card on a japanese Core grafx pc engine.
Setting the proper Japan region systemn card fixed the issue and it's working great.
Thought I would post this in case anyone else noobs it up the way I did can maybe find this post.
