So /do/ you get sound on the headphone output and /is/ the drive hooked
up to the audio chip?
Digital and analog mode are completely different things here, in analog
mode the drive acts as a CD player providing an analog audio signal at
the headphone output and at its analog output on the drive's back. If
there's nothing connected here you won't hear anything. In digital mode
those outputs aren't used and cdplay tries to read data directly from
the disk, that's why those errors only appear in digital mode.
