It is extremely unlikely that you are getting actual digital playback of
the sound. More likely it's electrical noise somewhere in the system,
perhaps the CD-ROM drive itself. There isn't much that can be done about
that, save better designed and shielded equipment. If that is the problem,
you might get some useful results by rearranging the devices or cables in
your computer. Turning down unused mixer channels on the sb16 couldn't
hurt either.
