"cannot play cd audio" in Windows Media Player &/or other players

  1. Author C00D1197 - Suggested fix for W2K/WMP 9 users who cannot
    play audio CDs

    I'm using Win XP Pro

    Please note that my system was always fully functional except that neither WMP 9
    nor RealOne CD Player would play audio CDs.

    My problem was caused by a random, unexplained loss of my (MCI )
    Audio CD driver. The following procedure helped me to restore the lost driver and regain audio CD playback capability: Currently my
    WMP application is the default player for my PC's CD audio filetype
    (.cda) and I'm sure that REal Player would do just as well if I were to make it
    the default CD player.

    Please try the following steps to reinstall the MCI CD Audio
    Driver: (NOTE:
    The hardware troubleshooter page in the Windows 2000 'Help'
    files that
    instructs how to install the MCI CD Audio driver is erroneous.
    following is the correct procedure)

    1. Control Panel -> Add/Remove Hardware
    2. Click Next
    3. Select "Add/Troubleshoot a device" and click Next
    4. Select "Add a new device" and click Next
    5. Select "No, I want to select the hardware from a list" and
    click Next
    6. Select "Sound, video and game controllers" and click Next

    7. Select "(standard system devices)" under "Manufacturers" and
    Control Devices" under "Models." Click "Have Disk"
    8. The "Install from Disk" window opens. Manually enter your
    PC's location
    for the System32 folder in the address window and click OK -

    NOTE: If you try using the 'browse' function with your mouse to
    enter the
    address it may enter the wrong file. Key in the address
    manually! Good
    9. Restart the computer and check if you can play an audio CD.

    If the solution above is applicable to you then it will likely solve the
    problem. Good luck.
