CDA: ... not support the format you are trying to play.

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Christopher Perry, Jan 14, 2004.

  1. I'm having a peculiar problem with all of the media
    players I use: None of them recognize audio CD files.
    Upon first loading an CD I'll get the following from
    Windows Media Player:

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The file is
    either corrupt or the Player does not support the format
    you are trying to play.
    (Clicking more information provides the following error
    code: 0xC00D1199)

    This occurs with all audio CDs tested, and some of these
    CDs had worked previously.

    When I try to access an audio CD from within Windows Media
    Player by selecting CD Audio under the Play menu I get a
    different error:

    Windows Media Player cannot find the specified file. Be
    sure the path is typed correctly. If it is, the file does
    not exist at the specified location, or the computer where
    the file is stored is offline.
    (Clicking more information provides the following error
    code: 0xC00D1197)

    This is very strange as I can view the CD contents from
    Explorer with out issue..

    I've tried uninstalling the CD-ROM both from the OS and at
    the hardware level) and letting it reinstall on reboot.
    I've tried reinstalling the Multimedia components through
    the Windows components wizard. I've tried reinstalling
    Media player.

    It seems that the CODEC for CDAs is corrupt, but I can't
    find any resources that talk about how to address this....

    Any suggestions, short of reinstalling the operating
    system, would be greatly appreciated.

    This should be an MCI-level error, because that's about all you could hit
    that would break *everybody* on your system. I know that's not much to go
    on, but hopefully that narrowing of arena-to-look-at should help.

    WMP doesn't touch the MCI settings in any fashion you care about, so you can
    stop tinkering with it. I do some tweaks to add WMP types to MCI's
    available options, but CD playback is done already by mcicda.drv or so.
