SP2 appears to be stopping Media Player recognizing .CDA files

    Since installing XP Service Pack 2 I have been unable to play

    CD's on my PC. The player cannot recognise .cda files even

    though that extension is in the list of files that Media Player

    can play. Error message 001100cd appears when try to play.

    I re-installed all the CODECS but it made no


    I have now installed Media Player 10 and the problem remains.

    If I go to 'Rip Audio CD' section in Media Player the Audio Disk

    in the drive is shown but 'greyed out', as is the other (DVD)


    From reading around on the 'Net it sounds as if SP2 may possibly have
    introduced some DRM measures which are involved - but I cannot find any
    way around the problem. It may be that Media Player needs to access the
    'Net to validate the CD license?? but the PC that I play CD's on does
    not have access to the Internet.

    Can anyone advise please?
