CD Audio problems driving me mad!
Posted on 1998-01-14
I am at my wits' end trying to figure out what is wrong with my CD audio player. The CD rom works fine in almost all circumstances, and until recently was fine with CD audio, but for the last few months the only way I have been able to get it to play audio discs is by installing the Power Toy FlexiCD. But even then all it does is play the disc from start to end, with none of the extra functionality of the program available.
Windows 95's own CD player refuses to acknowledge that there is an audio CD in the drive, and I get this reading with BCM Diagnostics, which I have also installed.
I've checked the file associations and drivers, and reinstalled them (both the cd drivers supplied and also W95 cd player). I've considered that there could be connection problems, but if that was the case how come FlexiCD will play the disc, albeit in a limited fashion?
What could be the problem here?
