Search for CDPLAYER.EXE all over your disk.
If you can't find it, go to

http://ftpsearch.lycos.com/?form=advanced

and conduct a search for CDPLAYER.EXE. Save it to your Windows directory and try again.

Well from the start menu run find and look for this file:

START--FIND--FILES OR FOLDERS

search c:\ for cdplayer.exe

If this does not find the file, then go tot the control panel and from the add/remove programs applet on the windows setup tab select multimedia components then go to details, this will present the multimedia components installed.

START--SETTINGS--CONTROL PANEL--ADD/REMOVE HARDWARE--WINDOWS SETUP--MULTIMEDIA

If you find that the cdplayer check box is unchecked then check this box to install the component.

If the cdplayer check box is selected then this means that the component was previously installed and is iether corrupted or has been deleted, in this case uncheck the box and click OK, then restart your P.C this will uninstall the component. Oncce your computer has restarted then from the same location (add/remove programs--windows setup) reinstall the component and then restart your computer when asked to.

You will need your win98 cd for this.

Open up your CD drive through My Computer, and you will see TRACKXX.CDA files. Hold down the shift, and right click the file and select OPEN WITH. Then select the CDPLAYER.EXE from the list.

Thank you vaughn lyle.  I did this yesterday, but I forgot to uninstall before reinstalling. Duh! I'm fairly new to this game and everyone tells me its 95% operator error.
