Cant play Audio CDs
Posted on 2002-04-01
Win98 and Media Player 7.1, Dell Optiplex PIII 550 with integrated sound, Samsung 30x CDROM SCB104(?). All other sound files play and games and their sounds, no problem. When you insert an audio cd, the green light blinks and the CD really never spins up. Checking the drives under My Computer show 'AUDIO CD D:', so it recognizes it. Explore the CD and you see individual tracks of music. Try to play or open them, you get nothing. Downloaded Media Player 7.1 and some Codec patch file from MS, no help. Now when run Media Player, it gives Error 0x80040265 - does not support file type. (.CDA assuming)
Any ideas? BTW - I put a creative 24x CDROM in, it did same thing.
