well, that pretty much says it, I actually asked this question last year.... but this whizbang database doesn't lend itself to looking backwards....so

I have a Music CD that also has some Flash junk on it, when I put the CD in the PC I get the cute and stupid flash show.... but no music, if i go into Explorer... all I see is the EXE for the Flash.

Isn't there some sort of Keyboard command that one uses to make the PC see the audio side of this booger.

thanks, bill

High points so maybe I will remember it the next time

Well to find out if explorer sees anything else on the disk just do a search for files *.* and see what returns.

If you know what the extensions are of the other files you can narrow the search by looking for those particular file extensions such as *.mp3, *.cda etc. If the search retuns nothing then I think you are out of luck. Sometimes Explorer misreads a disk and if you hit the F5 key it will refresh the list.

From your previous question.

Try: Just hold down Shift (to prevent Autorun) when inserting the disc. (yeah, cross fingers, pray to the moon...)

Had this prob once under Win98: A CD with both Audio and "multimedia" tracks. Seems like at least an early edition of Win98 does not accept a CD as both audio and data; once it stumbles over the autorun.inf it denies there could be audio tracks (and, after preventing autorun, I fired up CD Player applet, let the CD play - and the other files could no more be found!)
