Windows XP Home and Shuttle X PC - Insanity
Posted on 2004-03-24
Finally got the system installed with the help of another expert here, and everything works find, including the DVD/CD combo EXCEPT when I try to play ANY music CDs. The problem is that everytime I use updated Media Player or PowerDVD or ANY player at all, I get no CD sound and get various error messages. Media Player gives me this, consistently:
Specified Device Not Open or is not recognized by MCI. We've done everything, including WindowsUpdate, went to Media Player, ran diagnostics, ran sfc /scannow. Everything fine but the problem continues. Tried to download other things, but nothing works.
When I explore my computer, I can see all the CD Audio files *.cda but can't get them to play. Found cda file types and they're assigned to Windows Media Player.
