Audio CD causes Bugcheck

Whenever I try to play an audio CD, or an audio CD is in the drive at boot time, XP throws a bugcheck.  

The bugcheck code is either D0 (DRIVER_CORRUPTED_MMPOOL) or C5 (DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL), depending on whether or not an audio CD was in the drive at boot time.

Yes, it worked fine at one time.  Unfortunately it's been such a long time since I've played an audio CD, a lot of water (and upgrades) have flowed under the bridge, so pinpointing when the offender was installed is not possible.

Interestingly, or unfortunately, enough, with Verifier active, XP fails to boot, and entering Safe mode, Verifier setings are cleared.

Soo, any good ideas on tracking down the malefactor, or is just slog through all the driver loads one by one?

If you haven't already seen this then you might take a look.  I'm not sure that it will help though since the alternative mentioned to your routine above doesn't appear to work with DMA devices which probably includes your cd.  I don't understand the process by which autoplay works, but if it loads a specific driver that then calls creates a call to the appropriate program associated with that particular autoplay setting, then you might be able to discover it by downloading process explorer from http://sysinternals.com com and seeing what loads when you insert a cd, assuming the comp isn't completely locking up.  If it is, then go to system properties advanced tab under startup and recovery and uncheck the auto reboot setting so that you'll have time to read everything.  My guess is that it would either have to be a system file associated with the autoplay feature for audio cd's or a driver that comes with the player you have associated with the autoplay audio setting.  If it was a sound card driver, then the error would occur anytime you played music, I suspect.  If its associated with the autoplay audio feature itself, then running SFC /SCANNOW might fix the windows file thats corrupt while if it's a player problem, then upgrading the player or uninstalling it and then reinstalling or upgrading might fix it.  If it's the sound card drivers, then it would do it all the time, I suspect.

The first thing I did was an sfc - it made no complaints.
Alas, ProcExp doesn't show driver loads - that's why I was hoping that Verifier would help.

I haven't been able to find any extant utilities that give me what I'm looking for, so I've decided to have som fun - I just started writing a utility that's a combination of SC QUERY, ProcExp, and Depends.

Thanks for the points but since I didn't give you a solution, you can go to support in the upper right hand corner and get a refund.  It might be that you just didn't post the question at a very good time based upon the responses that you received.  I would get a refund and then repost at a busier time.  Depending upon the topic area and how busy things are, if a question goes for more than a few hours without significant response, chances are it will just fade away unnoticed. Once your on page 2 you might as well be on page 200.  Thanks for your generosity but I would get the refund and use it to maybe find a solution to this or another problem.  Good Luck. Sorry I didn't have more.

OK, well CO seems to be doing OK all things considered but he just found out that his father has cancer and the prognosis doesn't seem to be very optimistic.  So, we are trying to reup our effort to promote his website at cityofangels.com and try some new promotion ideas.  If you have a chance drop by the website and also the post: Looking for CrazyOne to say hi.  The more people that know, the better it is for CO.  Thanks for the points and don't worry about me passing you in programming, the teacher made me write this 100 times on the classroom printer

for lop=1 to 1000
print "Tim Can't Program"
next lop

I can't remember, but I don't think it worked.     Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
