Since a week I am not able to see .CDA entries in explorer or total commander any more for audio cds. Even windows media player says please insert medium because my lg bd re drive seems to be empty even if a cd is inserted. this even happens with commercial audio cds. when I insert cd rom when wmp is open it directly plays this audio cd.

vlc player when being told "open medium" with selected medium is audio-cd plays the audio cd. I just tried reinstalling the cdrom driver for the blue ray drive, because there is not a driver from the manufacturer so it takes the driver from microsoft developed in 2006. because i dont have a burning program yet, i didnt cope with lowerfilters/upperfilters in the registry. would be nice if anybody has an idea or same issues. formerly everything worked perfect with cda files recognized in aimp. assigning the programs as autostart/autoplay doesnt help either. data-cds are further readable. the drive stops reading (blue led in front of drive) the audio cd after a few seconds, while data cds are read much longer upon insertion. ITunes finds the cd if already inserted and plays the titles normally.
