cant play audio cds in cd rom drives
claire Jul-13-02 04:39 AM
Hi there,
Yesterday for some reason my cdrom stoped playing audio cds.I think all the problem started when i installed another audio player called liquid player. When i inserted a cd i got an error message from windows media player but to be honest i didnt pay much attention to what it said (im kicking myself now)...i think it said something about something digital and then visualations wouldnt work. When media player wouldnt work ii installed winamp but that wouldnt work with cds iether. i can still play data cds. I have two drives and audio cds cannot be played in iether of them....when i turn up the sound really loud i can hear a faint beat in the background......ive opened up the box to see if the aaudio cables have come loose but they are fine....i thought they may have touched the heatsink or something but they are still wel clear......any ideas?

I would uninstall Liquid Player, by going to the control panel and selecting add/remove programs, and then uninstall winamp, and then reboot and try using just your media player. Your computer maybe fighting over which program should play the music.

I uninstalled liquid player immediatly i started having problems and the sound didnt come back.
When i play the cd in the drive if i turn it up really loud i can hear it really really faintly..... ive made sure that nothing is muted in the sound properties.....im a bit unsure about going into the registry to change settings....

Im using winamp.....hmmmm now that you come to mention it i remember that the error message said something about using digital instead of analog or perhaps the other way about....thats when the problems started....
