[Solved] Windows Media Player cannot read CD drive digitally

Question: [Solved] Windows Media Player cannot read CD drive digitally

When I attempt to play an Audio CD I am prompted with the following dialog: We have determined that Windows Media Player cannot accurately read your CD drive digitally. Windows Media Player will therefore switch to reading your CD drive in analog mode. Your CDs will play, but the following items will not work when playing CDs: Visualizations, SRS Wow effect, Graphic Equalizer.

Could someone please explain what's happening all of a sudden? WMP was playing fine until recently.

Someone suggested that I change my drive designations back to default. I recently switched letter designations for my burner and my DVD-ROM drive. I attempted to switch them back by going to Device Manager but was unable to. My CF Card reader had taken over one of the previous letter designations of one of the other two drives. So I went into Device Manager to straighten things out, but now I can't even find my CF Card reader listed. It was there before! In fact, it still works, but for some reason it's not showing up in Device Manager. I find all of this really confusing. If I could find it perhaps I could get the three letter designations back to what they ought to be, and maybe then WMP would work properly.

I would really appreciate help with this very annoying problem.

Thank you,
Bill

Answer: [Solved] Windows Media Player cannot read CD drive digitally

Okay, I solved my own problem again. All I had to do was go into Device Manager > CD-ROM and remove something called NERO-IMAGEDRIVE 2. Doing so allowed me to switch my D and E drives back to their default settings. I had recently reversed them and found that I couldn't switch them back until I first got rid of IMAGEDRIVE 2.

Anymore it seems that every day I have another annoying problem pop up, some undoubtedly of my own making.

I was using Media Player version 9.0 and I installed a new Sony Burner onto my D: Drive. Media player will no longer burn. It will not activate the new burner. I installed the software which came with the burner called "Nerosmart". Using Nerosmart is very difficult to find songs off of my hard drive using it. Media player is much more organized and I would rather use media player to burn with. How can I reconfigure it to reconize my new burner? I am a novice computer user using Windows xp and an e machine computer. Thank you for your help.

Hello,

Only my second thread here, so I am learning. But I think I have found some friends and I thank you!

My question, I have a bunch of cds that I made MP3s music backups on a couple years ago on a Compaq P2. I now use a Dell 8300 with XP Pro. I just upgraded to Win Media 10 and am using it now as default player. Anyway I successfully copied some of the old MP3s to my library but only about half of the cds. The other half will WM10 will not read in the drive. The weird thing is, it will play the music and show unamed files, but when I try to copy and move to My music folder, it will come back with something like "disk may be corrupt" or some other reason. It wouldn't read them prior to downloading WP10 either but I didn't try them all before. After upgrading I gave it another attempt and like I said, it did read about half. Disks have been kept in safe storage and are clean and unscratched.
Thanks Bill

Hello!

I have a Windows XP Home Edition system and I am trying to import a video from a DVD-R disc into Windows Media Player. I purchased a DVD burner to convert home videos to dvds (using my TV), which works perfectly. In order to play these videos on my XP in Windows Media Player, I have been using a freestanding Memorex DVD recorder that attaches to the computer, as my XP drive does not read DVD-R. This also works just fine. Windows Media Player will read and play my DVD-R discs, but I am unable to get it to actually download/import the videos. I want to be able to download these videos from my DVD-R discs so that they can be stored on my computer and shared with family.

For clarification, when the video is playing in Windows Media Player, the right-hand side of the player lists the video as "Unknown DVD". Clicking on the "Library" tab on the top bar, it again lists the video as "Unknown DVD (F)". Clicking on the "Rip" tab on the top bar, the left-hand side shows "No Disc (D)" and "Unknown Disc (F)", with the message "To begin, insert an audio CD into the CD drive.". The player seems to be perfectly capable of reading and playing my DVD-R videos, but it apparently only recognizes discs in its (D) drive for ripping or importing.

Do I need to purchase more software to be able to do import videos from my DVD-R discs? Should I be using different discs altogether? Any ideas would be greatly, great... Read more

Answer:Windows Media Player will read but not import from DVD-R

A good program to rip a DVD would be DVD Shrink. They have discontinued the program, but you can still find the latest version by searching for it in google.

Hi,

I've been having problems listening to music on windows media player and watching flash videos. The playback is choppy (sometimes gets stuck and generally bounces around) but also my system seems to take an age to start up and is slow.

I've run disk-defragmentor, scandisk, spybot, adaware, AVG etc. But no luck.

This has come about since I've put about 20GB of music onto my laptop (I still have around 47GB of 70GB free). However, when Windows Media Player is not open the system still runs slowly and I have no luck running flash videos.

The only possible solution I can think of is deleting the music but I'm a bit hesitatant to do so because it took me ages to put it on!

Anyway, thanks very much for any help you can give me!

ok (as you my know by know i rarther hate windows media player)

well basicly i have loads of .mp3 files in my Docs and my music folders, there not all music files, when windows media sees them it ads them to libary, Annoyingly, i manages to stop it downloading extra info like album art (cos its soo stupid, it gets it wrong like 95% of the time lol) but it keeps adding every thing back to the libary even if i delete them from it, its soo annoying any!! surgestions please?
 

Answer:Solved: Stop Windows Media Player Automaticly ading media files to libary

In WMP go to Tools > Options and uncheck all the boxes in the Player tab, Privacy tab and Library tab.

In the Library tab click on Monitor Folders and set the top part to "My personal folders", then click on Advanced Options.

Set all the folders to "Ignore". Unfortunately you can't set the Rip folder to "Ignore" so for that go to the Rip music tab, where it says "Rip music to this location" click on Change and create an empty folder somewhere. Then just never add any music files to that folder.

Then delete everything out of the WMP library and it should remain empty.

Well, I'm not sure what to do here. Up until a few days ago I was sharing my media with all computers on my network on my wireless router.

Now when I log into windows and open WMP 11 it says that I am no longer sharing media, would you like to turn on sharing? So I say yes and confirm to share my media to all devices on my network, mainly my PS3.

I uninstalled it and reinstalled it (well it actually just reverted back). I also checked to make sure that Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is set to automatic in Admin tools. And also checked windows firewall that it allows the service.

So I am at a loss here, I don't know how to get my media sharing capabilites back. I know its not my PS3, as I am sharing media from my laptop right now. Any suggestions?

Thanks High

Funny thing is IPSEC Services do not have to be disabled in XP.

Try checking your autoplay settings.
Right click the drive causing issues, Properties, AutoPlay.
Go through the drop down menu and choose "Select an action to perfrom", "Take no action".
for each of the items in the list.

This means when plugged in it will not open with anything, and you will have to go to My Computer to open it.

Media Player on Windows 8 can not play DVD movie disks. You have to install a separate DVD movie disk player software, such as Media Player Classic or VLC Media Player, both free. If you want a more sophisticated software, then you may try and buy Cyberlink PowerDVD13.The fact that you could play DVD movie disks previously, you may have had a shareware player that has timed out or that Acer-installed player has the codecs corrupted.

Hi there, this may be two posts a software and a hardware but I have problem with both which are related. I spent the whole of yesterday looking through here and applying various things but some help at this point would be appreciated. My friend has a old IBM thinkpad pentium 4 with 256 MB of RAM with a 20 GB hard drive. He is an computer novice so I am trying to help him. The only thibg he wants the computer to do is to play music, and surf the internet. He has a separate 250 GB hard drive for his music.

The problem, at the moment windows media player 11 installed on the C drive, I assume it has to be installed here because it is linked to Windows XP is unable to open his media library stored on his external hard drive it is about 32 GB in Size. The computer appears to be maxing out on RAM.

Using CC cleaner I have tried to remove all unneccesary programs from his c drive, cleaned his registry, and defraged the registry. I also defraged his external drive yesterday using diskkeeperlite. I have run spybot and scanned using AVG, the C drive appears ok. I have cleared all of his music files from the C drive to his external drive.

After doing all this it is telling me that he is still using 15 GB of his 20 GB C drive. I am sure that when he bought Windows XP and prgrams were only using around 3 or 4 GB. So I cannot understand what is taking up the other 12 or so GB.

Ok I have spent a lot of time trying to figure this out. I have all my music on and separate drive then my OS. my music is on drive R:\. when I open media player all my music and play lists are there and I can play them. I set up sharing on my R:\ drive music folder and have media player set up to share music with remote computers. when I open media player on a remote computer and access my main it sees my play lists and the sample music that came with the system. none of the stuff on my R:\ drive is visible. I can see the music if I connect to the computer through the network places and access it through the shared folder. but I like the play lists. why won't media player share?

Answer:Share Music on a different drive with Windows Media Player

I'm guessing here but I think it has to do with Microsoft observing the restrictions imposed by the DRM of music. I believe they are taking the approach that your use of the OS and network to circumvent the DRM is your responsibility but they are not going to provide software that has features specifically designed to violate DRM.

I noticed, for example, that the PVR function within the Windows Media Center will not allow a network drive to be used as a destination for recorded TV programs. I can only use a local drive as a destination. After recording to a local drive, there is no problem using Explorer to move a recording to a network drive but since the network drive cannot be designated as a location for the recorded program, it also cannot be used as a source location for Recorded TV playback. Ironically, I can designate a network drive as a source or destination for the Video Library (usually a location for user created videos) and any videos located there, including recorded TV programs, are visible and playable as part of the Video Library.

I haven't actually tried to access any of these network located items from a different PC on the network but I expect I would find the same restrictions.

Just recently, I have been unable to use Musicmatch and Sonic RecordNow with my CD-RW drive. Even when there's a CD in the drive, Musicmatch would say it is empty. RecordNow is even stranger, not only does it not see the CD but also shows that it is a DVD-RAM drive. However, I can see the CD using Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player.

The last thing I did before the problem started was buy and download some music files from puretracks.com. It did ask me to run some DRM software which works with Windows Media Player. As much as I don't want to be too hasty in pointing the blame, that DRM software looks pretty guilty to me.

This question has nothing to do with copy-protected software or media. What I'm asking about is in no way illegal.
I have a DVD recorder that creates DVDs. I used it to create a small DVD and I would like to be able to convert that to a format that can be read by my PC - specifically Windows Media Player. I'm guessing a format like .AVI, .MPEG, .MWV or MP4 would be suitable.

I went to ASK.COM and asked about copying DVDs to data files or "ripping" DVDs.

I found several sites that promised "absolutely free downloads" for software that would convert a DVD to a suitable format. Nothing I tried worked. One of them actually converted the DVD to a nasty image of a bug crawling along the screen and I assumed this was someone's idea of a trick to play on people who wanted to convert copy protected software. But since I didn't fit that category, I thought this was a real stupid and nasty waste of time. Of course, this assumes I am correct. I could be mistaken.

Anyway, I read some posts that explained that doing this sort of thing for free was very difficult and frustrating. Apparently, it is not at all easy.

Yet, I see clips from video files posted all the time on Internet forums. So there must be a way to convert files from a DVD.

Can anyone tell me a solution how to do this? I examined my DVD and it appears that all the files on that DVD are normal. There is only one video clip on the DVD and it is about ten seconds long.

Q. How do I uninstall the Player?
A. Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, depending upon which version of the Player and Windows that you are using, you might be able to roll back to the version of the Player that was previously on your computer. The procedure varies depending upon which version of the Player you are running.

Your wife may have installed a codec with the installation option of "This User Only", which would obviously prevent you from using this codec when it's needed. This is a guess, however, so my solution would be to install a codec pack which should over come this problem.

Try downloading and installing the K-Lite Codec Pack.

Answer:Solved: Windows Media Player

Sounds like the soundcard drivers may have to be reinstalled or updated.

Or DirectX may have to be updated to the latest version.

Try this: Open WMP, go to Tools, Options, Devices and wait till the window populates. Then highlight Speakers and click the Properties button.

Where it says, "Audio Device to Use", try changing to "Default Direct Sound Device". If that is already chosen, choose your soundcard from the dropdown list.

I know with Windows Vista you can edit this information simply by selecting a song, and then you will all the information at the bottom of Windows Explorer, where you can just mouse-click over it and edit it. iTunes also lets you edit, very easily, and personally I think it works much better than Windows Media Player for audio.

Mine is just a curious problem but it is darned annoying. My WMP9 forgets which playlist was running last! With version 7 when I started the player it would have whatever playlist I'd shut it down with loaded and ready to play. But with 9 it starts with nothing loaded and I have to select a playlist every time. Its just annoying. I thought it might be an option that I don't have selected but nothing in the options menu looks like it would cause this. I suspect its just the random nifty feature that microsoft had to get rid of to go along with the improvements of version 9. (You know how they can never leave ALL the cool functions of a previous version of software working when they issue a "new and improved" version. )

Anyway, if nobody knows what the heck I'm talking about let me know and I'll try to give more info. And any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. If not I guess I'll switch back to version 7 and hope the cool tiny, unobtrusive skin I found still works with that version.

Hi,

OS, Windows XP Home

In the last three weeks I have been unable to use WMP 10 due to the the message "An internal application error has occured". I have downloaded the player and reinstalled it, but without success. I have followed a number of threads within this Forum without resolving the issue, so can anybody provide an answer.
One situation I have not been able to resolve is removing WMP10 completely and then re-installing. The programme does not appear in my Add/Remove icons in Control Panel. I wanted to try installing WMP 9 to see if that worked, but I could not because the Computer tells me WMP10 is installed when I thought I had removed it.
Many thanks in advance and do not hesitate to ask for any information.
Regards,
Martyn
 

Answer:Solved: Windows Media Player v 10

WMP10 is not removable in the normal way from add/remove programmes. When you update to this version you are given the choice of creating a restore point to go back to for this purpose. I wouldn't go back to it weeks later though, a lot will have changed since then.
Check through the suggestions on this page.

I tried to download Windows Media Player 9 and at the end i got a warning box that said "Extracting file failed.It is most likely caused by low memory(low disk space for swapping file) or corrupted Cabinet file.
Does anyone know what this means?and if I can correct it.
I have Media version 7 now and only use half my disk space (4.3 ) and I have 192 megs of ram.
I have no idea what a corrupted Cabinet file is and where the low memory would be if i have half my disk space left.
I basically just wanted to up grade.
Thanks
Steve

Driving me nuts and frustrating to boot.

Answer:[SOLVED] windows media player

Have you tried reinstalling Windows Media Player?

How does the crash happen? Does the program still for a moment, and then the program closes, and a message pops up "Windows Media Player has enountered a problem and has to close"?
Or does your whole computer crash?
