you do not say what software you are using, but it sounds like it is in "intro" mode, so that it only plays the first few seconds of a track so that you can quickly decide what track you want to play. Obviously, you need to turn off this mode.

Thank you hamelin, but how can i turn off the intro mode if that is the case. I will appreciate your help.

what media player are you using?

Try in play menu/uncheck "intro"

Try clicking, or double clicking it if you see it.

Thanks to Simon 7063 and Ironman 556.
I wemt to CD-Options and I found INTRO is unticked, but in Options\Preferences a small window shows that the intro playing lengtht, in the display is 5 seconds.I could not remove this, and this could mean that the intro mode is on, while it is unticked on the previous window. Can you help solve this problem. Thanks

This would really help!

It is: Windows Media Player - Media Player 2
somewhere else I found : Microsoft (R) CD PLAYER
I hope this info will help.

MS CD Player: Go to Options and uncheck Intro Play.

Thank you stuartli, but as I said above, I hab=ve unchecked Intro Play and that has not solved my problem. I have also said that on Options\ preferences, there is small window with a time to select of 5 to 15 seconds for Intro play which I can not close either.That may be can give a lead to some competent person. Please help if you can

I usually use WMP but I've just tried MS CD Player which has Intro Play unchecked, but with 10 seconds on the Intro Play setting panel.

The audio CD played normally.
