I have a Sovy Vaio. For some reason when I put a cd/dvd in the drive it recognises something is in there but will not allow me to rip audio cd. The laptop is only a few months old. When I put a cd in it and then try to open it by right cliking cd drive in my computer it just hangs. If I eject it then it stops hanging. WM & ITunes will not rip it either.
Any ideas, I have tried looking on the sony website for help but its pants. Sony analysis software on the laptop does not identify a problem.
Tried that but when system reboots it does not find new hardware. Tried it twice. I go back into device manager and the drive is listed. I tried to open an audio cd again, ITUNES popped up and asked to be default player so I said yes. The audio CD shows up and ITUNES asks to import but then it system hangs. When I eject the CD then normal and ITUNES gives error message. The drive seems to be able to read DVD ok. I can right click on the drive with a CD in it and it allows me open it
Same problem get message saying not responding. It gets to the point at which it is ready to rip but hangs. By the way I hate ITUNES but as far as I am aware it is the only thing you can use with the IPOD.
Hi all, it will play DVDs. WMP gives message no CD inserted please insert CD but it brings up the titles in the preview pane. I just click on track one and it starts. Windows Media Centre automatically recognises a DVD it also sees an audio CD just tried one. It shows the CD but when I try play it it just hangs if I tab out and then go back in to it I just get a black screen. It does start to play but thats it. The drive just keeps whirring away
ICF yes using Win 7. Fruit Bat just tried your suggestion. Itunes came up with error message about missing registry keys please reinstall Itunes(not done that yet) I just tries the CD but once again just hung when tried to import. WMP did not see the CD at all.
