Enhanced CD is reconised as a "normal" Audio CD

Hi, I have searched the archives for this, but haven't found any answers....

When I insert a Enhanced CD into the system, windows reconises it as a "normal" Audio CD

I know that it is a enhanced CD as I have used it before and it says on the packaging...

This has happened to me on another system, but I managed to sort it out myself, but I can't remember how I done it...

Can anyone help? and, as normal, Thanks in Advance

Hi, my chance to learn something new - what is the difference between an Enhanced CD and a normal CD? I have not heard of Enhanced CD before - as I said, my chance to learn something new.

Thanks for the reply...

I mean "mixed" cd as in Audio and DATA (the audio is reconised by a standard CD Player and the data is reconised by a computer)

The disk is "partitioned" (if you will) so that you have a Data section and an audio section, so that a CD player can read the audio and a computer can read both!!!

Must be similar to a kareoke cd then ? My DVD rom wont read the text, but my DVD burner will ?

never used a "kareoke cd" so don't really know...

Both of my drives don't reconise the disk (the one used to which is from my old system)

Me again - I have one of these CD's - CDTV MultiMedia with music tracks and interactive data items. On my PC it only shows as a data cd, it shows icons for the music tracks but will not play them, the music plays ok in a normal hifi system. The cd was originally intended for use on the Amiga 1200, on which it worked a treat.

it is because the data section is only seen on a computer....

to use the audio section, just open a media player and select teh drive and it will play...

I have already tried that with WMP, Quicktime and Power DVD - no go. As I said the music plays ok in a normal HiFi, so I am not bothered by it not playing on the PC. The data parts are Karaoke and Drum-Kit and Guitar play-along inter-active bits. Don't bother with it these days anyhow.
