Are the flies blocking the fans?

I recall a similar problem that I had where two 'players', (Real and Windows Media player), were trying to open the files at the same time, messing things up. Make sure that Real Player does not have Automatically Play Disc on Insertion,(or some such thing), in the options.

Starting new threads on the same subject is wasteful and possibly unproductive as many forum members may not have seen the earlier version and come up with similar answers:

Apparently Maplins used to sell one as well but it's no longer available...:-(

Perhaps it's more widespread than thought...:-)
