I updated windows media player from 9 to 10 yesterday, but when I load a cd into either of my two drives they will not run. When I click on play or auto play I get a message to insert a cd into the drive. I've checked all the properties on both drives but nothing seems to work. Has anyone got any ideas. I'm running XP home fully updated with SP2 etc. Thanks in advance.
This is no help but to say, that just like you, since I got WDP version 10 it cant play mp3's. It says that codecs are not found. I am trying to get some help from the windows media forum and web sitre.
Don't you just love Microsoft, I seem to remmember the same sort of thing happening (ie it screwed the system up)when I upgraded WMP from 8 to 9 on my old PC. The current upgrade also altered some of my email settings.
I've checked and double checked everything, I've set WMP to every config I can in the two cd drive prop menu's but still no go. The cd's spinup OK but when I click on the drive and select play I get the message to insert a cd into the drive. I've even checked the setting in the BIOS and they are OK. I forgot to say that I'm running an AMD 64bit cpu would make any differance. I've looked at the article in PCA on page 25 second item down but that relates to WMP 9. But I'll have a look and report back. Thanks so far one and all.
I've used system restore to go back to before I updated to WMP10 and all is OK. I was very surprised that SP2 installed OK but as for WMP10 I won't be touching it with a barge pole. If only I could afford an Apple Mac. Thanks one and all for your help.
