but a box comes up unable to play file and in infrview an error says could be codecs

They used to play but not tried for a while.

For any one else with this trouble this cured it for me.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaResources\mci

Delete this:
cdaudio

Reboot!

Done this and now all cd's play, Thank you all for help
