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.
i have installed some new codecs to play dvd's ie. xvid divx and ac3 could this be the problem

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
