Can't play music CD's on media player 9

  Newuser2 22:19 24 Jan 2003

I've downloaded media player 9 but try as I may I can't get any music CD's to play.
I've tried them in both my DVD drive & my HP rewriter but I get a message that media player can't play that particular file.
Anyone got any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong.
I'm running Me on a 500 P111.

Have you got the correct Media player for you O/S.

If you have two buttons bottom right of the Media Player and when clicked on it can change the Media Player colour you have downloaded the wrong version you can not change Media Player colour on the Windows ME version.

Thanks for your replies.
I downloaded MP9 from the windows Me update site so it should be the correct version.
It won't play any music Cd.
I've discovered some plugins to download but I'm not sure which ones or if I should even bother.
May just stick to the HiFi.
As for MS getting it right well not in my life time me thinks.

Hi sauzee....... I have not got another media player, I used to have realplayer but got fed up with the constant updates asking for money etc.(well you know what I mean)

I've reinstalled realplayer, but it will not play audio CD's it did before.
I get a message saying insert audio cd in drive when a cd is already in the drive.
I've gone thru all the boxes and checked that the ticks are in the correct boxes in both mp9 and realplayer and I've checked the drive properties in device manager etc.
But something is obviously missing but what.
Since downloading mp9 I've noticed that some picture formats have changed.
I think I'll dump mp9 and stick to the hifi.

Have you set the playing CD audio configuration to digital or analogue?

There are two versions of WMP9 - you might, as others have pointed out, downloaded the wrong one.
