Media player 9

  vido 13:57 19 Mar 2004

I'm trying to copy music from a CD onto my pc via media player 9 but all I get is 'media player 9 has encountered an unknown error'. Does anyone know how to sort this.

Can you give us your pc spec and version of DirectX, plus is DMA enabled on drives?

I am running a 1gig pentium pc with windows me. DMA is enabled on hard drive. Can't seem to find which version of directx is being used.

If you want to find out what version of DirectX your running, click Start, Run, and type 'dxdiag'.

I assume that works in Win Me (has done for me in 98:SE and XP.

How about the licences/policies enabled within Win Media, what are they set too?

I remember having a problem both creating .wma's and creating CDs. This was some time ago now though, and can't really remember whether it was Win Media 9 or a late version of 8.

Apologies been out for a while. How do I find what the licences/policies within Win Media 9 are set to?

'Tools' --> 'License Management'

But it doesn't appear to apply to Win Media 9.
I've altered my copy protected licensing setup, and the 'Copy Music' section of 'Tools' but it still copies music from CD.

Can't think what my problem may have been with - but I'm fairly certain it was with Windows Media Player 8.

Sorry. =(
