i have just put a cd in and opened it u up with media player and i got a message saying cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly.

You may have a failed windows update this causes that problem disable windows auto update and reboot that may cure it.It did for me. Someone else has just posted with similar problem
