Try WMP Tools>Options>Devices tag. Highlight your drive and enable analogue rather than digital in both cases.

I found that if digital is selected nothing can be played....:-)

Sorry, should have added Properties after highlighting your drive(s) above and then enable etc....

I think it has something to do with SPDIF and whether you have a drive(s) with this feature whether you enable digital rather than analogue; digital output not very common on inexpensive drive models.

thanks to everyone for their suggestions but so far no joy, even after deselecting digital the message still reads......no disc in drive "e"
