Music CDs won't play on my CD-ROM
I can play a CD only by hitting the play button on the face of the cd-rom drive itself, CD plays fine. But none of these programs work: Winamp, Windows media player, real player...etc.
When I look at MY COMPUTER, then the CD-ROM drive, it says AUDIO CD, if I open it it shows the 16 tracks but for reasons that are driving me nuts is that it won't play on a GUI program!!! I have loaded new Audio drivers, loaded BIOS updates/flashed it, removed & reinstalled the CD-ROM, pulled almost all my hair out, etc.
CPU=Athlon T-Bird 1300
CD-ROM= ACER 52x
SOUND=Onboard VIA AC'97 (installed latest drivers also)
This has really stumped me!!! Any help would be much appreciated!!! Thanks!
