View Full Version : CD writer will not play music

03-04-2004, 10:22 PM
When I try to play a music CD through the CD writer I get an error message..."Windows media player cannot find the specified file....." If I click on help the reference to the error message appears to relate to finding music files on the internet??? (My OS is windows 2000)

Many thanks

is this a cd with copy protection on it? or is the cd scratched or even a copy of a cd. if so then one of these reason could be the cause.

If you are on the internet when trying to play the CD you may have better luck going offline.

Is the writer connected to your sound card?

You could try installing something like Winamp and making it the default player for music CD's, and see if that works. It'll help troubleshoot whether it works or not.
