Windows Media Player 10 Not Recognizing Audio

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.992 GHz / 2046 MB

I have a Dell 8400 Desktop computer (P4, 630 (3.0GHZ), HT, 2 MB, Em64T running Windows XP.

This problem just started 2 weeks ago.

When I put an audio cd in Drive D (the top drive), Windows Media Player ( comes on but it doesn't recognize the audio cd. Instead, I get the following error message: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is on another computer, verify that you are connected to the network." However, if I just click on the small top arrow next to "Now Playing" in WMP, it recognizes the D Drive and I can play all the tracks on the audio cd.

I have no problem playing DVDs in the D Drive.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me in solving this annoying problem.


I can't get my dvd's to work in media center. I just get a black screen with no video or audio. I'm using media player 10.

Install Media Player 11 & make sure you have SP3 installed.
