Insert the cd, go to windows explorer, click on your cd drive & note the format of whatever is on the disk.
Example MP3, cda & so on.

Now go onto Media Player options / Associations & make sure the format is ticked.

I do not have Media Player installed or know your version, so that is only a rough guide.

Uncable the cd player & boot, after the comp has finshed booting, shut it down.

Recable the cd player & boot.

If it is not working, shut down & try ( borrow ) another player.

CD ROM install

Device Manager
