CD drive problem



at work we run windows 98, and on one box when insert a cd to listen to WMP reconize the cd-rom drive & tracks but will not play the songs, i get a box error saying:
"WMP cannot find the specific file. be sure the path is typed correctly. If it is the file does not exist at the specified location, or the computer where the file is stored is offline"

and also when try in CDPLAYER.exe where usually says the info on the cd like what track and what not it says :
"data or no disc loaded".

the wierd part is using explorer i can see the drive and the tracks in it. Not sure what was going on i went to start and run to do "d:\" and regedit was last thing used. Any way to figure out what is wrong or to see if something in the registery was changed?

is it an older cd? and older drive? a burned cd? some older drives might not read a cdr.........someolder cd are not read in digital format....some older drives might not read a newer cd............

could be a number of hardware problems before a software problem..............:huh:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
