I have a set of Saitek A250 Wireless speakers and a set of Logitech speakers. I can't get iTunes to play on the Saitek speakers, but Windows Media Player and normal Windows sounds do without issue. I'm running Windows XP SP3 and iTunes (HP). The speakers were working on previous versions of iTunes

click start control panel sounds and audio then select audio make sure the default player is the media you want to use as your default sounds also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
hope this helps

For stuck CD do this:

Hit Ctrl,Alt and Delete all at the same time> Windows Task Manager should open> Click on the "Applications Tab"> Click End Task to close all Apps.> Now go to your Cd/Dvd player hit the eject button on the front.> Remove CD.

1. In Control Panel, double-click Sounds and Audio Devices.
2. On the Audio tab, select the devices you want in the Default Device boxes.
3. Click the Use only default devices check box to select it.
4. Click OK.
