Cd drive- computer
Could be alot of things. You could have too many programs running in the background.
To fix this press ctrl alt and delete at the same time go to task manager and end any running task that it's being used. While you're at it you can go to START. click on RUN and type in MSCONFIG, go to the STARTUP tab and uncheck any program you dont' want to start when your computer boots up. Then try and play your music and see if that helps.
If that doesn't help try defragging your computer.
If the problem still persists go to START, RUN, type in the box CMD. When the black dos screen pops up type in CHKDSK /R it will ask you to run this after reboot hit hit Y for yes. Then restart this process can take a couple hours so do it before you're going to go to bed, or you're going to work etc.
If it doesnt' help after this then you may have some hardware problems. After this point i would suspect your harddrive may be dieing, or you may not have enough ram to properly decode the music files you're trying to play. Take off the side case and make sure your ram is properly inserted into the ram slots. The side tabs that hold the ram in place should not be sticking out they should be straight up in the air.
And if none of these fix the problem you may want to think about an upgrade if the computer is quiet old (4-5 years old). As technology progresses programs utilize more memory bandwidth and processor power to properly function you may just be too slow.
