Problems with cd player/burner

Hello, I have a Compaq Presario computer with a cd player/burner. It is about a year old. All of the sudden, any CD that I try to play in it drags and sounds distorted and blurbly (I think I made a new word!). What do you think is going on with it? I have not a clue! And I don't have any other programs running at the same time, so there is no interference there. If you could let me know, I would love you forever. Thank you!

When you put the cd in it dos'ent work

does the CD that you put in that doesn't play are the CD you use before and plays on your CD player?If yes then that is a lens issue the lens probably need replacement

try to clean first the lens of the player with a soft cloth dip in an alcohol wipe the lens do not apply too much pressure when wiping

are the CD format compatible with your player there are different audio formats which we must consider with the compatibility with the player CD,MP3,MIDI,VCD,DVD,MP4 etc.your player must support this format to play this disk.

The primary cause of disk reading failure is the lens itself .if your CD player is more than 3 years old then it must be the lens to replace next is the spindle motor this motor is the one spins the disk the life span of this motor is 4 to 5 years this are the things to consider and you can decide which part needs relacement
thank you and good luck!

HOw do I download music from my computer to my MP3 player


If there came any software CD's with the device, i would suggest that you install it, otherwize, just connect the mp3 player with your computer, go to my computer and your device should be listed.

Now just double click on the mp3 player and copy the music you want on the mp3 player to the music folder on the mp3 player, it should work now.

Best regards

10 year old stereo system CD changer won't play discs

Dust may not be the entire cause, but without knowing the make and model, anything I list would be pure speculation. Please post the make and model. That should give me enough info to list the probable problems and their solutions.

Try a laser eye cleaner. It possibly may need to be dusted on the inside. Overheating can cause strange things to happen to electronics.

Stop playing

Try cleaning the inside of it. Dust and what not can wreak havoc on electronics. That's cool, I used "what not and wreak havoc" in the same sentence. Hope this helps.

you have to take it apart to see whats obstructing it possibly inside.

Well seems it has lasted a long time with you, so you don't have much to loose.

The laser lens could be dirty. A cleaner disc with brushes does the trick.
Or the laser could be off track

How do I put MP3's on my CD player?

If your cd player supports MP3 playback. When you write a music disc with your computer you must write them as a data file. Some burning software will ask if you want MP3 or CDA. if your files are CDA you must convert them to MP3s, you can download software to do this for you. But today most burning software will do this for you.
