Question about HP Computers & Internet
Cannot play CD or dvd's
Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Your problem is indeed related to a software setting. When your DVD writer software was installed, it automatically sets itself the default program to play certain files(like music or movies, etc) If you want to "choose" a program to be used for your music, you have to right click the file you want to open, and select the option "Open with..." Then just select the application you want to use. If you want to make it your default application from now on, simply check the box at the bottom that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" Problem solved..! Please don't forget to rate...
