If you cannot play a CD on your computer. Please try the following: 1. Make sure the IDE cables are properly seated in the CD Drive. Also try to reseat the power cable connecting your power supply to the CD Drive. 2. Make sure the CDROM is recognized by your system. To check if its recognize go to system properties then hardware. Choose Device manager and look for CD/DVD drives - check if it has a yellow question mark on it. If it has install a driver for that device or use windows update to update the driver. 3. If you can find another CD Drive. Try installing it on your system. 4. Install or update your windows media player. You can also use VLC player.

Ripping cds and faulty webcam


Re the Ripping problem, for Win7:

To rip music from an audio CD

  1. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Center.
  2. If Media Center is not in full-screen mode, click the Maximize button a9bd23ff-99f8-42fd-a627-c155b7e87ddd_75.jpg in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. Insert an audio CD into the CD-ROM drive on your computer. The CD will start playing automatically.
  4. On the Now Playing screen, click Rip CD. (If you navigated away from the Now Playing screen, you can always return there from the Windows Media Center start screen by scrolling to Music, clicking Music library, clicking Albums, and then clicking the CD you inserted.)
  5. If this is the first time you've ripped a CD, follow the instructions on the CD Ripping Options screen. (You won't see this screen the next time you rip a CD.)
  6. In the Rip CD dialog box, click Yes to rip the tracks to your computer. The ripped music files are automatically added to your Music library.
Re the webcam problem, would need more info. Do you know if the laptop has webcam software installed at all?

Windows Vista Premium. Trying to rip a cd to my computer. Unable to do so. CD plays fine if i play music from the cd itself. Tried Itunes 1st. Rips about 12 secs of audio for each song. Says complete....


maybe the windows has this security issues. coz from my point of view windows vista is dedicated on security. so that's why you cannot rip most of the songs very well.

Windows Media Player not responding


go to microsoft.com and download the set up for your version of media player. Uninstall the one you have now and then reinstall from the set up you have downloaded. I would also recomend you down load the k-lite codec pack to beef up your WMP install.....goodluck.

How do I fix a drm problem in windows media player 11


DRM, which specifies whether tracks copied from CDs in Windows Media Audio (WMA) format are protected files. A license, which helps protect the copyrights of artists by preventing unauthorized distribution, is required to play protected files.
If you're trying to play your copy-protected files on a new computer, you can migrate your protected music from one computer to another by doing the following:
Windows Media Player 7.1 or later
1.
Try to play the copy-protected file again.
2.
In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
3.
Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
Windows Media Player 7
1.
Download the Personal License Update Wizard for Windows Media Player (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0048.mspx)and follow the instructions.
2.
Try to play the copy-protected file again.
3.
In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
4.
Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
A license can be migrated ten times. After this limit is reached, you will receive an error when you try to migrate the license again (for more information, see the Windows Media Player FAQ). When this occurs, you will need to rip the file from the CD again.
note.gif Note If you still have the CD in your possession, you can rip the tracks from the CD again, but with copy protection turned off.
