My Windows XP Media Center computer can't recognize my CDs, DVDs, or PC games. It's not that the CD won't go in, its just that my computer doesn't know it exists. I checked the inside and all the chords...

unplug it (data cable), start the computer, when loaded to windows shut down again and plug the drive back in. Also try a different port if you can. Drives don't last forever and they are very cheap so if you can't get it to work get a new one.

Windows xp media center error occurs when trying to record programs

When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.

Try first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.

The media center is part of the WMC operative system. You can also reinstall media center alone using add remove programs, then Add remove windows components. Often that does not work, and you need to use a Windows MCE setup disk to fix the problem.

Sound cuts out on one speaker

Are you able to get sound on the speakers without the media center? In case if the problem is just not limited to media center-Then it could be a sound driver issue...!
In case if the sound works fine outside the media center then its a setting problem with the media center.i suggest you run the first run wizard to reset the media center.
To reset the media center
1)Navigate to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\eHome
locate the file- ehshell.config-Just right click and delete it
2) delete the following registry keys
open registry editor
Start > Run > type regedit and hit enter
it opens a registry editor window
locate the following keys
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings
right click on these keys and delete them..You just have to dig down to these keys and delete them in the left hand pane. and then close the registry editor and restart the system.
After the reboot windows will ask you to reconfigure the media center-you just have to follow the wizard to complete the process...This should do the trick and should avoid a complete reinstallation of windows.
Good Luck.
