Try headphones in the same socket or outlet.. Move the speakers or headphones to a different device (pc or TV set) for testing.. Make sure the speakers or headphones are plugged into the correct outlets.. Make sure the volume on the speakers or headphones is turned up.. If you are running windows XP (or whatever) go to control panel & then 'Sounds & Audio devices' then select sounds tab (at top) then select 'critical stop' then try the 'play sound' arrow at the bottom middle of the window.. if it runs, then the operating system is probably ok..

Pls report the results of the above for further help.. If you need further assistance, pls provide the operating system you are using and the brand & model of pc.. also if you are using speakers or headphones.. Rgds,

Check the control panel and see what your default sound device is set for.

Do you have a third party sound card like a sound blaster plugged into here?

How to transfer windows media player muisc to iTunes


You may have some music on Windows Media Player, and you want to add them into iTunes library for your new iPod or iPhone. Or you may want to move your iTunes bought music to Windows Media Player for portable devices such as Zen, Zune, Phone, Sansa, Archos, MP3/MP4 Player, etc. It’s easy to do that. And this guide will show the steps to do the job.

Part1. Transfer Windows Media Player music to iTunes

Step1. Open iTunes and select the File -- Add Folder to Library menu.

Step2. Browse to your Windows Media Player music folder. iTunes will ask you where your songs are located, which by default will be in your My Music folder on Windows XP, or in your Music folder on Vista.

Step3. Convert Windows Media Player songs to AAC format (.m4a). If you have files in WMA format, you will be prompted to convert those WMA files to AAC. This is a necessary step if you want those tracks available to play on your iPod or iPhone. If you have a large music library in WMA format, converting WMA to AAC may take a long time. Plan to do this at a time when you can leave your computer on and walk away to do something else for awhile. You can also import your WMA files as MP3 instead, which also allows them to work with your iPod, but makes them more portable if you buy something else in the future.

iTunes doesn't modify your original music files from Windows Media Player. It leaves those songs in their original location and makes copies in your iTunes music folder.


Part2. Transfer iTunes music to Windows Media Player

Because iTunes music has DRM protection, you can't easily import the music into Windows Media Player by drag and drop. There are two ways to transfer protected music from iTunes to Windows Media Player.

Method1. You can use iTunes to burn the music to a blank CD at first, then use Windows Media Player to rip the music CD, the DRM protection will be remove during the ripping process, then you can rip the CD into WMP library. This way is good for tranferring a few music. For large mount of music, it would take a really long time to transfer music.

Method2. If you don't have blank CD disk or you have many iTunes music need to transferred to windows media player. You can use DRM Media Converter. It can legally convert the protected iTunes music to non-protected MP3 music, then you can easily drag and drop the MP3 music into Windows Media Player.

Step1. Download and install the DRM Media Converter , the file size is about 7 MB. I have scaned it with Norton Virus protector and AVG spayware protector, it's safe without any warning.

Step2. Run the DRM Media Converter, Click Add to import iTunes music, which by default will be in My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music .Or you can run iTunes, click Edit -- Advanced Tab, there you will see where your iTunes media folder location.

Step3. Set the output audio format as "MP3 - MPEG Layer-3 Audio (*.mp3)"

Step4. Click Start to run the conversion, it will take a little bit time to finish the job, then click Browse to located your converted mp3 files, drag them into Windows Media Player, done.

T6216 CAN'T USE CD BURNER ERROR MESSAGES INDICATES NO CD DRIVE


Sounds like your CD drive is gone. Try inserting a program cd and see if it reads it. You can also switch the cable attached to the cd drive. Make sure you get a power light on the cd drive when you start the PC, if not you can try a different power connector from the power supply. Hope this helps.

Waves not playing yet mp3s do.


Nopes. What seems to be was a suspended application installation (probably you or somebody qho used your computer just before it happenned). You can try System Restore. It should roll back that kind of file extension change. Hope it helps, good luck.
Solution #2: You can do as well if the system restore does not work to reasign the software that is going to open that file extension (so far I know the change has been made to MP3, WAV, MIDI.). That you can do it by opening my computer, then go to "TOOLS", inside of it go to "FOLDER OPTIONS", then choose the tab "FILE TYPES". There, scroll down until you see the extension "MP3" and place your mouse arrow on it. Now below it you are going to see two choices that you can click on, click on "CHANGE" and choose your favorite program. Again, I hope it helps...
