There are two types of music cds. One is still a data disk meaning will be able to add more songs and the songs keep their file names. The other type is compatible for most cd players but once it is made, songs can not be added afterward.

Open up the cd on your computer and look at the songs. If the songs have their original file names then you have used the wrong format. If the songs are lists in tracks (Track 1, Track 2, etc.), then it is the correct format and the problem is the disk or the cd player(s) you tried it on won't accept it.

THE CD/DVD PLAYER ON MY HP PAVILION a1110n WILL NOT PLAY ANYTHING. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS SPINNING BUT, IT MUST NOT BE READING. I TRIED TO UPDATE THE DRIVERS BUT, I STILL CAN'T GET ANYTHING TO WORK. THE...


First of all check if the drivers are properly installed in device manager:-
Right click on Computer and then click Properties--device manager, expand CD/DVD Rom drive and check if the driver is installed.
If driver is installed right click on it and click on delete and then restart the computer.

If the above step doesn't help then try to delete upper/lower filter in registry:-
Click Start--Run type 'regedit' and press enter and now expand the following-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
now on the right panel right click the 'upper filter' and click delete and then right click the 'lower filter' and then click delete.

If these steps doesn't help then it means there is a hardware fault with your dvd/cd drive and you need to replace the same.

How to Fix a Scratched CD


Clean the disc. Even if a CD isn’t actually scratched or scuffed, dust, oil, and other surface contaminants can prevent it from playing properly. Thus cleaning the disc should always be your first move. Ads by Google

  • Run warm water over the damaged disc to remove dust.
  • If there is stubborn dirt or grease on the disc, gently rub it with your finger while you are washing it, and use a gentle detergent or liquid soap (with the water) or rubbing alcohol (in place of water). Any time you rub or wipe a CD, you should do so by starting at or near the center of the disc and rubbing straight outward toward the edge to prevent further scratching.
  • Shake the water off and let the disc air-dry (do not dry it with a towel or cloth, and don't sun-dry it either).
  • 2Try to play the disc. Many times a good cleaning is all that is needed. If, however, problems persist after cleaning, try to play the disc in a different CD player. Some players handle scratches better than others; computer CD drives and car stereos tend to be the best.
  • 3Burn a new disc. If you can get the CD to work in one CD player - especially your computer’s - but not in others, try burning a new disc. The CD burner on your computer may be able to read the CD well enough to produce a perfect copy. You may wish to try this even if the CD doesn’t play correctly on the computer.
  • 4Locate the scratch. Actually repairing the disc will be easier if you can figure out where the offending scratch is. Visually inspect the CD’s playing surface for scratches or scuffs. Scratches that run perpendicular to the CD’s spiral - that is, those that run generally from the center to the rim - may

    After changeing few settings I can no longer play cd's/dvd's


    Hi,

    If you have system restore set up, you can go back to before you changed your settings. If you are using Windows XP, click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Choose Restore my system to an earlier time, and click Next. Click on a day before the change, and time, click Next, and follow through the steps. If this does not work for you let me know, and I will try to assist you further.

    Thanks

    CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning in Mp3 or WAv


    most older car and home stereos will NOT play mp3's or wav files reguardless what kind of CD they are written on.
    You need a newer stereo OR convert the mp3s to cd audio and then burn them to any recordable cd.. (audio cds can be read by any cd player but will take more space)
