Hi, :thumbsup:

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP home. The sound works fine on anything coming in over the Internet. I can also play any stored music just fine, however when I place a CD into the player it recognizes the CD is there but I cannot get any sound to come from it. I have played around with the properties but still no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Thanks!!

By the way the last time I tried to burn a CD it worked just fine. Of course that has been awhile but it has also been awhile since I attempted to play a CD in the machine.

There is a small connecter cord that runs from the ROM drive into your motherboard? Is that plugged in?

It should be noted that newer computers do not utilize that connection. They use the newer 80 wire flat IDE ribbon cable. Which could also be going bad or loose

Hey, try going into your volume controls and make sure your media player volume is turned up, or that it's not on mute. Not sure but that may help.

A dumb question, thewall, but are you using the same media player to play the CD as stored/downloaded audio? Which player is it?

Ha! I just now took a look at the date of the original post. :thumbsup:

I assume you've got CD audio back!
