I just finished installing a new DVD writer in my Dell Dimension 4600. When I insert an audio CD and click play I get this message

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel"

I originially had one CD-ROM and one NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A. I've replaced the CD-ROM with an HP 1170i DWD writer. Also put in a new power supply because the old one did not have an SATA plug.

Now I get this message with both drives. They are powered and recognize a CD but do not play.

Any help?

Thanks
Mark

Right click the CD/DVD drive, select Explore, right click on the file, select "open with" , select "choose program, pick what you want, click the box "always use this program..................".

I am able to open a CD and as dpunisher instructs, play indvidual files. I can't (on the old or new drive) right click on the drive and select play. When I do it gives me the error message.

Thanks for the suggestions and help.
