Hi All,

Just a question out of curiosity. My wife bought the new Rascal Flatts music CD, it says its an Enhanced CD, it plays fine on our CD Player, but won't play on my PC in my cd-rom drive. Is this what an Enhanced CD does? All of our other CDs play just fine on my PC.

Thanks,
Ken :thumbsup:

Thanks Koan,

I am going to look into it the first chance I get.

Are you a Navy guy?? Spent 3 years on the USS Columbus CA-74, a long time ago, I think I'm shaveing with it now.

Ken :thumbsup:

Aye! Thirty years and retired.


I stopped shaving then. Get a shave and a haircut once a year now, if I remember...

Try this on the CD.

Press and HOLD either shift button, when you load up the CD. This will prevent the auto-run feature to start up. Explore the contents of the CD, to find the music, and you should be able to play them. When you do, then you can create a shortcut that will point to it, for the next time that you insert the CD in. After you do this the first time, it should remember it as a new default, and you should not have to hold the shift button again, when you re-insert the CD.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

JE services,

Thanks for your reply, I already tried that. What happens is that when I insert the cd in the cd-rom drive, it autoplays to a screen that you have to log on to to view the media files, these files are just short video and audio clips about the band members and them making the cd. When I hold the shift key down, and use the explore function, it takes me right back to the sign up screen. I think this cd is just coded so as not to allow any copying.

Thanks,
Ken :thumbsup:
