I built my first HTPC a few months ago and after testing everything worked as it should. Still does but for one thing. Since a couple of weeks when I insert a music cd. it plays automatically as programmed, but it only plays the first track. I couldn´t find a fix anywhere so switched from Media Player to VLC. However, had the same problem with VLC. Has anyone the same problem and sorted it and if so - how? Thanks in advance for any help

Can you manually play a later track?

 

Can you rip the CD to MP3?

 

Since you're having the same issue with two different software packages I'd say you're looking at either a driver or hardware problem.

Hi Kilroy,

Tks for the reply. Manually playing another track is no problem but when I do it only plays that particular track and not the follwing ones. Ripping is also no problem. I have checked my drivers and they are in order. I Can´t see it would be a hardware problem as the hardware would either work or it wouldn´t.In this case it works but not the complete CD: I feel it must be a software problem but for the love of Mike, I can´t find the fault anywhere. Microsoft isn´t alway logical so finding a fault or a hiccup ia not easy. Thanks anyway

If it does this with all CDs, then I would think it's the OD.

Hi guys (and Gals of course)

Problem solved!! Via another site i found a tip for this problem that apparantly plagued many, not just me. On VLC at the bottom of the screen are a number of buttons, one of which is for repeating the given track or not. This was switched on meaning the first track was repeated. I switched this back to non-repeating and problem solved. Can´t remeber switching it on at all but at sometime I must have diddled when I should have daddled.

Any way thanks to you who tried to help.
