Did you uninstall the program before you re-installed it? I believe you should always do that...
Also, have there been firmware upgrades? That destroyed my poor little LG DVD/CD RW running Nero 6 OEM. I will open a separate topic unless a reader can give me an idea.
Make sure your Windows Installer program is still there and functioning, and that you have all the updates. Check your history to see if it did anything to your program.
I had downloaded some music from Napster and then deleted Napster (suspected intrusions). To test your problem, I opened win media player, and the only song it will play is the demo. I tried to play others but they want me to download Napster and I just don't want to, but sure want to listen to Beck!!!
Then I just got a Win Media message saying I needed to refresh some protected files so I can continue to use them from my online store. Does anybody trust Napster?
Idon't trust my machine either. I have to type in my password to hotmail twice EVERY TIME I logon. Feels like a keylogger is there... Variety of protection programs occasionally find and clean "bad things" and machine running slower than it should. Description in my profile if anyone is interested.
So, I didn't get the same message you got. But instead of trying to manipulate drivers, I would just try to uninstall and then do a reinstall. PS: and I was guilty of this: are all your plugs connected?
I think it's a good idea to download another player. If THAT doesn't work, they maybe you do have hardware problems. Besides the control panel, do you have any software to test your hardware? Bleeping has a whole list of free programs... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html
