    Vista and Media Player not playing cds

    Hi there,

    I have a really, really odd problem.
    Media player stops playing CDs exactly 1 minute and 3 seconds in.
    It says:

    Windows Media Player cannot read the CD. The disc might be dirty or damaged.
    Turn on Error correction, and then try again.

    I've turned on error correction, it didn't help.

    Any ideas?

    I downloaded another 3rd pa

    RE: Vista and Media Player not playing cds

    We both need help! I'm having the same issue in both Windows Media player
    and the interface that came with my sound card (Creative Sound Blaster XF
    Extreme Gamer). Just over a minute into a CD, I receive an error and it
    quits playing. Can someone help us with this issue?

    Has anyone found a reason or fix for this, It happens in both Nero and Windows Media Player it is on a new machine I'm assuming its a vista issue although if both other posters are also using a pioneer drive then maybe thats the issue?

    Help Please !

    because ours was a new build I took it back to the store they examined it tried to fix it (including trying another pioneer drive) but nothing worked in the end they put it down to a hardware clash and replaced the pioneer with an LG and now everything is happily working

    I have hp pavillion. Installed vista ultimate 64 and I had same issue then read that i need to upgrade my nvidia drivers. I upgraded video and mother board using this link http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us (mine is 6150) and made sure to install media shiled as other forum noted this was cause of issue.

    Working happily now. Good Luck!

    PROBLEM SOLVED!

    I found out by going to the manufacturer's website, which in my case was HP, and downloading updated versions of all my drivers and software it fixed the problem immediately.

    The problem puzzled me for three days because the cd played on other computers but only on mine for 1 minute and 3 seconds.

    No worries now just download updated drivers and software from the manufacturer's website. You might want to go to DEVICE MANAGER to see your drivers and what versions you have to compare to the manufacturer's list.

    No Problemo.
