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?

Nicola

I downloaded another 3rd pa

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

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.:)
