Try this. Some CD/DVD drives have a PLAY button besides the eject. That's all you need to do.
I bought a Maxell CD-340 lens cleaner to clean my CD-ROM and CD-RW drives on my comp (presario running WinME). WMP9 loads the cd info but won't play the tracks, giving me this error message "Windows Media Player cannot find the specified file. Be sure the path is typed correctly. If it is, the file does not exist at the specified location, or the computer where the file is stored is offline." I've also tried to play it with the latest versions of RealPlayer and Winamp and those programs won't even load the info for the cd. It's worked on the Xbox, so I know the disk isn't faulty. Is there something I'm overlooking? Or a media player I haven't tried that works better?
I've skimmed through maxell.com and wmp site for answers and have come up with nothing. Maybe I missed something.
