Resolved Question

My Media Player will not copy or burn CDs

by lindylou42 / May 11, 2012 4:12 PM PDT

Can someone please help me. My Media Player will not allow me to copy or burn CDs. I got error message cood1od2 and a message saying The error may have been triggered by an error in another program or component of Windows.
The original error code cood2721 The requested action cannot be performed because a problem occurred with the Windows Media DRM component on your computer.

Windows Media DRM

Windows does not want you to copy a "protected" CD.
In the USA and most other countries it is illegal to do so.

Something I don't use WMP for.

Some folk get upset but I use other software. From CDBURNERXP to IMGBURN (these are free, found with google) I see no reason to spend one second trying to fix WMP.

My media player is nero media player. It does copy or burns cds properly. I think you may use this.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
