Windows Media Player 12 Problem

I try to rip a CD to my computer, but it shows this message:

Windows Media Player cannot rip one or more tracks from the CD.

Then when I click on web help, it shows this:

Windows Media Player error

You've encountered an error message while using Windows Media Player. Additional information is not currently available for this error.

A common reason why files don't play is that you might have the wrong codec on your computer. For more information about codecs, see Codecs: frequently asked questions.

Now, I have no idea what this means, does anybody know what this means??

Am I missing codecs?? If so, how can I get them back?? I do remember deleting the Media Player file, when I type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft in my start menu search box. Only because someone told me to, after I renamed it, because a new one was created, so someone told me to delete the old one, now I'm having this problem and so many more with Windows Media Player 12 for Windows 7. Can somebody please help me!!

God Bless
