Have you tried cleaning the lens on the player? You can use some alcohol and a q-tip and try cleaning it first. Alternatley, you can buy lens cleaning discs, that'll do the job for you. You might want to try one of those before buying a new drive.Darkness_Reaper said:ya, but realplayer and windows media dont recognize a cd, when i go to the cd option its says "pleaz insert cd"
i just got a bunch of cd's to so this sucks
CDex would only be useful for ripping the CD to mp3 or wav. I only mentioned it incase your CD ripper wasn't reading the drive, which happens sometimes. Sorry if I confused you.Darkness_Reaper said:o.k, just dl cdex....nothing really happened with the cd
If you don't know what to look for inside of the drive, then just go buy a CD lens cleaning kit. You should be able to find a good one for under $10-15, and even if you end up replacing your drive it'll be usefull in the future.ummm, as i have said before, i am fairly computer illiterate. how would i get in to clean the lens?
Ok, so I take it that you are, in fact, trying to rip your CDs to mp3, correct? Or are you just trying to play them?im trying to get cds like pink floyd on
