Talking Cd Rom Won't Read Audio Cd's [Hp; 8770; win98SE]

sponsored links

 
It's been a loooog time since I posted this problem (October 2001). I received so much help so I had to come back and let you guys know I finally found a fix. Looks like my original post is no longer available so I have pasted a copy of what I kept from it along with the replies in hopes that this will help someone else.

When I put a audio CD in my cdrom drive it does not recognize the cd. It states please insert audio cd. This is a CD RW drive and I can do anything else with it. It still writes audio and data cd's and reads data cd's it just won't play an audio CD.
Anyone have any insite I would appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance.

its a long shot but i had a similar problem.
with a cdrom you can set it to digital audio or ****ogue. one is the lead that comes from the cdrom to the motherboard.

go into settings, device manager (i think) and select the cdrom under advanced options change the checkbox related to digital or ****ogue audio and see what happens.

worth a try m8

Try searching your hard drive for mcicda.drv and renaming it if you find it.

Thanks folks,
Sorry to say but neither of these worked.

Under Multimedia Cd Music I can't make a change from digital to ****oge. This area is grayed out.

Keymaster I renamed the file you suggested and this had no effect also.

I did notice that under Multimedia cd music, the drive letter is incorrect and when I change it to the correct drive letter it won't stay it reverts back to the incorrect drive letter when I close the window. This incorrect drive letter also appears in my cd player window when it opens and it also reverts back to the same incorrect drive letter when I close it.

Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ms.A.

Try checking your aspi layer with aspichk.exe from www.adaptec.com

What puzzles me is that it states operating system is windows 95? I'm running windows 98se SP2. Also this caution appears on the download page of the aspichk.exe utility:

Caution:
Do NOT install ASPI32.EXE with Windows 2000, Windows ME, Easy CD Creator 4.x, or with Windows Media Player 7.0. If you have one of these applications (or operating systems), you will be using a different aspi layer that will conflict with the one provided in this file.
---------------------------------------------
Windows Media Player 7.0 is installed on my system.

Thank you so very much for your help.

Ms.A.

Keymaster

There seems to be no problem with your ASPI Layer. Although it list Win95 the version number (4.10.2222) is Win98SE SP2. What CD-RW is it.


Keymaster
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This drive letter only sets the default drive the media players will use in Windows. It should have no effect on wheter the Audio CD is recognized. However, it could be a symptom of the same problem. Does the drive exists it reverts to?



bowlisha
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Looking at the name shown for the cd rom drive in multimedia I think it is Mitsumi CR-4804 TE.
Thank you Keymaster.


bowlisha
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Originaly this drive did not exist. Someone else tried to help me from another forum and had me download and install what I beleive were some generic drivers. MSCDEX.EXE
After I applied this a new drive letter of D appeared. I think this is when the drive letter changed from what it originaly was M to D and won't change back. But that is only on my cd player window and the cd window in multimedia and My Computer also shows this new drive D. I changed the drive letter back to M under System CdRom and it stayed. Also in system, properties, the details now show D drive is using msdos compatibility mode file system. Before applying MSCDEX.EXE the details were blank.

Keymaster
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are you installing drivers in your autoexec.bat and/or config.sys? If so you should remove them. Post the contents of both files. The real mode drivers you are loading may be conflicting with Windows protected mode drivers.

bowlisha

I hope this is right. This is the Autoexec.bat contents that I got from C/ Dosboot folder.

Since you're running Win98SE, put a REM in front of the lines "MSCDEX /D:MSCD001 /V" in autoexec.bat and "device=c:\cdrom\OakCdRom.sys /D:IDECD000" & "DEVICE=C:\CDPRO\VIDE-CDD.SYS /D:MSCD001".

Keymaster
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks Van.
Bowlisha, also REM:
call c:\dosboot\drivers.bat
call c:\dosboot\sPower

Some of these lines exist in the autoexec.bat and config.sys. The easiest way to rem them is to run msconfig.sys and select the autoexec.bat and config.sys tabs and simply uncheck the lines.


bowlisha
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you both.
I have made the changes by unchecking the items you both suggested. It got rid of the D drive letters everywhere. I have only three drive letters showing again C, M, and E. This was the way it was originaly but now my cd player window opens under E drive and in multimedia under cd music it also shows E drive. Both these should be M which is what is showing under system properties,device manger, cdrom. When I change the drive letter in my cd player window and in multimedia cd music the letters revert back to E when I close the windows. The cd player still shows "Data or no disc loaded." "Please insert an audio compact disc".

Many thanks.
Ms.A.


Keymaster
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Try also REMing or unchecking the line: call c:\hp\specials\initial
I'm not sure what this does, but it may be necessarry just for DOS. Is this an HP PC, or CD drive, etc. (what is from HP)?

What is your E drive?

You can get a Diagnostic program, the lastest firmware and manuals for your drive from: ***********.mitsumi.com/indexusa.html

You may want to just remove the drive in Device Manager and reboot it to re-install to clear up any problems with the Real Mode drivers.


Van Nugent
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I notice in your system file(s) you have 2 lines "device=c:\cdrom\OakCdRom.sys /D:IDECD000". Remember to REM out all two of them.

Thank you both.
I will be back tomorrow and post the results of your suggestions as I won't have time to work with this tonight.

This is an HP 8770 PC. The CDRW came already installed.

I also have a SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-612. This is what runs on the E drive. This also came already installed.

Thanks again.
Ms.A.





I found the fix for this here ***********.computerhope.com/issues/ch000176.htm

The issue (see below) was the driver not installed or corrupt. I have no idea which one it was but after following the instructions given for that issue my cd drive is playing audio cd's once again.

Big thanks to Keymaster and Van for all your time and trouble

Ms. A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Issue:

Windows 9x error "Data or no disk loaded" when audio CD inserted.

Cause:

This issue can be caused by one of the following two possibilities.

Bad or non audio CD is inserted.
MCI CD audio driver not installed or corrupt.
Solution:

Bad or non audio CD is inserted.

Ensure that the CD you have currently in the computer is not bad or being misread by the computer by inserting another known good audio CD into the computer.

If another audio CD works it is likely either that the CD is dirty or may be an enhanced CD incompatible with the CD Audio player. Steps on properly cleaning a CD can be found on our cleaning page.

MCI CD audio driver not installed or corrupt.

If no audio CD is working in the computer but other CDs work fine it is likely that the MCI CD audio driver is not installed or corrupt on the computer. Note if no CDs are working see document CH000227.

To reinstall / install the MCI CD audio drivers follow the below steps:

Click Start / Settings / Control Panel
Double-click on Multimedia
Click the Advanced tab or Device tab.
Double-click Media Control Devices.
Double-click CD Audio Device (Media Control).
If this device is present and you no audio CDs are working click remove on the general tab in CD Audio Device (Media Control) properties.
Close out of all open Windows to get back to the Control panel
In Control panel double-click Add New Hardware.
Click Next, select No, click Next -- In the box listing the available hardware select Sound Video and Game controllers and click Next.
In the Manufactures box select Microsoft MCI.
In the Models box select CD Audio Device (Media Control).
Click Next and Finish.
Once Windows has completed the installation of the new device reboot the computer.

Thumbs up

Well thank you for that, as this is not a common prob but one we do run into. I laways thought perhaps it related to the cdfs.vxd file but see it was the MCI as Keymaster suspected. Tis nice to know how to properly reinstall it.

For those of you who don't want to read thru the entire post here's the solution
