Dvd Rom Drive no longer plays audio cds.

  wesparmalee 20:45 02 Nov 07

For some reason my DVD Rom drive has suddenly stopped playing normal audio cds.It always used to play them without any problems at all.Everything is running normally when checked in device manager, so no faults there.Whenever i go to My computer, then click the drive to autoplay the disc, it just says "please insert a disc into drive (J)".I really don't know what else to do.Any ideas?Thanks.

1. do not trust device manager
uninstall reinstall the drive reboot and retry.

2. are you using an audio cable from the Cd to your sound card.
In device manager r click drive - properties - properties tab -tick box enable digital Cd audio - press ok.
