Audio CD will not play due to The MCI Service?
For some reason my Audio CD's will not play in my Normal Pioneer CD-ROM DR-A14S where the cable is pluged into the motherboard for CD audio (I also have an Acer burner).
Now it comes up with an error message (see below), and i reinstall both the Soundblaster PCI128 Drivers and uninstalled the CD-ROM drive to let Windows 2000 Pro reinstall them, works fine but still no Audio!
What does this all mean!?
The error message reads:
"The MCI (CD Audio) service or the CD-ROM driver is not responding. CD Player cannot start. Check the 'Sounds and Multimedia' control panel, 'Hardware' tab to make sure the drivers are installed and active."

here is the fix ...
well took a while to figure it out ..
What I did:
I hooked up my machine to another machine with the same OS (Win2k for e.g.)
shared the WINNT directory ..
copied all /winnt/inf files to the faulty machine.
then used the error displaying machine ADD HARDWARE -- NEW DEVICE then OTHERS and suddenly all MCI and Legacy
codecs were available to install.
I then pointed the install location to
and the driver were succesfully installed
(you only need MCI Audio)
Repeat this method until you have all the codecs or devices you want!
Note: after reboot all will be sweet.
I have no explanation why removing the soundcard and codecs and so on did not fix it prior -- nor did using the Win2k install disc fix it.
Hope it helps ..
