Thanx coolcolors but no luck, yet. What used to happen when i put in a cd was the autoplay box came up. You know the one, it has some if not all the installed options, i.e winamp in it. You scroll down to what you want the cd to open with and bingo. It opens with that selected program. So what is happening now is opening up a screen for that drive only. This is what it looks like now: (see attachment). I have never seen this box before. As you may see, they are the songs on the cd and even if i right click open, they wont play. If all else fails, do you think a repair install would fix this problem? Thanx.
