Why do my CD drives can't recognize an Audio CD?

I can’t do anything but listen to this CD in my Hi-Fi!

Programs (musicmatch, wmp9, winamp, ezcdxtractor, etc…) simply say that drive is Empty! Nor even with iso backup programs!

Computer allergic CD??? This CD is mine… but what if it scratches someday???
What’s wrong and how can I backup my CD to my computer?


The CD might be copy-protected. However, have you tried the CD in other drives?

What is the name of the music cd
most likely it is protected therfore it might be hardware dependent…
Try anydvd go to settings \cd then make sure there is a tick in “remove cd digital audio protection”
