Run Windows media player troubleshooter and check if it helps:
The issue may occur if the required codec is not installed on the computer:
I would like to verify what ripping setting you are using. Does the default setting work? In addition, I suggest testing with another CD. It will help determine if it is the CD's problem.
You can also try the following steps:
a) Open Windows Media Player.
b) Click Tools\options\devices\ then choose properties of the CD reader and enable Digital for both ripping and playback, uncheck "Use error correction", click OK.
c) Click Rip music tab, change the Audio Quality to another value (higher or lower than 128kbps). Click OK and then try to rip.
Rebuild windows media player.
a. Exit Windows Media Player.
b. Click Start, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.
c. Select all the files in the folder, and then click Delete on the File menu.
Note You do not have to delete the folders that are in this folder.
c. Restart Windows Media Player.
Note Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.
