Hi,

 

 

Welcome to Microsoft community and thank you for posting the question. I will surely help you to find a resolution regarding the issue. As per your description, audio CD is not recognized by Windows Media Player.

 

 

1.       Did you try enabling autorun to see if Windows media player is able to recognize the audio CD’s?

2.       Have you checked the issue using a different computer?

 

 

 

As of now, I would suggest you to try the steps mentioned below.

 

I would suggest you to check the CD is corrupted by checking in a different computer.

 

 

Method 1: Make Windows media player as the default player for audio CDs

Now test the issue.

 

 

 

Method 2: Troubleshoot AutoPlay problems

Method 3: Disable and re-enable Windows media player feature

b. Switch to Classic View.

c. Click on Programs and Features.

d. In the left pane, click on Turn Windows Features on or off.

e. Expand Media features.

f. Uncheck Windows media player (which in turn disables Windows media center) and click yes.

g. Click Ok to save changes and that will take a while.

h. Restart the computer.

i. Once the computer is restarted, re-enable the features back by repeating the same steps.

I put the CD into the drive and Windows Media Player reads it.  Windows Media Player 12 doesn't  display the title of the CD.   I'm also trying to rip the CD and nothing happens.  Under Media Usage Rights, it reads the file is not protected.
