T61 cd/dvd audio,burning etc. functions no longer perform.

When I place a CD or DVD into the laptop I can hear the DVD multi working but the default Windows Media Player does not respond. All other computer functions OK. Whats up?  Thanks, MDO

I can bring up the media player manually,but it does not perform any functions, because it doesn't  recognize a CD or DVD has been inserted into the laptop.For instance, I click the rip or burn commands and the player instructs me to insert the CD. I do, but  the player doesn't respond. Thanks.

Is DLA enabled on your drive?  I've seen that cause some pretty strange problems.

 

Right click on the drive icon and look for a DLA tab.

Downloaded VLC, computer indicates download successful,however there is no icon for the VLC player. when  attempting  to play CD through WMP I recieved the following: cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file. Thanks
