I have a brand new, top of the line HP Envoy Laptop running Windows 10.

When I put the CD into the laptop, some don't Autoplay.

I'll go into 'My PC', then look at the CD Drive, then look at the listed Files from the CD, and they show me the following.
CDPLUS, IMAGES, PICTURES, SOURCE, XTRAS, METSUPRO.

When I click on any of these, all I get is "No Media Available".

It just won't play the music.

Specifically, I just tried to listen to David Bowies, 'Scary Monsters', but this has happened to a few other recently purchased CD's of his.

What's going on here?

Can you help me get these to play on my PC?

(They DO play on my home Bose unit, and in my car).

I don't know what else to do here...


Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank You,


CTwoodnutt
Check your autoplay setting in Windows 10.

Go to the start window, select settings, then devices, then autoplay. Make sure it is set to "on".

What settings allow the window to open for users to choose an action from view to play to ......?
We set auto play to play all devices and media and we have to go to the D drive and click on the media or device to open it.

If you haven't chosen a default in the control panel, that window will open after you click the little sidebar that appears. If you specify a default, like Windows media player, it will go directly to that application and play.

Let me start a new question that does not involve CD-DVD.

Windows Media Player is the default and when we try to click the D drive Windows gives a message that it could not access the path......or we have limited access.


If we right click the drive then open in a new window, there is a list of files and the music is one of them.
Or we can open WMP and there in the middle it says insert a CD.


Too bad none of that works like it did with XP and Vista. We upgrade to 7 and problems galore.

My comments applied to Windows 10, and when I wrote that I was assuming that's what you had. Perhaps because the original poster referenced that.

Sorry, I've never used Windows 7 (just "upgraded" to 10 from XP a few months ago), so I can't speak to your issue from any experience with it on that OS.

When you say that you get a message "that it could not access the path", it almost sounds like an issue with the drive itself or, more specifically, it's driver. Have you checked in the device manager to verify that it's driver is loaded and the device working properly?

Sorry I can't help more. With Windows 7, I'm mostly shooting in the dark.
