Audio Playback Issues. (Vista)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Before I get started, I had two computer die on me and don't have the money for Windows 7 now...

CD's will not play on my rig, DVD's game etc. play fine but I get an error everytime I put an Audio CD into the drive and try to play it with either Winamp OR Windows Media Player. I tried updating drivers, but the Blu-Ray I have has latest. I tried reinstalling from scratch (The Blu-Ray Drive), still not working. I Googled everything about this same issue and there were multiple threads about deleting registry keys labeled "Upper Filter" and "Lower Filter" but neither is listed when I edit registry. And I also tried using Microsoft Auto Fix program that was linked in several threads with no luck. I just don't understand why everything else works, but Audio CD's.

Any ideas?

I don't know if this helps too much; but have you tried reinstalling the BD Drive's drivers? Maybe you should install the newest drivers available (if you don't have them)?

I did reinstall the drivers with no luck. I even uninstalled the device via Manager, and let Windows find it - then updated them again with no luck. I am stumped!

I think I may just bite the bullet and upgrade to Windows 7.

Shouldn't matter, they are both using the same driver base and drivers. What works in W7 should work in Vista. It makes me wonder if there is a defect and that the drive isn't reading CDs right. In drives that read multiple medium types (DVD/CD/BR) they each use a different diode/laser setup for each medium. It makes perfect sense too, each medium uses a different light. I don't remember what CD is but DVD should be red and BR is obviously blue. If CDs are the only thing that has issue it is probably the hardware. =(
