Re: I can\\\\\\\'t play singers disc

A window appears that seems to be a micro soft window that tells me to insert a disc. When I put it back in, the same thing happens.
I am a casual user for personal enjoyment. Since I converted to Win7, this is the first time that I have ever inserted a CD to play using the \\\\\\\"singers disc\\\\\\\" function.
With Win7 I used it now and then and everything always worked fine.
Any ideas.

Tnx, Phil
The first thing I would do is check to see if there is an updated driver for the cd drive. You can also test the drive through Hoster but I don\\\'t remember how to direct you to that procedure with the older version of Hoster. You can also try a cd without opening Hoster and see if it will recognize it. If it won\'t it may be the driver as I mentioned above or a faulty cd drive.
