I have no idea what has happened to my CD/DVD player in Vista, however, I finally got the CD/DVD to work again by updating all the drivers on my computer (what a pain in the butt doing that)! Anyway, not I have one more slight problem that I cannot figure out. When I used to insert any type of music CD, it would automatically open Windows Media Player and play the CD. Now, when I insert a CD...nothing! So, I have to go to the Computer Icon and click on the CD drive and it then opens up the CD and the songs appear, then it asks what to I want to play this with...Media Player, Itunes, etc. I have gone to the Default Settings and made the Windows Media Player as the default, but, it still does not open the Media player automatically like it used to do! What am I missing here? Any suggestions would be helpful. (and no, I'm not buying a Mac, can't afford the price for what I need).
