System specs?

Do other media players see anything? I like using Media Monkey to play music, though any media player should handle a CD just fine.

When you insert an audio disk into your drive then all you will see is as you described if you use Explorer to view it. You need a media playing program to listen to the music or a ripping program to copy the tracks to your computer. The Windows Media player that is installed on your computer is capable of doing both tasks.
