CD Audio problems

When trying to play an audio CD I get the following error:
"The MCI (Cd Audio)-service of the CDROM driver isn't responding. Can't start CD-Player."

I've tried solving this error by removing and reinstalling the CDROM players in the Device Manager, removing and reinstalling the soundcard. Removing and reinstalling the audiocodecs and mediacontroldevices (ie: mcicda.dll), installing the Via 4in1 drivers again... but nothing seems to work. I'm using Windows 2000 Profesional, does anyone have another suggestion to solve this extremely irritating problem?

Thanks in advance!

I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:

  1. Do you have the audio cable running from the cd-rom to the sound card plugged in or is it the setup where everything is done thru the IDE cable?
  2. Yes everything was connected properly.

    I did a fresh install of Win2k because I kinda screwed it up when trying evrything to repair it... everything works again now. I think the MCI drivers were damaged somehow.
