I get an error message when I run windows media player 9 to play an audio cd it says it can not play using the digital audio method and asks me if I wanna use the analog method.... If I do the analog method it crashes windows ME. It worked fine when I had windows 98 SE on the same computer using digital. Winamp plays the digital method no problem. I tried doing the unofficial wmp10 update and that did not help either... what gives?

Your gonna give us a little bit more information than that kid. There is almost an infinite number of configurations that you could possibly have. Unless we know details of the system we are not going to be able to be much help.

PS Get prepared for all the messages of people commenting on the OS your using...

I remember they started to try and add some drm / odd stuff to some audio cd's that would play fine in a normal cd player, but on software could act differently.
Or does it have newer features such Audio CD text display?

Otherwise... can you post maybe a screenshot of it?

Have to tried to revert back to default (audio) settings?
Maybe VLC can play your audio CD's?

You may need that CD-Audio cable that connects from the Optical drive to the sounnd-card/board, in order to play digital audio.

Do you have your drivers install? Right click computer, go to manage, and click hardware manager. Are there any missing drivers?

I know this is obvious, but do you have the IDE and molex cable connected to the CD drive?

Is the Drive Master or Slave?

um no. I'm pretty sure that cable is analogue. Digital audio I'm pretty certain is passed down through the IDE/ATAPI/SCSI/SATA cable to the computers sound card to be processed.

Also back in those days when you selected analogue audio all it did was send play/stop etc. commands to the CD drive and it was the drive itself that did all the D/A decoding. That's why if windows crashes the CD would keep playing.

fraid not mate,its the other way round. analogue uses the old cable from optical drive to sound card, digital pulls the data using CDDA like a data disk :)

This point alone may be the cause of most of your issues if you are running it on semi current hardware.

How did you go about changing from 98 to ME and how soon after you changed did this happen?

I would suggest upgrading to Windows XP if your system does not support Windows 7. Windown ME had lots of trouble with audio.

It has a lot of trouble with about everything in fact.

I remember Baldur's Gate would keep crashing on it (bringing the whole system down requiring a reboot which was extremely slow on ME). Then when i upgraded to Windows 2000 i had no problem running it.
