    Windows Media Player won't play CDs

    Hello DominicGerald,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    To address your concern, kindly help us with the following queries:

    1. Are you receiving any error code or error message when you attempt to play the music?
    2. Is your music CD being detected by the system and are you able to access it through the File Explorer (Windows + E key)?

    In Windows Media Player, you can play audio CDs, data CDs, and data DVDs that contain music or video files (also known as media CDs). If you have a DVD drive and a compatible DVD decoder installed on your computer, you can use Windows Media Player
    to play a DVD-Video disc. If your unable to play anything on WMP, kindly check with the steps listed below and see if it works:

    Method 1: Update DVD/CD ROM driver from Device Manager.

    Sometimes, the issue persists if the drivers aren’t updated. So, I would suggest you to update the DVD/Cd driver manually. To do that, you may refer the article on

    Update drivers in Windows 10.


    Once after updating the drivers, you may check if you are able to play songs. If not, you may try out the following method.

    Method 2: Adjust Burn Settings.


    As you say that it’s getting stuck while burning a CD, you might want to check with the burn speed. To do that,

    • Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu.
    • Click on Organize and select
      Options
      from the list.
    • Select the Burn tab in the Options window and select the drop-down menu beside
      Burn speed and select Slow.
    • Click on Apply and OK
      to exit the settings screen.
    • Try burning a new CD and check if it plays.

    Method 3: Download and install add-ons for Windows Media Player.

    I would suggest you to get the add-ons for your player and check if you are able to play songs. To do the same, you may want to refer to an article on
    Downloads for Windows.


    Kindly get back to us with the results. We will be glad to assist you further if the issue persists.

    Regards,
