    Back in December, Larry Core helped someone with the same problem I have. None of my audio apps (Creative Play Centre 2.5, Media Player 7.1 etc) will recognise .cda files.

    Following that thread (entitled {Solved} dvd rom not playing .cda files - dated 13th January 01) showed me that I do not have MCI CD in Media Control Devices.

    Larry's solution was to post a link to -microsoft.com/library/winresource/dnwin95/S659A.HTM
    in order to install the driver

    From the reply on the thread this worked. Unfortunately the link is not now available ('Page cannot be found'). A search for 'S659A.HTM' comes up blank.

    Any help please?

    My system is;
    Abit KT7A Raid mobo
    Athlon 1.0
    Win 98 SE
    256 ram
    Creative Live! Value
    Diamond Viper V770 pro.

    If you are using Windows 95/98
    Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .


    Double-click Add New Hardware .


    In the Add New Hardware dialog box, click Next .

    NOTE : If you are using Windows 98, click Next , and then click Next .


    When the Add New Hardware Wizard asks if you want Windows to search for new hardware, click No , and then click Next .


    Click Sound, Video And Game Controllers , and then click Next .


    In the Manufacturers box, click Microsoft MCI . In the Models box, click CD Audio Device (Media Control) , and then click Next .


    Click Finish to install the driver.


    Restart Windows.

    Thanks for the response Brian.

    At the moment I am at work (night shift on an oil rig in the North Sea). I'll follow your suggestions when I get back to my room in the morning.
