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.
