When I attempt to play an Audio CD I am prompted with the following message:

We have determined that Windows Media Player cannot accurately read your DVD drive digitally. Windows Media Player will therefore switch to reading your DVD drive in analog mode. Your CDs will play, but the following items will not work when playing CDs: Visualizations, SRS Wow effect, Graphic Equalizer.


i have checked the setting in WMP 7 and device manager and they appear ok. Can anyone please help me?

There is a bug in media player that gives this message if you have renamed
any drive letters (i.e. set CD drive to a letter other than it's default).
Solution is to remove the CD drives in device manager and then restart
Windows. This will redetect the CD / DVD and you should get digital playback
and record being available again.

Of course none of the software that you installed since changing the drive
letters will work any more (Luckily I had just reinstalled Windows when I
got this error).
