    I forgot to address this part.

    I do not connect to the computer via VPN. I simplified that part just because this...

    This implies that I simply cannot see the names of the album and tracks. I could actually deal with renaming the album and tracks if I could just play the CD. Not only does WNP not display those...

    While we do sell enough music to make it worth our while, the margins are not high enough to justify an expensive solution for our level of use. I did also try a different VNC based application some...

    Yes. In fact I tried to eliminate those tracks when I make that screenshot by clicking on something else in the left column - Videos or something, I don't remember - but when I then clicked on the...

    I know those durned tracks that you are seeing are a distraction. The screenshot does show the Library contents (is that the same as the media guide?) because it refuses to show what is on the CD. ...

    Yes, it does. I just wish I could make sense of my problem. The link you gave in the previous message seemed to be where the CD on the remote system (the server in this example) was to be played on...

    I did as you ask. Play is grayed out because WMP does not recognize that there is a CD in the drive. If I hit the GUI's Play button it assumes that I am not really talking about the CD and so it...

    Thanks, Rick. I just went and checked, turned off both the firewall and antivirus and the CD is still not playable. So that isn't it, though it's another possibility knocked out. I should also...

    Plus when an employee puts the CD in the drive and looks at it locally, the CD is there and playable. And even if .cda were associated with some other music player, WMP should still recognize and...

    That's different from what I see. I login to the remote PC, open WMP and it says "unknown CD" in the D drive and will not even attempt to play it.

    If I look at the sound properties I do see a...

    Remote Desktop problem: CD not recognized

    I use RDP to login to a system in our store. Both systems running Windows 7 Pro. If a music CD is in the CDROM drive on the remote system, I can see it in Windows Explorer and see the .cda files. ...

    Yup.


    A lot of us felt that way about XP, but Win 7 Pro turned out much better in most aspects and I would never go back.
