    Windows Media Player

    I am running Windows Media Player in XP. I disabled auto play through the registry. When I change to a different cd to rip audio tracks the changed to cd will play but the information on the length of the tracks is that of the previous cd. Also, if you click on play and then select the drive your are using the information shown is the time the previous cd was put in the drive, not the time of the new cd was put in the drive.

    Did the disabling of the auto run do this or is there another problem?

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know what you did to the registry or why, but I WOULD reverse it if you can and see if that fixes the problem. If you want to do something with autoplay, you should be able to change it by right-clicking on the CD device and changing its properties and NOT have to mess with the registry. Try reversing the changes and see if that corrects the problem.

    According to Microsoft Windows Media FAQ, turning off AutoPlay is the cause.

    Windows Media Player Version 10 is now available.

    If you aren't using that version, you can get it at Version 10

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
