can not play audio cd's under vista 64bit
ok, i have tried 4 different drives from 3 different manufacturers, and still
all drives are sata
they are the following.
pioneer dvd212d-newest firmware
asus drw-1814blt-newest firmware
samsung cddvdw sh-s203b-newest firmware

one computer is running the pioneer drives, on an asus m2ne-sli using
onboard sound, latest 64bit drivers for everything, windows vista premium x64
second computer is running the other 2 drives, on an evga 780i sli board,
using an echo miamidi, with latest 64bit drivers for everything, windows
vista ultimate 64 oem

both will play the first 10 or 15 seconds of ANY cd then just stop
in foobar i get

Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (I/O error (win32 #1117)):

Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (I/O error (win32 #1117)):

Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (I/O error (win32 #1117)):

Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (I/O error (win32 #1117)):

in wmp i get

Windows Media Player cannot read the CD. The disc might be dirty or damaged.
Turn on error correction, and then try again.

on ANY cd, including the two disc i JUST opened fresh from shrink wrap.
error correction has been turned on AND off, no difference

in media player classic i just get static and loud noises.

they are all using windows driver 6.0.6001.18000.

all drives read and burn data just fine as well as burn and rip dvd's with
no issues.
can't rip audio cd's, can not burn audio cd's, cannot play audio cd's


any other questions or info needed, just ask.

thanks. this one is really stumping me.

Re: can not play audio cd's under vista 64bit

Can you please clarify how you fixed it? I'm having the exact same
problem with Vista 64.

Which Nvidia drivers did you install? I'm already using the latest

I've installed nForce 15.17 international drivers and Geforce 175.19

The internation nForce drivers are newer than the US ones but that
might not mean they are better.

Re: can not play audio cd's under vista 64bit

I'm having the same problem. I upgraded my HP computer from Vista home
Basic to Vista Ultimate 64-bit and now my CD player plays only 1 minute
and 3 seconds before error-ing out (although still plays DVDs and data
discs). I have tried uninstalling the drivers installing the new
drivers. Upgrading all the motherboard drivers via Nvidia GeForce 6150
LE this works for others but not me. I saw some where on another forum
you can try changing the registry but they didn't say which one.

Can anyone please help?
