If you have more than one CD-ROM drive installed, you cannot select thedrive you want to use in Media Player to play an audio CD.
Media Player does not recognize multiple CD-ROM drives.
To work around this behavior, use CD Player to play audio CDs. If theAutoRun feature is enabled in Windows NT, CD Player starts automaticallywhen you insert an audio CD. If the AutoRun feature is disabled, you canstart CD Player by clicking the Start button, pointing to Programs,pointing to Accessories, pointing to Multimedia, and then clicking CDPlayer.
