I really don't know, but who knows, it may be worth a try.

Is there still not a way to download WMP 12?

Did you try this? What was the outcome?

I did that earlier before I logged back on and SUCCESS!!
I can now double click on the CD/DVD Drive and it plays!

But after checking "Set your default programs" WMP is still not listed but it's listed in "Set Program access & computer defaults"?

Also in "Change AutoPlay Settings" I selected WMP but inserting a cd autoplay doesn't work?

Thanks to all who have helped in this process!!
