Windows 7: CD 64 bit incompatibility issue.

CD 64 bit incompatibility issue.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

I have an old special Beatles PC playable music CD with 25 albums on it, it is a home produced CD but not made by me unfortunately
The CD will not open with the usual menu display of the list of albums and tracks because of the 64 bit incompatibility issue.
It plays on my old XP 32 bit desktop but will not play on my new Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

If I explore the CD it shows one folder with all the albums in it, they are playable but without any track menus.
Other items shown in the CD are three files, one is an Autorun file and the other two are Application files named Beatles and Install and I suspect these two are the troublesome incompatible files.

Is there anyway this CD could be converted in some way to play on my 64 bit laptop.

No, a music CD.

Posted solely in an effort to clarify the problem...

A single CD cannot contain 25 albums in CDA format. If my math is correct, neither will a DVD.

Hi Folks

I have no idea how all this music is on this 1995 compilation CD but there are 25 separate wav files.
There are 7 wav files ranging between 2,825 kb to 5,547 kb, these are shorter pieces of music, the remaining 18 wav files range between 13,644 kb to 60,968 kb and these I presume are the actual albums.

I donít know what this means but is says the file system is CDFS, maybe this helps!

copy the WAV files to your harddrive.
go to my Tools page and download the program, DTS in WAV converter
also read about its usage before you download it.

If I do as you suggest would the CD be as operable as before with it's various menu's etc?
All I really want to do is to make a 64 bit version of the original 32 bit CD.

there is no such thing as 64bit media or 32bit media.
Audio/Video files are not platform specific. (Windows playback)

The problem you are experiencing is the fact that the wav files contain dts audio which you cannot playback at this time. If you were to follow my instructions you would be removing the media from the cd and copying it to your harrdrive. Afterwards, you can drag n drop each wav file onto the software program I suggested you use and this program will write new files from the old which in turn would be playable.

It's been a failure unfortunately.
I did as suggested and all I ended up with was duplicate identical files, the same as already on the disc.
