Thank you once again. I did as you suggested, got rid of the four items, did a reboot and tried again. I put a disc in the player, got three notes and that was it!!
Have you any idea what else might be the problem, do you think there might be some dirt on the mirrror of the player and it needs a clean?? I am at a loss as to what to try next.
I let Windows sort out the drivers
, did a Dell computer check and everything passed muster. I have attaached the lastest screen shot so you can see the set up.
Just as an aside, I used to live near Kilmarnock...
