What kind of music CD is it? Can it be played from a computer? Can your CD drive read it?

Two things to check if you haven't already.

Will the music CD play in a different CD player? Car or home CD player?

Will other CD's work in the CD player? If it is a DVD/CD player will DVD's play?

Just wondering if it is that particular CD that won't play or the player itself is not working.


Recording internet radio I have no idea on that one.

Have you tried it using Windows media center and Windows media player and are they your default programs?
Can you play movies?
Can you fill in your Specs.
