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.
