When you insert the CD, does autoplay show up giving you an option "Rip CD with Windows Media Player"?

Also, when you open WMP, can you see the DVD drive in the navigation pane on the left?

to answer your questions..

(sorry this may be hard to read but 7 forums crams everything into one paragraph with no formatting) (1) there is no auto play option for rip CD (2) when I open WMP it does not show ANY disc drives. 3) when I insert a music CD it just starts playing showing only the tiny little blue box. 4) when I search the menu options file-view-play-tools there is nothing about rip
