View Full Version : Windows Media Player

Does anyone know how much this thing sucks! It's horrible. The visualization sucks, as does the media player itself. It sucks up so much memory and resources that I can't do anything but listen to the crap M$ considers music. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Welcome to the boards, hekk04. :) May I suggest a better music player (http://www.winamp.com/download/)? :D

yeah, i've been using winamp since ver. 1.45, but on my Win2K box, CD's don't play so well, do i started to play them with WMP, which i now regret.

tried. no luck with that, or anything else suggested in the forums.

Time for a new cd-rom drive, maybe? :D

well, it's a practacly brand new DVD-ROM drive, and the same thing happens with the CD-RW drive, so this must be Win2K's problem. Damn Micro$soft

Oh, I got'cha...
I guess it's time to upgrade to Win98SE then, huh? :D

my Win98SE disc is long gone, only a friends pirated WinME disc is here in front of me. should i? or will the guilt overwhelm me until i break down and buy a legal copy. decisions, decisions.

hekk- does Win2k's built in cd-player also not work? Is it only WMP that plays cds? In that case:
Windows Explorer/My Computer
Right Click on DVD ROM drive icon
Device settings tab
Check "Use Digital Audio"
Otherwise, win2k won't make use of the audio cable connecting your drive to your motherboard.
