Operating System Version: any (really ! win 98 thru xp)
Problem Application Name & Version: cds with only files on them
Problem Hardware Make & Model: not rel.
Error Messages: as follows

"Windows can not find program.exe"
"This program is needed for opening files of type cd audio"

Hi. This is wrong! I put in a cd (any cd) and even after stopping autoplay (auto insert on win 98), the cd appears as an AUDIO cd and worse, shows one file track01.cda. Pretty wild stuff - seeing as this happens with cds loaded with files. This occurs with cds I've created. And with cds created by manufacturers. Happens on win 98 and win xp. Happens where ever I go, apparently. Is there a virus out there that I don't know about?

There are plenty of viruses out there neither you, nor I know anything about. Wink
But that's not what's happening here, I think. What brand & model CD player or CD-RW is it?
Is it still recognized okay in the BIOS/POST (when booting up)? Also check up on the error message:

I should say, the link says IE is needed for programs to start up, but it's also got the tendency to be embedded rather deep in Windows. So the Windows Explorer uses IE as well, which can cause similar problems. If that's not it though, leave the info I asked for, please.
