If so...My guess is....there is a cable from your player to your motherboard that carries only what used to be called redbook sound. That cable has become dislodged.
Nope. Nothing happens when I put in the audio CD. It spins for a bit, then stops. The computer just doesn't seem to recognize it at all. I can't even get the CD to appear on the computer, let alone play it or rip it.
I've read quite a few suggestions about checking to see if cables have become dislodged, but it would seem the problem is earlier in the process than that. (Starting with computer not reading the CD.)

No, I thought about that too, but I don't think that's it. None of the many, many CDs I've tried have worked, including ones that have already been uploaded, and including ones I know don't have any crazy copy protection coding.
