Re: Computer help needed (please!)
No, you're correct Rosie. The internal audio cable would have nothing to do with audio cds not being read properly. The problem would seem to be at the software level at first glance. Could be that your hardware (cd player) has gone kaput, I suppose, but it seems exceedingly odd that you can read data disks perfectly fine.
So when you put in an audio disk and go to My Computer, can you explore the disk? Or does it give errors?
