Well I have been getting my HTPC up and running better each day and will remove my stand alone DVD player soon. My question is my wife plays CD's with the stand alone, so what will I need for her to play them on the HTPC?

If you have a big enough HD, why not just rip her collection to the drive, either compressed or not, and use one of the several fine front ends? My wife and I find it much easier than the standalone.

SIMJEDI - I am planning on moving the standalone DVD player into another room.


90c4 - I have a 120 gig HD. What do you mean by "front ends"?


Surely this is not that big of a deal just to play CD's. My sound card will be the Maudio DiO and it will be connected to my a/v receiver.

Windows media player plays Audio CDs just fine.


If you need bit perfect playback at 44.1Khz you need a soundcard capabel of that and can use Winamp with the CDDA and ASIO plugin.


Cheers

A software package will turn your PC into a media jukebox. I'm using XLobby

Well I finally installed the Maudio DiO card today. I have not been able to get any audio when I play a CD with Windows Media Player.


Any ideas?

Check to make sure you have "digital audio" selected for the cdrom drive or you will have to connect the cable from the drive to the sound card.


Directions


right click my computer select properties then hardware then device manager, expand the cd drive/s and right click select properties then check the box marked "enable digital audio"


if that dont fix it reinstall drivers
