I have access to three computers; two desktops one laptop. All have WinXP. I can download music on my computer (a desktop) but it has no sound card. So, if I want to listen to music, I have to either put it on an MP3 player or burn to CD. But, the other two computers (one laptop, one desktop) will not rip or burn or play anything I try to play from the no-sound machine. They will, however, play what is already on the machine. When I try to rip/burn/sync anything on either of the machines with sound, I get the "not responding" window.

This happens no matter if I use Windows Media Player, Real Player, or WinAmp. All three end up "not responding." I only have WinAmp on the laptop. What is happening and how can I fix it?

Update: I got the sound working on the no-sound machine. However, I can not play, rip, or burn any music on this machine. If the music is already on the hard drive, it will play, but if it is on an MP3 player or CD, both Windows Media Player and Real Player freeze. Is there something I need to download to get the CD to even play?

Does the CD drive in the computer even work? Sounds like it could be faulty. Try a regular data CD or one with a software package on it and let me know if it will read that.

It loaded, copied and set up Mega Solitare. It is working fine. So, it looks like the drive can read data but not music? I also just played two music videos from a USB memory device. One .avi and one Windows Media File then closed Windows Media Player. When I opened it, my saved play list was gone and I was told the individual music files could not be found. I "found" them again but had to make a new play list.

I'll have to admit that I'm stumped! I've worked on computers for more than ten years and not come across something like this. Let me know if you make any progress or if you find any more specifics that would help in finding a solution.

I think I may have come up with something. I didn't think anything of it, but, I tried to play a CD after I had played tracks alread on the computer. I had to restart the computer. I got a dialog box that had come up before. Like I said, I didn't think anything of it. The box said something about "mmjb.exe not responding. Click 'end now' to end the program now." I googled it and it is Music Match Jukebox. I use MP3 Rocket to download music. I am wondering if the two are tied together. I hope not because MP3 Rocket is a good system.

Except Real Player, Windows Media Player and Win Amp do not play CDs. I got Win Amp and Real Player because someone said "Get these! They are great!" I am sure it is a good system. I need to figure out this problem first, though.

Hey i was just throwing it out there. I hope you figure it out and if not its worth looking into.

GOM has every plugin you can think of with about a billion other functions. Its simple yet complex.

I will check it out. I like Win Amp, too. But, if Music Match is blocking everything else like I think it is, that problem has to be dealt with first. But, yes, I will check out GOM.

EDIT: I used my laptop as a "guinea pig" and un-installed Musicmatch Jukebox. Guess what? Everything runs perfectly! I am now going to un-install it on the other two machines.
