As the CDROM drive appears to be using data CDs correctly, it's likely that there is not much wrong with it. As you are attempting to play music, I would say the problem is more likely the sound card, or connecting cable.
Check the small cable thatshould connect between your CD-ROM drive and the soundcard or motherboard. Also just check the wide IDE data cable from the CD-ROM unit to the motherboard. A cable problem is unlikely but possible.
Get the latest drivers for your sound card, and any specific applications.
If the sound card has a CD player application, try using that and see what happens.

Regards!

Other questions;
1. what program are you using to play music?
(Media Player, other 3rd party SW?)
2. Has it ever played music before?
3. Before you reboot are you saying it locks up (freezes?)?

Sounds like a driver conflict, in that I meanthe ablility for your OS to play music CD's on your CD rom......Sounds like it can read fine, but can't manipulate the music part..... check it out...
