CD ROMs have separate audio cable

Most CDROMs have a built in audio cable as well as the data portion. It is simply reading the file and the audio part is going through the separate cable onto another part of your motherboard.

To get around this, try 'ripping', or copying, the data portion of the CD onto your computer and watching/listening to it as a file on your desktop/folder.

i tried the first solution, does exactly that, prob is the client wants it to play for CDs not just the HDD. i deleted a filter setting in the reg, and i tried tweaking with the settings of the software, the acceleration problem, thought so awell but that does not seem to be the problem, maybe a problem that only acer can fix?
