    If you're trying to store CD's on your hard disk, my advice to you would be to convert them to a compressed format such as MP3. You shouldn't experience any problems playing Dylan from a store bought CD, but if it's a home made CD then it may very well require you to obtain a codec that will allow it to be played.

    I've given you a link below to what is a really fine freeware audio ripper. It can extract the contents of your CD and then compress it into Mp3. I would also like to recommend that you download and install the lame dll.
