Ok so I just bought a new CD of a regional band I like called sam & the stylees after seeing them in concert. I listened to the new cd in my car on the way back and it was fine. When I put it in my computer it just says that it's a blank cd and says that there is no data on it. I want to put it on my computer though so I can put it on my mp3 player. Can anyone help?

I have xp by the way.

Did you try opening it with Windows Media Player? Maybe the disc is encoded or something.

When you choose to burn a CD, there's a choice between an audio CD and a data CD, and only the latter can be read by computers. They chose to make it an audio CD.

So how do you have a CD that works both in CD players and in a computer?

yeah i kinda had this problem with velvet revolver's contabrand. It plays on stereos fine but i try to put it on itunes and then to my ipod and any time on a computer or ipod it plays but its all ****ed up with every doubled and outta sync.

Anyone know why that is? I think its just a bad disc tho ( the quality not the music i haven't heard it all yet)

Yeah my computer doesn't even recognize it.
Under my computer on the E drive it just shows a blank cd.

So is there anyway it can be read by a computer?

Open it with WMP or iTunes and rip the CD to your computer.

Data discs work on both, as far as I know.

No, because most players can't read data. I thought for it to play on CD player etc it has to be burnt as an audio disc, which can be read and ripped on computers.

Well, I dunno.

That's not true... computers can read audio CDs fine. CD players, on the other hand, cannot read data CDs. Besides, literally every CD in a music store or a bookstore is an audio CD.

Anyways, try rebooting your computer to see if that helps. If not, download iTunes and try it again. If that still doesn't work, then I have no idea what's wrong with it.

EDIT: It may be that the CD is copy-protected. Check the band's website for information.
Signature? What's a signature?

That makes no sense

edit: If computers couldn't read audio CDs then how would you ever rip audio off a CD you bought?

When I burn cds I always burn as an audio disc and the computer does read it. Plus if you had a rewriteable disc, why would it allow you to use it and then not be able to use it again? Both audio cds and data pcs can be read by a computer.

Edit: come to think of it i had them same problem 2 weeks ago when my pc would not recognise a cd that i bought. I restarted the computer and it worked fine so maybe try that?

Hmm that's not true mister. CD/DVD Drives on PC's can read both audio and data CD's.

Maybe you should try cleaning it up with something and try to rip with "Audiograbber".

This applies only if it is an Audio CD. If it's a data CD (probably has MP3 files) you just gotta drag n' drop them to your PC. Although you probably knew that

Ok I might try that.

And I would definitely drag and drop it if it showed any data there. it just says there is 702 MB free of a total of 702 MB. So my computer is just saying there is nothing on the cd.

Actually, computers can read data and audio cds while car stereo's can only read audio cds/mp3 depending on what kind of optical drive it has.

Try using something like isoBuster to read the contents of the cd.

duncang, I'm afraid you are incorrect, Audio CDs can run on both.
