The Computers Are Alive, with the Sound of Music!

Windows Media Player comes with Windows. Windows Media Player started out as just an audio playing program with simple video playback but has evolved into a full-functioning multimedia center. Playing audio CDs using Windows Media Player is a real treat. Much like with stereo components, you can program Windows Media Player to play only the tracks you want, to repeat the current disc until you stop it, or to play selected tracks at random (often known as shuffling).

Beginning with the basics, playing an audio CD, seems to be the best place to start enjoying your computer for its multimedia capabilities. When you insert an audio CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive, the Windows Media Player typically launches on its own. If it doesn't, you can call it into action by clicking the Start button on the Windows taskbar and then choosing All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Windows Media Player.
