Thanks- sounds like that will probably solve my problem.  Except, im not
sure where to find the 'cd player', its not in optical discs or music tools
for me.  Is it just an option somewhere in mythmusic?  Haven't really spent
much time looking but I didn't find it easily when I looked last night.

Hi Will,

I have a similar problem. Although I just have one drive installed.

My workaround is:
- play the CD (who should be able to play it through myth)
- rip the CD (now it works! at leat for me...)
