Hello, I just joined your site and I would like to ask you how I can play a CD on my computer?  I've had the computer for about two years and never had to play a CD before.  Thank you

@scorpio012 

First, download and install this media player:  https://www.videolan.org/vlc/

 

Then, insert the CD into the drive and close it.

 

If VLC does not open and start playing the CD, then select the CD drive through File Explorer, right-click one of the files, select Open With and select VLC Media Player.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to help me and for the information you provided.  I have another question and it concerns how to burn three songs from YouTube onto a CD-R?  I've spent the last two days trying to understand how they say to do it but it only confuses me more.  If you can help please give me a step by step instructions for a not very tech savvy person(me).  Thank you
