Hey guys. I have a pretty strange problem here. I have been using media player classic for some time. I love it. Now it is broke.

Whenever I open Media Player Classic version 6.4.9 and brush my cursor over the File menu it freezes. In the Task manager is states "Not Responding." Strangely, another instance of wmpc also appeares under application. This does not happen when i attempt to open a file (i can't get that far), it happens as soon as I attempt to click the "File menu."

I have the ff4show codec. I am running a gateway desktop 3 gig pentium 4. My video card is Intel® 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller. I will provide any other info to you would like.

Can you help?

Thanks! :whistling: :blink:

Got it fixed. For anyone elese who has this problem, select "hide cd roms menu" in options.

Have no idea in the world why that fixes it.

Feels like a time-out to me, because MPC responds again after a minute or so. I've had the same problem and have posted the description to the MPC support forum: http://sourceforge.n...amp;atid=854652. Check back there if anyone takes it on.

My guess is that MPC tries to access something on a CD that was once inserted, and is now gone. It would probably work if you could remember which CD it was. I have skimmed the registry but found no entries there, so I'm not sure I'm on the right track, but if I am, how to make MPC forget. But your solution is fine - those of us that are still spinning CDs in their computers to listen to music, do it with Windows Media Player anyway...
