"You can't because in Microsoft's "wisdom" they incorporated Media
Player into the operating system itself. So they only way to "fix" WMP
is to reinstall Vista or attempt to repair it. There is such a utility
on the Vista DVD. A less drastic step would be to try rolling back to
one of your restore points which may fix things."
Another option is to get a free third party ripping program from Here
I am researching to see if I can find a free ripping software for you also.
I found this one Here

Use WMP as your player and the other software to do the ripping

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista), type in:
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc won't find any errors in Windows XP, it'll simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".
For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it here: http://www.flyupload.com/, and post download link.
If you don't have Windows CD....
(this applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc")
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.
Go Start>Run, type in:
Navigate to the following key:
You will see various entries (Values) on the right hand side.
The one we want is called: SourcePath
It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive,(usually D:) and that is why it is asking for the XP CD. All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.
Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!
Thanks to Broni for the instructions

"Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"
Even if it didn't I am assuming it did not find any problems. That being the case then your OS and WMP is not having any issues. I personally believe that it's due to the DRM restrictions that Microsoft has embedded into WMP 11
I can only assume at this point that third party software is your only choice. I will ask another tech and see if they can look at this topic and maybe they can offer another suggestion that I do not know of.
