Hmm, interesting. Both of my PC's run Windows ME, so OS wise there's not much difference, I think. They both also use Windows Media Player as well.

In fact it can still be done with older versions of windows like 98 if you download/buy a player that allows this. There is a free player that will use aspi, NT/2k's version of io which is sort of like aspi and whose name I can't recall at the moment or even mscdex (IIRC). This player runs on 9X, 2k and xp. It's called Digital CD Player from M. Yanagisawa and is available from a webpage (homepage2.nifty.com/~maid I think.) This player also displays CD Text.
