Hey jerry.

Isn't this something of an ongoing issue for you? Did you ever get your
external CD rom to be recognised for the other program (was there more than
one?) you were using?

You can find all disk options under "open disk" in the media menu. Looking
at it now, there is a series of radio buttons from which you can choose the
type of disk. This changes the playback options in the dialog box. There's
also a combo box that lets you choose a drive. I only have one CD drive, but
it should register any such drives plugged into your computer, external or
not. 

The hotkey for the "open disk" dialog is ctrl-d. It's also accessible from
the media menu from the menu bar. If you have already seen that dialog and
looked at that combo box, and if it's only showing your internal drive --
then I guess your problem with the external and Windows is ongoing.

Regarding VLC, can you tell me the process for accessing an external cd rom
drive? I attempted to do this previously, but I could only find my internal
drive on my dell laptop. Using JAWS 2018, Windows 10, and VLC 2.2 (I
believe).
Thanks.
Jerry

I use Winamp for this too. There is a random button in the playlist editor.
I don't think there's a convenient shortcut for it by default. But yes, it's
there. When I took a brief look last time when I had version 2.2.6 or
something, I could not get jAWS to find it, however. I will try again with
3.01 and see what happens. The reason I didn't fuss about this at the time
(I like making random playlists too) is that I really only use VLC for
videos. Of course it's your choice, and it may make a difference to you that
VLC is still being updated. However, most new file formats are video, not
audio, formats. Another thing I value winamp over VLC for audio playback for
is the equalizer. VLC has one, but it's much less user friendly ... it's
very difficult to save your own settings. SO if you care about that, you
might want to consider this. However, for video playback, VLC simply can't
be beat. It's fast and extremely versatile. There's a lot of stuff under the
hood.

Brilliant news, if you point it at a folder, can you ask it to play the mp3
files there in a random order?
I Stil use Winamp for this reason at the moment.

Hey folks.



Some may remember I made several posts about how great this player was, but
that certain things, like the advanced preferences dialog, were difficult to
use with a screen-reader. I just want to report that I have installed the
last stable build, 3.01 I believe, and not only does the player seem at
least twice as fast to load on my Windows 10 64 bit machine, but the
preferences screen is reading properly with JAWS. The advanced preferences
now show as a tree view, and so far I no longer have to hit space on a
checkbox to even hear whether it is a checkbox or not. So, good news for
video users.
