MP4 players and copying cd's

I'm hoping that some techy out there will be able to solve my father’s problem with his MP4 player.

He has happily ripped a number of his favourite CD's onto his pc and copied them onto his MP4 player. However, when he now loads a CD into the CD drive, it doesn't 'respond' or seem to recognise that a CD has been loaded and if you open the CD drive the folder is empty.

It's fine if he loads one of the CD's he's ripped before, it asks him what he wants to do with it etc and it plays the CD happily via Windows Media Player.

I’ve checked the file associations in Windows Media Player and they all appear OK and the properties of CD drive itself appear OK – well they’re the same as mine are.

Any pointers where I can look next would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Just giving this a nudge to see if there are any super brainy people lurking in the forums todays.

Thanks Chris, yes I checked the auto play as that was my first though.

I'm more confused that it will play some he's recorded from but doesn't recognise any 'new ones'.
