How to Fix a CD Ripping Error in Windows Media Player 11: Error Code C00D10D2


Windows Media Player 11 (commonly referred to WMP 11) is a popular software media player that many users of Windows based computers use for audio and video. If you’ve recently tried to rip your audio cds to a digital music format and seen this error message, then try these steps for a quick solution.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 5 minutes max.

Here's How:

  1. To access Windows Media Player's options, click the Tools menu tab at the top of the screen and choose Options.

  2. On the options screen that is displayed, click the Devices tab to see a list of hardware devices attached to your system. Now, left-click your CD/DVD drive that you use for ripping your audio CDs. Click the Properties button for the next screen.

  3. On the properties screen for the selected drive, ensure that the Digital setting is enabled for both Playback and Rip sections. On the same screen, also make sure that the check box next to the Use error correction option is set.

  4. Finally to save your settings, click Apply and then OK. To exit the options screen, just click OK one more time.


  1. If the above doesn't fix the problem, then another thing you can try is to click the Tools menu tab at the top of Windows Media Player's screen (as in step 1) and choose Options. Now, click the Rip Music tab and try changing the rip audio format (in the rip settings section)to Windows Media Audio - this sometimes cures this CD rip error. Click the Apply button followed by OK.
