A Quick Fix for the C00D10D2 Error Message

This is the most common fix, and it requires that you change one setting in Windows Media Player. The player has separate controls for ripping and playing, and it's possible for ripping support to be disabled. Go back into the settings and re-enable it.

  2. Choose Options.

  3. Choose the Rip Music tab, and change the rip audio format to Windows Media Audio. This sometimes cures the CD rip error.
