    How do I change my default player???

    Whenever I listen to a music CD, my Windows Media Player always pops up. How do I change this so my iPod program is the default?

    I used to have it this way before, but I've since had to re-format my HD.

    Right click on a music file and select "Open with..." then change to whatever player you want. And I think that only works for one type of file, so if you have some mpeg4 and wma music files, you'll have to do it to both.

    Make sure that when you open the file that the check box has a check in it near the bottom that says "Make this the default program to open this file type"

    After that is should always use that program to open the file.

    And in the future, if you update your iTunes, it'll give you the option of making iTunes the default player for files, and you can pick and choose then as well.
