cocktail x12

Anyone know how to play a cd? I've spent all morning trying all kinds of stuff to no avail. If I can't do that then I've pissed away what I paid for it. Do have the manual and it tells almost every thing other than to simply play any music whatsoever.
I owe you lunch if we were to get together. Took about 10 seconds and the tunes started playing. I can't thank you enough.
Thank you, Thank you

Too much egg nog over the holidays?
Apparently. It took a minute after I posted that I noticed the article in question was in the OP’s header. 😵
