When I insert an audio CD into my computer's CD drive, I want
MusicMatch Jukebox to be my default player.  However, RealPlayer pops
up instead.  How do I set my preference to MusicMatch instead of
RealPlayer (without uninstalling RealPlayer).  Thanks.

Hi dwc-ga,

Making MusicMatch Jukebox your default Audio CD Player is a two step
process.  The first step is disabling the feature in Realplayer and
the second is enabling the feature in MusicMatch.  I have provided
instructions on how to do this below:


1. Open Realplayer (if you haven't done so already), and open the
Tools menu.  Choose preferences, then click the "CD" option on your
right (click directly on the word).
2. Uncheck "Start Playback" under "When Inserting a CD"
3. Click OK


1. Choose "Options/Settings" from the Main Menu of MusicMatch Jukebox
2. Check the box next to "Music CDs" under "Use MUSICMATCH as the
default player for:"
3. Click OK

Please also note that depending on the version of the software you are
using, the menus and options may be slightly different from what is
listed above.  If you are having trouble locating one of the settings,
your best bet is to upgrade to the latest version of the software.

I had done those two steps.  However, I neglected a crucial but
undocumented requirement: restart the computer!  Duh!  Word to the
wise: don't ask for technical support until you've restarted the damn
computer -- ha!

RMN, thanks for accurate research and a clearly written answer.

You're welcome.  As I have told many clients (as a computer
consultant): "Restarting solves 80% of all computer problems. 
Restart, then call, and you'll save money."  Thanks for the positive
