No Sounds Here
Open the volume control (double-click its icon in the Taskbar) and move the slider buttons up to the volume you want, then select the check box labeled Mute All. Now close the volume control (Options, Exit), plug in your headphones to your CD-ROM drive, and run CD Player (Start, Programs, Accessories, Multimedia, CD Player). If you do this, you can listen to music without being bothered by the background sounds.

You can use a similar method to listen to music with the speakers. Open Volume Control and select Mute for all the check boxes except the one for the CD. This will prevent your hearing the computer sounds while you enjoy your CD.
