ELT Products

A. Only our most recent products are designed specifically to run on Windows Vista. However, you will find that most of our products will run on Windows Vista without any problem.

A. Our CD-ROMs will run automatically when they are inserted into most PCs, and you will see the interactive content by default. Any audio that is on the disk is separate. Close the interactive part of the CD-ROM, and use your media player (e.g. Windows Media Player, iTunes) to play the audio. You can also use the CD in your audio CD player in the normal way.

A. This is probably because your media player (e.g. Windows Media Player, iTunes) is set to detect audio files on a CD-ROM and play them automatically. If this happens to you when using one of our multiROMs, you will need to close down your media player and navigate to the CD-ROM in the normal way. Windows users should use Explore to do this.
