I can't import audio CDs into iTunes with my new Dell 531 Vista computer. The songs seem to import, but only small (~50K) files are created, which don't play. Also, I cant play audio CDs using iTunes. CDs do play using Windows Media Player. The DVD/CD drive seems to work fine in all other applications.

I have tried the "device filter" regedit fix, but no luck. Anyone else have this problem?

Here are my diagnostics details:

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Edition (Build 6000)
Dell Inc. Inspiron 531
