Q: Why am I getting an “AVS Rejected” error when processing my credit/debit card?
A: The address you provided does not match the address on file with your credit card company/bank. Please ensure the following: 

1.) Do not use special characters (for example, use Apt 2 instead of the pound sign (#2). 
2.) Make sure that you are entering the billing address on file with your credit card company/bank.
We suggest getting a credit card/bank statement and ensure you are inputting your address exactly as indicated on the statement.
Next check with your credit card company/bank and verify that
a) the address associated with your credit/debit card and
b) the address for your account profile are both correct.
Please note: we only forward the information you inputted over to the credit card company/bank AVS (Address Verification System).
They return to us whether the credit/debit card is valid based on the information they have on file. 

 Q: Why am I getting a “CVV Rejected” error when processing my credit/debit card?
A: The credit card verification number you provided is incorrect. Please ensure that you are entering the
correct credit card verification number. On most credit/debit cards, this three-digit number can be found on the reverse side of the card.
On American Express card, this four-digit number can be found on the front side. 

Q: My transaction failed/declined. When I check my bank account, it shows that the transaction went through, why?
 A: Even though our system failed/declined your transaction, certain banks still put a hold on the money you attempted to process.
Usually, after three days, the hold is released. You should follow up with your bank.

  • Click on News & Events
  • Click on Tools
  • Click on Compatibility View
  • You should now be able to navigate through the calendar


Q: Why does unrelated track information appear when I play your CDs in Windows Media Player?
A: When playing or copying an audio CD, Windows Media Player attempts to locate information associated with that CD,
such as the artist name, title, and track names. This information is added to the overall list of information that is kept in the Media Library.
To obtain this information, Windows Media Player sends a unique CD identification number to WindowsMedia.com.
No personally identifiable information is obtained or stored during this transaction.

 To prevent the Player from searching for audio CD and music file information: 

  • Open Windows Media Player
  • Pull down menu under Library
  • Select More Options


  • Select Privacy tab
  • Make sure that the following unchecked options are unchecked on your screen: 

Player Properties

  • Click Clear History button.
  • Click Clear Caches button.
  • Click Apply button.
  • Click OK button.
  • Close then re-launch Windows Media Player.
