Windows Media Player can play limited types of file formats. If you get that message, it means that the file may work but you might encounter some problems like there's sound but no video or no sound but has video. You can download codecs upgrades but it will download only specific ones.
You can download VLC media player. It's a very nice piece of freeware that allows you to play almost all types of file formats. And in case the file that you have is damaged, it will attempt to repair to so that you can play it.
Make sure you download the music format is supported by windows media player.( windows media player requires formats are supported to play)
If not, you need to get the converter to change the format of music that you download.
Chances are you need the proper codec to run the DVD. Software companies often write their own 'interpreter' software to read the format they use to encode videos/music files.
Trying doing a search on the internet for the type of file format Windows Media Player is trying to run, then look for the codec for that format. Unless the format is copyright protected, Microsoft should have the codec available on their website.
Go to start : All Programs: Accessories: right click on Command Prompt, click run as administrator. click continue: you should see C:\Windows\system32> type there regsrv32 wmp.dll
It should look like this C:\Windows\system32>regsrv32 wmp.dll
(make sure to put the space in between 32 and wmp)
An info box will appear. Click Ok then restart.
That should fix it!
i would suggest that you either roll back your driver for the graphics card or do a system restore to a date previous to when the drivers were updated, this wil show in the system restore dates boxes.
You are probably running the generic windows driver for your graphics, it's better to see what updates you are installing before updating any hardware drivers.
