You need to have it download codecs for the type of video you are playing. Do you have it connected to trhe internet just before playing the video? It should be able to download the codecs automatically

Download and install K-lite. It is a "pack" of all popular codecs. After you install it, your media software will load with the appropriate codec the next time you watch a movie. Enjoy.

Windows media has sound no visual when playing


Your media player might be having problems getting the video feed from the USB. try copying the file to your local disk and play the movie from there.

My movies wont play and if they do play there is no volume.there is volume for music but not movies


You need a codec to allow for the sound with your video. There are many of them, and it is a nightmare knowing which one to get, so I recommend getting one of the packs some good folks have put together for us. Here is a link to one I use on my laptop.
