Windows media player 11wont play backtrack line 6marked files

Go to and download and istall K-Lite Codec Pack 5.90 (Full) it should beef up your windows media player to accommodate most codec's.

If that doesn't do the job, again from filehippo, download and install VLC Media Player.

Both programmes are freeware.

No audio devices installed cant play audio files

First check if a windows machine by going to start/control panel/sound and audio devices and see if a sound card is listed. Check the setting under hardware and audio. You need two essentials to play audio files. You need a sound card and the software to play audio files. Most desktop computers come with some type of sound card but you can buy one from a local "Best Buys", "Walmart" online or computer store. They are relatively inexpensive and can be installed as a DIY in an open PCI slot inside the back of your machine or take it to a computer store. Windows Media Player comes with Windows and Apple's Quick time with Macs so that should take care of the player end of things. Hope this helps out. Give me some feedback if it does. Thanks

Sound Driver

Your sound device is either damaged or has no driver installed. Look in Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager for yellow marks.
You'll find the driver at the Compaq site.
I can't help you further without a model number.
