Re: Green screen on windows media player and trouble...
Hi, does this occur when you open all files or just movie files, eg. avi files? there is a free application called gspot, this will tell you what the file is encoded with. Are all your codecs installed? failing this you could possibly go back to WMplayer 10. hope this helps...

Hi, are you sure the computer is recognizing your player?...if not....
player not recognized by the computer
This may be caused by one of the following: 1. Minimum system requirements were not met. 2. Corrupted drivers. 3. Computer restrictions. 4. Power issue.
To resolve this issue, try the following solutions:
SOLUTION 1 - For brand new player or first time connecting to this computer.
For Windows XP users: verify the following operating system requirements are met. - Windows XP SP2 or higher - Windows Media Player 10 or higher
Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.
For Windows Vista users: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player. - Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211. - Run the hotfix.
For MAC users, see Sansa player not recognized by a MAC OS
NOTE: If you are trying to connect to a Computer at work that is part of a network, there may be user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware or stop any program installations. You may need to check with your IT administrator to see if this is causing the problem.
SOLUTION 2 - Refresh the driver
STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full. - If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub. - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.
If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.
STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager 1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. Image 2. Click Device Manager on the left pane. Image
NOTE: Sansa MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are mitone mp4 player Connect and mitone mp4 player Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for mitone mp4 player Players when used with Windows OS.
The mitone mp4 player player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as: 1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.
STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers 1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall. 2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.
Here's the link to Windows Media Player 11, If you know your windows is Genuine, the go ahead, but if your windows copy isn't genuine, download this one and follow the instructions shown here, otherwise you'll not be able to reinstall it.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Check and make sure you are plugging it into a 2.0 usb port. If you are I would try another cable to see if maybe you have a bad usb cable. If that does not work then you can check and see if loading the driver for your player on your computer and see if that fixes the issue. Here is how you can do that: 1.Look for the icon named "Computer" or "My Computer" and right click on it and select properties, this will open a window named "System Properties". 2.In the system properties windows click on the tab named "Hardware", and Select "Device Manager". 3.On this window you will see all the devices installed on your computer, look for the device not working properly (printer, dvd rom, keyboard, camera, mp3 player, etc), if there is a bigger problem, more likely you will see a cross by it, or an alert stating there is an issue with it. 4.Right click on the device you where having problems with and select uninstall, it will give you a confirmation, press OK 5.Once the device disappeared from the list, click on the menu bar icon that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass this will cause for the system to scan for any devices not registered and will force the re installation of the device.
unplug the power cable going into the power supply. wait for a while and plug it back
install software with updated drivers. check to make sure you have the most recent motherboard drivers.download if necessary.plenty of sites available
update your windows media player
get Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 if possible
goto Start Menu->Control Panel->System and then clicking the Hardware tab and going to Device Manager. in Device Manager you could delete all entries with "USB" in the name and reboot. let Windows redetect the USB devices. uninstall your usb drivers and download the latest ones available and reinstall your usb drivers.
What operating system is your computer? If it is Vista you will have trouble getting your dj to work. Dell dj software was meant to be used with XP or Windows 2000. If you are currently using either one of these two Operating Systems then you most likely have a driver problem. The best solution is to install a software package from Dell, labeled R74224. This package includes the driver and Musicmatch software.
