Try to resolve this with a restart first before you go deeper. restart your computer and make sure there are no programs running but windows media player only.

if same problem occurs, it may be a codec problem. you might be missing a codec. download the Gspot program here. It will help you detect which codec is missing. once you know which one, then download the codec by searching through the internet.

can also be compatibility issue with other software/programs such as nero, divx, xvid, voxware, roxio and the like. if you have any of these, try uninstalling and see if windows media player will work.

You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs ...does this mean.. to burn the cd onto the computer?


Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.

Codec error:use window media player and if play using window media player it is not playig(DVD file) 


Try using a different software to play the file, such as BSPlayer or VLC.
Also, I'd recommend you installing a codec pack, such as K-Lite Codec Pack. Windows Media Player MIGHT play the file once the codec pack is installed!

Regards,
Pelu.

Playing avi files on dvd


It all depends on what media player you are trying to playback the media with. For example, if you're using Windows Media Player, you won't be able to play them back without installing additional codecs. You can download them directly from here for Windows Media Player and other media players: http://www.free-codecs.com/Codec_Packs.htm

Hope this helps. If so, please rate. Thanks.

Windows media player problem


Hi Hardik,

Can you please open My Computer, which should list yrou drives. Click on Tools>Folder Option>File Type and scroll down till you see .avi.

Click on it, and it will show you software assigned to play .avi files. If it is not Media Player, click on Change, pick Media Player out of the list, then click on Ok and close those windows.
Next, click on this link, and then click on Download XP Codec Pack.
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/XP_Codec_Pack.htm

Save it to your deskop, or some place your can find it. Click on it and follow the prompts to install it.
If all that fails, may I suggest you download VLC, which seems to play any video file, here.
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Click on Windows, pick a mirror, download VLC, save it somewhere you can find it, and just click on it to install.
Good luck!
