After downloading vlc all my icons change into vlc. how can i get rid off it?


Deselect the option to make VLC your default player. This should revert them back to normal. However if you want to play back the media files you will have to right click the file and select play via VLC. This will not change the icon of that file back to the cone of VLC, only changing to default will do that. If you were using Windows Media icons before, then selecting Windows Media player as default player will change the icons back. Normal clicking of the mouse on a media file will cause the play back via whatever player is set as the default.

My Hitachi dmp860 player displays the error message "NO AUTHORITY" when trying to play wma files that I originally ripped from my own cds. Why is this and what can I do about it?


When you ripped them, you probably used Windows Media Player which will add copy protection by default if you don't set otherwise.

Either

- Re-rip as MP3
- Re-rip with copy protection off

It is easier to re-rip than to try to remove copy protection.

I cant dissable my default settings to allow windows media player to run, it has always worked previous to installing mcafee security system! could this be the problem and how do i fix it? Thanks


Try completely disabling the antivirus software, firewall, etc. and see if media player will run. If it does then you answered your own question.

If not go to control panel, add or remove programs, and add or remove windows components, make sure the box for windows media player is checked and click next to reinstall.

WMP 11 validation issue


Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, depending upon which version of the Player and Windows that you are using, you might be able to roll back to the version of the Player that was previously on your computer. The procedure varies depending upon which version of the Player you are running.

If your computer is running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000 SP3, or Windows 2000 SP4, you can use the Set Program and Access Defaults feature to remove links to the Player on your computer. Note that this does not remove the Windows Media Player software. To remove access to the Player, do the following: 1.
In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
2.
Click the Set Program and Access Defaults button, and then choose a configuration (such as "Non-Microsoft" or "Custom").

Windows media player can't play .wmv files


  • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
  • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
  • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
  1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
  5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:

Icon doesn't show up in my computer


Do a firmware upgrade first. If not allowed, then download the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool from:
http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1532

"Safely remove hardware" is a normal function of Windows - it allows you to disconnect your Mp3 player without messing it up (unplugging any mp3 player while it is still "thinking" is the number one reason for mp3 player failure - always be patient with mp3 players, and try to always use the Safely Remove Hardware feature of Windows).
