I cant play my music from my windows media player,, An audio codec is needed to play this file. To determine if this codec is available to download from the Web, click Web Help. how can i solve it.


Windows Media Player although is nice graphically it is resource draining for your computer. You can purchase the codecs from them which rather shocked me that Microsoft would even charge for the codecs for people to use their beloved software that comes with their Windows purchase which in my opinion is rather expensive to begin with. So what most of us do these days is get the free codec files which play movies and other files that Media player will not allow you to do. You can obtain them here for no cost whatsoever. Click Me
Now I usually get the mega packs this covers all of them really I also suggest using the VLC player as an alternative to Windows Media Player it is not as pretty but who cares it plays those hard to play files that are not allowed even when had from a torrent or other methods of retrieval even if the files are protected you can still play them using VLC media player. Now do not start downloading a ton of media players that offer the same stuff you will run into problems with players if you have several of them loaded. Dump the ones except Microsoft Windows Media Player it is a part of Windows software. Just go in and pick this as your default player. I hope this assisted you. John

What is MP3?


MP3 is the prefered method for music downloads.

MP3 is a file format on which music is created for CD downloads which can be played either, on a computer or an MP3 player (like the one on your cell phone.)

Your computer uses pre-installed software called a media player to play the MP3 songs on the CD download. If you have a Windows based PC for example (Windows XP, Vista etc.) when you click on the download - Windows Media Player will open and automatically start playing the songs.

So, you're safe to download the music in MP3 format. It will be of good sound quality.

The CD's I make no longer play in my car and other regular CD players. They are getting embedded in a folder and then burning. I did make sure they are ripping to mp3, not wma. Is there a setting I need to...


Are you writing a "data" CD, with many MP3 files,
or are you using Windows Media Player to burn a "music" CD?
Windows Media Player will convert the MP3 files back to WAV files.

The CD-reader in your car cannot read MP3 files -- it can only read WAV files -- commercial CDs are written as WAV files.

When you put the CD into your computer, how many megabytes of the disk are "used", and how many "tracks" are there on the CD?

Disk will not play after music burned to it using media player version 11. Have 2 pc 1 it works on the is doesnt. Help


be sure under the burn tab you have chosen "audio cd". Also see if the disk you have burnt will play in the computer. It should play either way, where most regular cd players will not play mp3 files.
