Device drivers are specialized software that allow a computer system to interact correctly with a piece of hardware. Many device drivers come pre-installed with Windows XP, and you may have added more when installing new video cards, webcams or CD drives. Updating a device driver helps the hardware remain compatible with newer software and often fixes bugs and other performance problems. Windows XP can automatically update device drivers from the Internet using the Device Manager Utility included with the operating system.

1

Open the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Open the "Administrative Tools" icon in Classic View, or click "Performance and Maintenance" and then "Administrative Tools" in Category View.
2

Double-click on the "Computer Management" shortcut. Click on "Device Manager" in the "System Tools" section.
3

Click to expand the section containing the driver you want to update. Right-click on the drive and click "Properties." Open the "Driver" tab.
4

Click the "Update Driver" button. If you have performed this action before, the system may automatically start searching the Internet for an update. Otherwise click the "Yes, this time only" or "Yes, now and every time I connect a device" radio button to authorize the Internet connection. Click "Next" to continue.
5

Leave the "Install the software automatically" radio button selected and click "Next" again. Wait while Windows searches the Windows Update website for the correct software.
6

Click "Next" and follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the update. If you already have the newest version of the software, windows won't present any update options.

Hey there.

That means your audio codec driver doesnot meet to the sound driver.

Your installed audio driver is not the right version of ur sound card.

You need to download correct driver by downloading it through internet

Windows media player throws error when I play any audio


As you may have already notice, there isn't a problem with your driver.
However to gain a better understand the problem you rule out a couple of things. However, if the this problem is only present in windows media player. Then you should try another play i.e. VLC media player.

1. Go to you device manager and make sure the device is working properly. If not try uninstalling the device, restarted the computer letting windows discover the device again.

2. Next go to windows media player file (press "alt" key to get toolbar in newer version. Select options -> devices select your speaker -> properties and be sure that your audio device is available and selected.

3. Finally if all these options has failed, please use an alternative media like the one mention above (VLC media player).

I hope this have been a great help in your troubles. Please provide feedback on the solution.

Generally the cause of this kind of error varies from case to the next.

What kind of file are you trying to play? That's the first thing. WMP won't play everything. And if it is say, an .rm or .qt file, forget it.

The first thing I would do is reboot the system.

[1] There is a thing called chip creep where the contacts of a device get too hot and the cause the device to 'creep' out of it's slot.

[2] The driver files may be corrupted and need to be re-installed.

[3] Check Device Manager and see if the sound device is functioning properly at all. There could be a resource [IRQ] conflict-something that is rare nowadays but still does happen-in which case you need to change the IO address.

[4] You may have incompatible audio applications running or need a codec for the file you are trying to play; or the file may NOT in fact be a genuine audio file [DELETE IT IF IT ISN'T!].

Your sound card might be in use by another application.

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with
your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may
encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may
be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem,
see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's
documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound
device, and then try to play the file again.
