Error when trying to download MS strrets and trips 2006 w/ GPS lo


I have used every version of streets & Trips since 05, and have never had any issue with Win Media Player, currently using streets 2009 on one machine with Windows 7 RC1, which has WMP 11, and on another PC streets 2008 and Vista with WMP 11. You may need to change your default program settings for media back to WMP if you ever had another media player installed.

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:

Problem with Zen nano


· 1. remove all creative software from your pc (do this from start menu/settings/control panel/add or remove programs)
2. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Player 11 runtime. This will rollback the pc to an earlier version of WMP.
3. Download the latest version of the zen driver from this location:
http://us.creative.com/support/downl...ame=Windows+XP
4. Make sure the zen is not connected to the pc and install run the exe file to install the software on your pc. at some point, the install will tell you that the unit is not connected. Connect the unit to proceed. it will also notify you that you are replacing an existing software, or something to that effect. I accepted or said OK to this popup. Once the firmware is installed, my started to work fine. You can now reinstall WMP from microsoft website. Hope this works for you.

you might want to verify that your new player has the latest firmware available, as this might address the unresponsive-button issue you're having. Firmware updates are surprisingly easy - you just download the firmware file from Creative's website, plug in your player, and double-click the downloaded file. It's that easy.

All else failes download the recovery tool from creatives website.

Dell DJ Gen 2 Won't connect


if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.

1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.

2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.

3. Go get this file: fixup.zip Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.

4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.

5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.

A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here: gotzune.com

Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.

For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.

Creative Zen Xtra nomad Jukebox 30gb


You probably have Winders Media Player 11. If you can find another computer that has WMP 10, you can use that computer to do the firmware upgrade, then go back to the original computer. Thingsa should work fine. Otherwise, you need to unistall WMP 11 and WMP11 runtime. Another case of Billy messing us up. And don't even get me started about vista....
