Hi

I believe it was corrupted for some reason, the best solution is to run system restore point. Just go to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tool and choose system restore and choose the restore point date which you computer fine. It will back to normal.

I hope it helps you.

Download & install latest version the codec "K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack" on your PC.

You can use alternative Media Players ie. MPCStar Player or VLC Player which can play most of the video/audio formats from the web.

Hope it helps.

You need CODECS for some DIVX files.

Use other media players like Media Player Classic instead.

You can not play WMV or ASF media on a website with Internet Explorer's Media Bar turned on. Internet Explorer has its own player for the Media Bar. To get around the c00d11cd error being generated you need to turn the Media Bar off. To disable Internet Explorer's (version 6) Media Bar click the Media button on the main Toolbar, then click "Media Options" in the new pane that opens. Now select "settings", and then un check "Play web media in the bar".
There is no need to restart your machine as this will take effect immediately.

You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to a CD-R. When you hit the copy button it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!
The most likely cause is DRM. Check the songs on your "playlist" to see if any of the content protected. To do this simply "right click" on each song, then select the "license tab". If any of the songs are protected then you can NOT copy them without the appropriate DRM authority. (DRM = Digital Rights Management) You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.

You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to another computer. When you try and play on the new computer it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!
The most likely cause is DRM. (DRM = Digital Rights Management)
It is likely you purchased and downloaded from a site Like Walmart.com Online stores like these set restrictions on what you can do with the .WMA files you download. It is likely that the DRM licence for your download restricts you copying to another PC. You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.
-----------------------------------------------
You can not copy songs from a CD in the CD drive to your hard disk. Windows Media Player generates the c00d11cd error.

The most likely cause is that something has gone wrong with the special file responsible for the "encoding". The name of the file is: wmadmoe.dll
The first thing we need to do is re-register this file with Windows XP To do this go to the "Start Menu" and select "Run". Now type in the following: regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll

If this does not work then the file itself may be corrupt. To fix this go to the "Start Menu" again and select "Run". Now type in the following: sfc /scannow
This will now scan your XP machine to see if there are any corrupt system files. If there are any then XP will prompt you for the XP CD so it can get a new copy... This may help you resolve the c00d11cd error.

This will get you up and running again, however due to some underlying problems with your installation you may actually need to re-install Windows Media Player.

Please rate this fixya

THE PROBLEM IS EITHER OF THE FILE YOU ARE TRYING TO PLAY WHICH MIGHT BE CORRUPTED OR YOU NEED TO UPGRADE THE PLAYER. TRY PLAYING OTHER DIFFERENT FILES. IF IT RUNS GOOD THEN THE FILE YOU ARE TRYING TO PLAY IS THE CULPRIT.
REGARDS.

Hi. I think the problem on this issue is that the file that you're trying to play is not supported my your Windows Media Player. You can solve this problem by downloading updates for your media player or the codec packs like K-Lite. Also you can just download another media player like VLC Player, you can download this into google, just type in VLC Player and download and install it on your computer. This VLC players supports almost all video or audio file extension. Goodluck!

Update the media player or reinstall a new copy.
That is the 1st thing that you should try.

Thanks

Hi,
This error is generally the result of a corrupt or missing Custsat.dll file, usually located in the C:Program FilesWindows Media Player folder.To workaround this problem:
1. Remove the current Windows Media Player 10 install.
2. Download and install

Windows Media Player 11 for Windows Vista

or

wm_tn_wmp11xp.jpgDownload Player 11 for Windows XP

I tend to use VLC Player, as it plays everything I throw at it..

Hope this helps
