I was wondering if anyone has a solution to an error message in quicktime "Buffer Overrun Detected". Everytime I try to run a movie it will play a few seconds of the .mov, and then this error message pops up and the movie stops. I'm running Windows Xp, I have 512 mb of pc2700 memory, and I'm running an AMD 1800+ processor.

Thanks,
