Ok, so at one point in time all the wma files on my computer would play fine. Then one day nothing in Yahoo Music Engine will play and neither will any wma file. I've tried playing them with several different programs. Some say nothing and just don't play, while others, like windows media player, say that it doesn't have the right codec. It's not a DRM problem because I can see winamp acquire it just fine but then can't play it after that. How in the world can wmp not play wma files? I've tried downloading codecs from many different places. I've even tried a few complete codec packs. I have also used several programs to determine that I really do have to codec installed. Here are a few screenshots.

So I'd really like to be able to listen to all my music again. Thanks.

I followed the guide step for step and wma files will still not play. Wmv files still play as normal though. This doesn't seem to be a common problem because I can't find any information on this.
