Problems with sound

History. I decided to wireless broadband connect four computers in the home.
Three computers were ok but one, very cheap icom had no facility to add a LAN card,
while another, older Optima did have, but had been stuffed up. I transferred the hard drive from the icom to the Optima and connected all four to broadband. Worked well.

But, the sound on the hybrid computer does not work properly. Media Player 10 shows Cannot .. play . . . problem COOD11BA. Have checked out all the problem solving tips, including yours (gerryf 9 March, ‘Fixing Windows Media Player.) The speakers are OK, in fact, using an old CD of children’s’ games, which downloads to hard drive, the music plays alright.

What is the next thing to do, please?

Follow up:

I don't know if this is relevant but, using Belarc Advisor, it shows the following as 'locked'

Windows Media Player 10 - KB917734_WMP1 and
Windows Media Player - SPO - KB11564

Welcome to Geeks to Go twalden! :whistling: You transferred the hard drive from one system to another? If so, you'll almost certainly need to reinstall the operating system. Or, if it's XP perform a repair install.

the extract, or the report?

after saving the report, click the ADD_REPLY button at the bottom of this thread. When the window opens, scroll below the message box to FILE ATTACHMENTS, click BROWSE, click the DESKTOP button, then choose report.htm (if you left the default), then click the OPEN button.

Now click the ATTACH button, then click ADD_REPLAY button

The Click the ATTACH button is CRITICAL

Did that but got the same reply

Windows media player cannot play this file because there is a problem with your sound device.

Tried to play on iTunes but that didn't work either.

Both came up with the printed lists but no sound.
