Everytime I go to play a WAV. file I get this error message that I have attached to this. I use Windows Media Player as my WAV. file player as well as MP3 & Video. This just happens when I play a wav. file and I click "Don't Send" but this is really getting old. Any advice as to what I can do to keep from getting this message? I deeply appreciate any and all help.
I run Windows XP, 1GB of ram

Hi onestep
It could be a Codec Failure so WMP does not work with all content or CODECs. There is Little support from Microsoft on this issue if you are not using their CODECs so let's Try this and head for a solution to play the content without WMP. Try this VLCPLAYER first and If the content plays ok if so that's what you want. Some Do complain about the sparse look of that player. Media Player Classic is slightly better but it's up to you. See how you get on with it. Good Luck

Link to VLCplayer and it's Free
