I have recently downloaded some audio files in the .ogg format. I use Media player 11 to rip from cds and synchronise the files with my mp3 player. MP 11 does not recognise the .ogg format and will not let me add files of this format to my library. I have managed to add other files from my hdd to my library that haven't been in such esoteric (and wonderful open source, blah blah blah) formats. MP 11 will play the files after advising me that "this file format is not supported in wondows" it just won't allow me to convert these files... I'm guessing

I just wondered whether anyone had encountered this problem, and if they did, what solution they had to this problem. I'm going to carry on looking for a codec pack or some way of altering what file types MP11 will accept, but any help would be appreciated.

they are the ogg-vorbis format. you can install something like the klite codec pack (basic). This will contain all the codecs you need. Alternatively you can download the codec individually. All are available at http://free-codecs.com/
