When I start Windows Media Player 11 I get a message "Your device is using an outdated driver that is no longer supported by Windows Media Player." There is no device like an ipod, etc. I am just trying to play a WMV file.

You may need to update your sound driver.

I am 99% sure my sound drivers are up to date. If I click OK on the warning message, Windows Media Player plays the clip normally. I believe the drivers the message refers to are drivers for some other device but there does not seem to be a way of discovering what device.

Do you have Dell computer?
If so, there are many hits on Google about the error message, and no solution to it.

Yes it is a Dell - I will see if Dell has an answer. Thanks.
