Hope you can help me with this concern. It's not ultimately critical, since I installed a codec for Windows Media Player to play DVDs (K-lite codec pack). However, I'm still hoping to find an answer here.
First, this has been happening since before I installed the K-lite codec pack, so that's not it, nor has installing the pack improved my situation.
My OS, Windows XP (Media Center Edition 2005), which I just completely reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled the OS and drivers and updated to Service Pack 3, works fine. No problems with peripherals, McAfee antivirus, or anything else so far.
Media Center (the program) however, has been crashing every time I open it and try to play a video, DVD, or just about anything else. The only thing I have managed to do succesfully is look through the settings menu.
The program always worked fine before I reformatted. Bad installation? Service Pack 3 not compatible? I'm I think my computer came with the ability for Windows Media Player to play DVDs, but after the reformat/reinstall it would not. K-lite fixed this, in WMP, but Media Center is not any better. It still crashes every time I tell it to do something.
Any ideas? Is this fixable? Thanks.
