Hello,

When I try to use MEDIA Player 11 (just updated yesterday from version 8) to listen to music that is either part of the Media Player's own library or from ripping one of my CDs, it will not play and will give me the following message,

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file or might not support the Codec that was used to compress the file."

This PC is running XP PRO, and had previously been used (a few yrs. ago at my office) to play music using the Media Player.

Is there something else I should install in order to get this to function?

Thank you in advance for your help in this matter. :)

Hi Broni,
Thanks for your reply.
I've tried that twice--each time I get a warning from my protection sotware.
So, I tried the link with the newer PC (VISTA OS), got same warning. :)

I get a warning from my protection sotware.

What did the warning say and what protection software are you referring to?
