I am running Windows Media Player 10 on my laptop.

EI SYSTEM 4100
Intel 4 processor
Windows XP Home Edition

Basically, I keep getting this error message as well as all my videos saying ready and not doing anything .

Error message:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is located on the Internet, connect to the Internet. If the file is located a removable storage card, insert the storage card.

Numerous different internet sites. Links from www.timekiller.com.

But it doesn't matter if it is a video off my own computer or the internet, it still doesnt work.

Go to Tools, Options, and check the "Connect to the internet ...." option located within the "Player" tab

My problem seemed to cure itself strangely.

Slightly different problem. My CD drive doesnt seem to be operating correctly, as it is unable to rip at a reasonable speed, and it often does not burn cds at all, if it does start burning, it stops after a song or two.

It makes very strange noises, and also does not always accept that a cd is even in the drive. Sometimes it will stop mid- way through ripping a cd.

Any solutions?

Thank you
