2) i have a Canon zr30mc digital video camcorder, and im trying to get the videon onto my computer. it is hooked up through the DV in/out, and opens with Nero Vision. everything it begins to record the video to the hard drive or to a CD, nero messed up and crashes...what can i do?

I can't address the second one -- you might want to query Nero support -- and give an exact description of the "crash" -- if there is an error message you need to report it fully.

On the first, right click on a downloaded .wmv file and select "properties".

What media player is it currently associated to open with? Typically this would be Windows Media Player by default.

But you can try others -- such as Real Player if you have it -- or download Videolan which plays just about anything:


You can change the default player association through the file properties "change" dialog -- which I think works best if you have Vista

By the way I had a similar problem in Windows Vista trying to play .avi files online in Internet Explorer. Changing the association -- through the individual file properties -- back and forth resolved it.
