After years of running smoothly, Windows Media Player is suddenly refusing to play some music files, and marks them with a red x. That refers me to the Microsoft page Windows Media Player Error Message Help. After reading that, my symptoms seem most likely to be a problem with either a codec or the Creative SB Audigy 4 sound card. Personally I suspect a codec problem, but I don't know how to confirm this.
ALSO: When I go into the Device Manager, I see a yellow question mark next to Other Devices/Multimedia Audio Controller. There is no information in Properties about the manufacturer.
