The photos are too small for me to see and recognize them.


It would help to know what type of files these are.  If you move the mouse point over the file it should show what type of file these are.


Failing that, you can simply tell us if these are photos, text, ect.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

From what I can tell your file names are concert.wmv, concert1.wmv._b, concert1.wmv._c and concert1.wmv._d


First, with the exception of the first filename your filenames are messed up.


concert1.wmv is ok.


concert1.wmv._b, _c, _d these need to be changed as ._b, ._c, and ._d are not vaild file extensions.


rename them:


From concert1.wmv._b to concert1_b.wmv


From concert1.wmv._c to concert1_c.wmv


From concert1.wmv._d to concert1_d.wmv


Secondly to view these videos you need Windows Media which you have but it looks as though Real Player has taken over the extension.


To fix this do the following(*Note you will only need to do this once and thats it):


After fixing the filenames:


1. Pick one of the files and right click it.

2. Hover over the "open with" option

3. In the side menu that pops out click "choose default program"

4. The Open with box will pop up

5. left click on "windows media player"

6. Make sure the box in the lower left hand corner labeled "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is checked then click ok.


That will reassociate the .wmv extension with windows media player and if you followed the instructions above your videos should now play.


As for puting them on a dvd... you could use Nero or Windows Movie Maker.

Hi -

Open that link that you have shown in those pictures

First click "Unblock" then "Apply" - These seem to be downloaded or installed files that are blocked -


Try that and see if anything changes -
