For some months I have used Windows Media9 File Editor for audio and some video.
But it now won`t open a file when I click on "open". The viewing screen does not appear. It tells me to enter figures in HOUR-MINS-SECS, which I do but it still won`t open anything. Then usually the programme freezes and I get the "not responding" message.
I have not knowingly altered or tampered with this programme so I cannot understand why it has worked for so long and now it will not.
I decided to download another Windows Media9, but this does exactly the same.
It constantly freezes and stops responding.
Does anyone have any suggestions please?
Thanks

If you are using Windows XP and Media Player 9.0 is not working properly I would suggest upgrading to verion 10. Go to the following link:

Have you recently installed any codecs? Sufficient memory? Is your system time accurate, your BIOS battery good? I'm afraid I don't have much experience with File Editor, and I'm not seeing much in the way of problems with it on the net.

There's this.

For those who want to help, but have no idea what the subject is, look here.

Thanks ThorXP, but I already have Media Player 10 - thats not the problem. I am referring to Windows Media 9 File Editor and Decoder.
And also thanks Herk.
I had installed a general codec pack (which I since uninstalled). Memory is quite sufficient. Dont know what you mean by "system time" or "BIOS battery", I`m afraid. Sorry

By the way Herk the Windows Media 9 site says that the necessary codecs are automatically downloaded with the programme.

Well, some PC problems can stem from the clock being off - and sometimes, if the BIOS battery (Little coin-sized battery on the motherboard) gets weak, it doesn't save the settings when the computer shuts down, and the clock's time or date gets wrong. Since you mentioned that it was asking you to input it, I considered that time/date could be an issue. Most BIOS batteries last a long time - maybe five/six years.
