My Windows Media Player will no longer connect to the Internet to, for example, get album information or open the Radio Tuner. When I try this, I just get the standard “The page cannot be displayed” Web page. (I can otherwise access the Internet via a browser.)
I have all the right options set: under the Media Library tab, ‘Update my music files...’ and under the Privacy, ‘Retrieve Media Information for CDs and DVDs from the Internet’ and ‘Update my music files...’. It’s been about two or three months since it stopped working. Until then, all was fine.
I’ve tried re-running the player's installer, switching off firewall and antivirus software and reducing security and privacy Internet Options to 'low', to no effect. Suggestions as to what to try would be much appreciated. I’m using Media Player 9 Series (version 9.00.00.4510) on XP. (Yes, I know.)
Thanks for reading.
