i have reinstalled this codec pack 3 times trying to fix this.
it suggests (but i never did it) to uninstall divx,klite and nimo. i guess i should do that? does the ace mega codec pack put those 3 back on?
and also when i intall it it cant write(copy) these 3 files
i will uninstall these 3 like ACE MEGA says to and see what happens when i reinstall ace.
You have the same exact problem I had.. and I the same problems with my .avi files. No other files what-so-ever... just .avi files. Then I noticed later on as I done my converting and so forth... NOTHING at all was converting and burning properly. As a matter of fact, no software at all would burn a disc, even new/trials I decided to try. Nothing worked.Here is my suggestion... it worked for me.1.
If you have Nero
... uninstall it.2.
If you use Windows Media Player
, stop using them. If you're going to use those softwares on the same operating system your .avi files are on,, I wouldn't dare connect that computer to the Internet.3.
Uninstall all your divers for your cd and dvd drive, then power down the computer.4.
Open up the computer case and disconnect your cd and dvd drives, and boot up the computer.5.
During this login session, you need to use a registry cleaner to clean out your registry.6.
After you've done all of the above, power down, and plug in the drives you disconnected. Then boot it up.7.
After your computer boots, it should find those drives you just connected. After it does, if you have the driver discs, insert them and install your drives.Here are my tips... they are working for me.8.
Whatever hard drive that's going to convert/burn my audio/video, that computer doesn't get connected to the Internet. The reason is this..... I'm convinced that the problems are related to DRM
, and the stop of people converting & burning media on to discs. My personal take on this?, we're all suspects in the DRM conflict.9. DO NOT
download and do converting on that same machine. That goes back to no#8. I'm convinced that something is put on computers that prevents audio/video softwares from converting and burning. I'm too convinced with it. All of the softwares are sharing a few common files, and so are the cd/dvd players. Somehow, it's being done. I'll bank on it too.10.
Whenever you want to watch/here your media,, refer to no#'s 1
Whenever you want to watch/here your media,, DO NOT
use no#'s 1
Don't be tempted to use those programs, if you plan to go online. What you play in them are reported back to the Internet. Again,,,, I personally have a problem with that.13.
Stop using IE to browse and find your .avi files.
Other than that, you're just short of backing up your computer data, and simply reformatting and reinstalling your OS.. but don't even think about it if you're going to use the Internet and you have your converting/burning software installed on it too. Remember this too... I had the same exact, exact, exact problem too, and it was pissing me off. After studying and doing the ol' process-of-elimination a few different times, I knew then, that something is being put on computers to prevent/disrupt, or even destroy softwares that have to do with converting/burning.
I'm near my ending studies of the Windows Media Player, and why it wouldn't play 21 original cd's that were blocked on 1 computer, and the same 21 original cd's were blocked on a different computer that just had the Windows XP Pro installed,, just days before.
Although none of this is cast-in-stone/concrete information, I'm sure you can investigate for yourself. But I'm just telling you from my experience,, not from a text book or a written manual, but from someone who has thought for the longest time, that I had to be the only one with that problem... but now I'm seeing this problem being posted more and more... not just here, but on other forums. And the reasons were this, for most of us,, including myself,,,,
we were all using softwares listed in no#1 & 2, and a few minute other programs.
What a coincidence.
