This is strange - I am running the most current version of Media Player and have recorded Nova for my son. At any rate, I have audio - but no video. I have already turned the acceleration totally off and am using the most recent drivers for the Radeon Mobility 9000 IGP card. This computer is a Toshiba Satellite - I think it's the M series.

Any help greatly appreciated

Hello,

It sounds like a simple codec problem, download the codec detective and see if there are any problems http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Sherlo...c_Detective.htm it could be that the video codec has been damaged and needs replacing.

Hope this helps
Regards,

Alan.

I ran the program and the file said that there were no broken codecs. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Media Player. Is there anything else I am not doing?

What type of file are you trying to play, there is the chance that WMP can't play the file.

Alan.

it is .dvr-ms - and it's not a protected file. This computer does not have Media Center installed, but according to WMP - it plays this file format. I can see the image for the program and all the recording information (a description of the episode, when it was aired, etc.)

To enable playback of unprotected *.dvr-ms files on Microsoft Windows XP Home or Microsoft Windows XP Professional, the following is required:

1. Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1

The following registry entry indicates whether Service Pack 1 is installed:

HKLM,SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Hotfix\Q329979

Installed=1
2. QFE Q810243

The following registry entry indicates whether QFE Q810243 is installed:

HKLM,SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Hotfix\Q810243

Installed=1
3. Microsoft Windows XP compatible DVD decoder

Alan.
