hopefully you just need codecs,this pack is probably most popular.

Also check, from WMP's Tools>Options>File Types tab, that all boxes are checked, including DVD.

In the K-Lite Codecs Pack suggested by InTheCity, you can also install the Windows Classic or Home Cinema Media Player, which is very versatile.

There are also regular K-Lite Pack updates (as well as the frequent main pack updates). Latest just out is:

If the above suggested codecs don't work, Google for and download XP-codec-pack-2.4.9.exe

These MS ones worked OK for me on WMP 11.

Some very dubious websites linked to your suggestion...

This is more appropriate(!):

Sorry to be so long getting back to this.
I'm sure that the link you gave is the one I originally followed and I seem to have got an earlier version to the current one. I have had no problems whatsoever with the XP codec pack itself.
I would also add that I did not install the Media Player Classic when it was offered as I use the VLC Media player (which is another brilliant utility) if problems arise.
Cheers, Wak.
