    windows media player encountered an unknown error
    winamp - missing codec



    this is the file type - my comp will play wav's but not any of this type!
    Help me - need this codec?!?!

    Its a purely speculative guess, but maybe the compression thing? Or maybe the game people have done something to it so that u can't copy their sound bites?

    Does your sound work at all on your system? If that's the case then this belongs in Softwareworld.

    I got the same errors from some sample .wav files last night in WMP. Nothing would make them play. tried Real player, irfan view, and every other player on my system. Nero wave editor just said there was an unknown error and wouldn't open them. I dunno what the hell they are????

    Actually, Real player even downloaded new codecs before giving me the error message that the extension might be incorrect or the file corrupt. The program they're from works fine but nothing else will open them.
    I checked properties and it all looks ok there?????

    I have all the WMP Codecs and the k-lite codec pack installed so one of my players should be able to open these.
