    i accidently saved a 400mb video with a firefox document extension, now i cant play the file because windows gets confused. is there any programs i can use to re-save it with a wmv extension?

    thanks

    My Firefox does that sometimes, all you have to do is change the file extension to whatever it should be by un-checking "Hide extensions for known file types" in windows folder options and then just rename it .wmv or whatever it may be.

    Edit: Just saw your last post about renaming it

    "Hide extensions for known file types"
    Nobody has that set, surely
