Have you updated your Windows Media Player? If no do so. I got that same problem when I switched from Win98 to WinXP. If that doesnt work try http://www.google.com, search for "windows media player file types"

make sure you have all the correct codecs installed... that could be your prob. do a search for media player codecs and see if that solves your prob.
