I wonder if you can help me out, Iīve just bought a new machine (Windows XP home edition) and suddenly, I canīt watch any of the videos I imported from the old machine (various Mpeg 2 and mpeg 4 formats).
Iīm running Windows Media Player version 11.0.5721.5230 (which is apparently the latest one), but learly there must be either a conflict or a codec I donīt have.
I just noticed VLC player doesnīt work either, the screen just flashes, as if it were trying to read an alien format.
And yet yesterday it was working just fine.
Could you help me out?
Iīm starting to miss my old machine....

"They say that if you play the Windows CD backward you can hear satanic speech; well, thatīs nothing.
When you play it forward, it installs windows."
How exactly did you "import" these videos? Can you move them to another PC somehow (DVD+/-RW, CD-RW, USB drive, etc.) and see if anything there can play them? You need to determine first if the problem is that you botched the copying/moving or if your new PC just can't play anything.

Ms updates are also known to break things more than they fix .
Some have reported similar issues with updates , KB920342 , and KB914440 , even though they have nothing to do with video playback ... you should know ms well ... they fix one thing , and mess with another .
