window media player cannot read MP3 format

Whenever I use total video convert to convert a WMA to MP3 format,window
media player cannot read it and show an error that ' codec 50 mpeg-1 is
missing' although my CD player can still read it(when I copied file to
USB and plugged it to the CD player).Anyone also suffered from similar
problems ?

Hi,

You might to check Control Panel>Default Programs>Set Associations and
see if media player is set as default for mp3

See Method Two in this tutorial

Hope it helps

My default program for MP3 is already WMP.Notice that file which were
already in MP3 ,WMP reads very well.But with MP3 format derived from
WMA,It cannot read.

Hi,

A quick google indicates an incompatibility between some third party
converters and wmp11 on Vista.

You may like to download K-Lite codec pack and try a different
conversion app. in future

'Free-Codecs.com : Download K-Lite Codec Pack 4.1.7 FULL, K-Lite Codec
Pack 4.1.7 STANDARD, K-Lite Codec Pack 3.8.0 BASIC : K-Lite Codec Pack
is a collection of codecs and related tools'
(http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...Codec_Pack.htm)

Hope this helps
