Media Player Codec Issue
I'm using Media Player for Vista. Trying to play a .wav file that has
worked fine on previous versions of Media Player, I get this message:
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the
file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

My version of Media Player needs no updates, according to the MS website.
Anyone have any idea as to what might be the problem?

Re: Media Player Codec Issue

Click the Web Help when you get that error dialog - what is the URL that it
takes you to?
