Hey I just found out that changing the WMP11 format from WMA files (none of
four types would work) to MP3 files and re-ripping my test CD actually works
and plays now. This can be done by accessing the WMP11 "Rip tab/options" and
changing em' to your liking. However, I have tons of WMA files on WMP11 and
it would take forever to re-rip all my music....so my system tech. also
WinAmp player and importing all my WMA files from WMP11 into WinAmp (which
BTW is a "freebie") and this worked to perfection. I can now hear, play, and
all my WMA files on WinAmp player and forget about WMP11 until Microsoft
comes up with a "patch/fix" for this problem in WMP11. But now that I'm using
I may not go back to WMP11 since it seems to have tons of options and
I guess time will tell.
