I can’t play any of my audio files. My music worked on my old computer but when I transferred the music to my new computer, it stopped working. Wmp tells me that I don’t have the codec for it (because of an unknown form of codec compression?) and my BS player say can’t open file. Strangely some music files still work (The ones I Burned from cds) while the others don’t. I check their formats and it seems like the music files that play are in mpeg 1 layer 3 formats. But not all of my mp3s (mpeg 1 layer3 format) can play. I have mp3s in; 1, 2, 2.5, 3 layers and 1, 2, 3 formats; is this normal? My video files are have no problems playing.
Well, I checked Microsoft and they said it was because of the different headers in the music and a bug in wmp9 but I downloaded the patch and it still doesn’t work. Is this a copy protection measure? If it is a codec compression problem how do I find out what codec compressed it? I have powerdvd(uninstalled), wmp 9, divx plaer,winamp 3,and nero showtime on my old comp. On my new comp. I have wmp 10, nero showtime, divx player, winamp 3(uninstalled), and bs player. They were all installed in the order that I listed.
Btw-My pictures that I transferred over are also having the same problem, Windows can’t read them but new pictures that I save can be read.
