    I could never play any MIDI in my computer. Then one day I was testing my direct music and found that if I use the software 'Microsoft Synthesizer' instead of hardware like MIDI Mapper or Roland in my winamp's midi output field, it will play midi.

    So Winamp is playing my MIDI now. But how do I associate microsoft synthesizer with the other midi music which come in a greeting card or other ways?

    I don't know if this will work, but its worth a try.

    Go to Windows Explorer and click on Tools | Options. File Types.

    Scroll down to MID or MIDI. Highlight it and it should be defaulted to windows Media Player. Click Change and choose your program. If its not listed, click Other and browse till you find it, click OK and hopefully it'll play them. If it won't, just go back to where you changed it and try another, or go back to WMP.

    bty, whats your sound card? Control Panel | System. device Manager. Under Sound.
