Error Code C00D1199 (aka: code 80040265) is an error message that can be displayed in several different ways and can be worded different as well, but it all refers to this error message originally posted as message 80040265.

There were a few posts on here about them, but many of the threads seemed to be closed. I just noticed that I have gone through all of the motions and really tried, but no pickle here....well, there might be a pickle, but it is the kind of pickle you get stuck in and is not cool whatsoever.

Here is what I have done:

1. Made sure that the format was supported with windows media player. It was, as it is an .avi, so no problems there.

Here are the types that are compatible:

.au and .snd
.aif, .aifc, and .aiff
.cda
.vob
.jpg
.swf
.dvr-ms
.mp3 and .m3u
.mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2, .mpa, .mpe, .mp2v, and .mpv2
.mid, .midi, and .rmi
.avi and .wav
.asf, .asx, .wax, .wm, .wma, .wmd, .wmp, .wmv, .wmx, .wpl, and .wvx
.wmz


2. I made sure that other .avi's I have in my collection were working properly with the WMP (Windows Media Player). They were, just not the ones I was trying to fix, of course..

3. I made a sandwich and drank some Yoohoo.

4. Installed a sturdy set of codecs with DivX to ensure that that was not it. I know I had to do it before, but I recently cleaned and started my PC from scratch again, so the previous codecs were not there.

5.
Made sure all of my audio devices and drivers were updated and installed properly-for the most part-which I will address again here in one second...

Still no good pickles.....
I have an NVIDIA GeForce 7100 gc. Well, during my expedition, I came across a Windows Driver Detective (http://www.drivershq.com/). It seemed very helpful at first. It scans your drivers and tells you which ones are out of date, so then to my surprise, it told me that 10 of mine were out of date and I think that the NVIDIA may have been one of them. So, it gives you the option to fix all of your problems at once. HOW CONVENIENT, right?? Nope, have to register and pay some sort of software fee.

I may sound like a cheap-skate, but I am. So, I have my conclusion here .. that there may be some sort of information missing from these files or it is possible that there may be some update that needs to be sneezed in my general direction and I would think that the codec pack I retrieved was sufficient, but who knows..it could be that.

So, what is the verdict? I was able to fix a few of my files by doing these things, but there are some I can't seem to budge. Should I give up on them? Let me know what you think or if you have any advice or even questions about my advice/issues.
