    Okay, I went to play a song in Windows Media Player and it gave me an error about not having the required codec, I know I have it set to automatically download the correct codec. But having other applications on the PC I tried RealPlayer, RealPlayer was succesful in playing the file, I would of thought Windows Media Player would have more codecs? Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Sammeh

    Here go to www.winamp.com winamp kicks and has better audio play than WMP and RP. And there's a fair bit of goodies in winamp as well.
