    Basically I've uninstalled the above.... I didn't realise I needed it in order to be able to play my Windows Media Player and iTunes files :eek: :eek:
    I've gone to their website and tried to download it/install it again, but its not having any of it and I just can't seem to work out what's wrong! I've gone to the 'Restore' section under 'Accessories' in my control panel (by advice given on a website), but it comes up saying it's unable to.

    I've been trying to fathom out the problem for near enough 3 hours now....and I really don't know where to go from here.

    Thanks in advance.

    are you installing it correctly?
    what happens when you try to install it ?

    what type of computer is it...try going to there site to obtain the driver they usually come as files that will install on there own if you double click on em.

    Thanks for your reply.... I'm assuming of course I'm downloading the right one.... I have a Windows XP Media Centre machine with the latest version - which one *is* the right one? It's been so long since I started all this, I can't even remember which one I tried!

    I shall ring my pc technical helpline after trying to download the "right" one.

    How about telling us the make/model of the computer and/or motherboard?

    Guess I should have said at the start.... it's an Acer 180 desktop.

    Well after having just spent over an hour on the phone to them and a lot of mucking around their end, the download and installation has been successful.... only now files will play - but there's no sound!! :mad: They go home at 4 so he wasn't able to help me any further, great! I've checked my volumes and everything's fine, nothing on mute.

    I'm now at a real loss as to what to do, it just doesn't make any sense!!
