    Hopefully you can help.
    I am trying to play an .avi file that i know works because i have watched on a friends PC. I can see it for a second but then an error report opens and the player closes. This happens in realplayer, wmplayer, divx, and power dvd. Also i have noticed if i dont close the error report the file seems to play fine in wmp, but with no sound.

    Here is an example error message:

    Faulting application wmplayer.exe, version 9.0.0.2980, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000.

    Try right click on the file and select properties and see what it says,could be that the file is not avi.I have downloaded files before that were labeled avi but weren't and it could be that your friend has a codec to play the file that you don't have.
    Is it possible that thi file is an ogm file?You could give this player a try: http://www.corecoded.com/
